As part of its bailout deal with European financial leaders, the Greek government agreed to sell off a total of 70,000 assets, including prized islands and picturesque stretches of coastline. The Greek Embassy in Holland Park, London, was also up for auction at a price tag of $28.45 million in April, according to the International Business Times. (Photo: REUTERS/Andrew Parsons)
