Boris Johnson has put his north London home on the market as he readies himself to fight to become the next Prime Minister of the UK.
The 54-year-old has listed the Islington property for £3.75million, a rise in value of nearly £2million over the £1.9million the four-bedroom end-of-terrace house changed hands for in 2005.
Monthly mortgage repayments on the property would come in at around £17,629 for the home that the MP previously shared with his former wife Marina Wheeler.
In January this year the property had been put up for rent, which would have cost the new tenants an eye watering £2,000 a week.

Earlier this week Johnson’s leadership campaign was bolstered by the backing of former defence secretary Gavin Williamson.
Mr Williamson is not yet making a public endorsement, but sources said he was playing an active role in bringing MPs into the Boris camp.
Allies of Mr Johnson hope the recruitment of the former chief whip – who is well known for his organisational skills and network of supportive MPs – could yet prove a critical factor in the leadership race.
