Ghislaine Maxwell reportedly sells house where alleged sex crimes occurred

Ghislaine Maxwell has offloaded the now-notorious London house where Prince Andrew’s accuser alleges they first had sex — getting nearly $2.5 million to help cover her growing legal costs, according to a report.

The socialite ex of late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein had put her mews house in the super-exclusive Belgravia neighborhood on the market for about $2.7 million, her spokesman first confirmed earlier this year.

It was finally bought by a property developer for around $2.42 million, The Mail on Sunday first reported, citing property records.

The house has long played a central role in her sex-ring scandal — and is where UK royal Andrew was photographed hugging his accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, in March 2001 when she was just 17.

Giuffre has long alleged that the photograph — which shows Maxwell grinning behind the pair — was taken the night she was first made to have sex with the 61-year-old Duke of York. She also alleged in a lawsuit filed in New York last week that she was made to have sex with him in both Epstein’s New York mansion and his private island.

Andrew has vehemently denied the claims, insisting he has no memory of ever meeting Giuffre — and suggesting the snap in Maxwell’s home could be fake.

Maxwell, meanwhile, will be sad about the sale of her London “refuge” because it held happy memories, her spokesperson told the Mail.

The house, just a couple blocks south of Hyde Park, was bought by Hampshire-based property developer Stuart Robinson, the UK paper said.

Maxwell, the daughter of disgraced media baron Robert Maxwell, currently lives in far less impressive digs, as she remains in Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center awaiting trial for allegedly procuring underage girls for Epstein to abuse.

Her family has repeatedly hit out at inhumane conditions they insist she faces, claiming they violate standards set by the United Nations.

Maxwell has pleaded not guilty.

Epstein, meanwhile, hanged himself in his Manhattan lockup in August 2019 while awaiting his own serious sex charges.
