With mucky water rising to 18 inches, the kitchen, sitting room and outside decking area have been ruined. Much of her furniture, three rugs, and shoe collection and several pictures by photographer Mario Testino are also beyond salvage. "Trouble started following heavy rains over the last bank holiday and culminated in her basement flooding and the pump system clogging up," The Mirror quoted a close source as saying.
"Kate is absolutely gutted. Not only is her house a complete disaster zone, with mud, gunge and sewage everywhere, she recently had some walls repainted in Farrow & Ball paint at great expense. These are ruined. She has been told she is looking at a bill of around 100,000 pounds to replace her outside deck, plus kitchen units, furniture and flooring," the source added.
Moss may later move into The Dorchester hotel in Mayfair if repairs at the North London property cannot be completed soon.
