Robbie Williams’ $ 9.2 million estate is haunted, but has its own helipad and hangar
It’s also most likely haunted, but at least that makes up for that by having its own helipad and helicopter shed, a quad track, and plenty of hiking trails. Among other things.
Compton Bassett House sits on 71.55 acres (28.96 hectares) of land and offers a total of 19,913 square feet (1,850 square meters) of living space. Despite the name, it’s not technically a house, but an estate consisting of the main house, a guesthouse (that’s what Knight Frank’s list calls it), a car garage, a helicopter hangar and a workshop. In between you will find acres and acres of manicured lawns and woods, paddocks, water features, a garden with pavilion, a tennis court, a soccer field, the aforementioned quad track, hiking trails and all the seclusion from the world you could possibly want at a time like this.
The estate dates back to 1659, but the current house was built in 1935. Throughout the 1990s, when it was owned by architect Sir Normal Foster, it underwent extensive modifications, which explains the elegant combination of vintage and modern elements, as well as many rustic touches. . When Williams recently moved into the house, he revealed on his social media that he had come to believe she was haunted. Her daughter, for her part, refused to sleep in her room, and the singer admitted that this gave her “goosebumps” also.
The main building has three levels, with the entire lower level transformed into a recreation center. Think of it as your own home spa, the ultimate indulgence: there’s a 73-foot (22.3-meter) heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, dedicated locker rooms, and a fine gym. equipped. Since UK weather is proverbially temperamental and almost always gloomy, if you can’t walk outside, you might as well have a nice place inside to burn the extra calories.
The middle level contains the master bedroom with its bathrooms and four reception rooms. The third floor offers guest accommodation in four en-suite bedrooms and two children’s bedrooms. For more privacy, guests can be accommodated in the separate, self-contained cottage, which looks pretty enough to serve as a vacation home in itself. The staff have separate accommodation in two apartments in the main house, with everything they need for their daily lives.
Compton Bassett House is a rural estate, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at it. It’s completely cut off from the world but luxurious enough that you don’t feel isolated or private, beautiful and very stylish. The fact that it has a helipad and hangar means you can connect to the bustling city in minutes.
