A front page advertisement in The Jerusalem Post on Sunday advertised the current Ambassadorial residence of the British Embassy as being for sale.

The prestigious 2,860 sq.m. Ramat Gan property, with its huge garden and swimming pool, has been home to a long series of British ambassadors for periods of two years and upwards – but current ambassador Matthew Gould will be the last British ambassador to live there.

“It’s a beautiful house,” he told the Post, “but access and parking are difficult.”

The house at 2 Simtat Hama’alot is on the corner of a small side street opposite the water tower on one side and accessible by a steep staircase from the main road on the other side.
