Singer Robbie Williams has listed his period Wiltshire home, Compton Bassett House, for £6.75 million (approximately $9.2 million).
The home, on the fringe of Calne village in southwest England, was the family home of the former Take That star who married actress Ayda Williams in 2010. The couple designed an ‘escape’ for their family – complete with an indoor swimming pool and mystical gardens amid its 71.55 acres.
With an eclectic living space and daring turquoise kitchen among its most beautiful interior assets, this property is among the most striking in Wiltshire – and sits amid the world’s best homes.
‘Compton Bassett House has been the perfect escape for our family. It is where Ayda and I truly fell in love, set roots as a couple, and dreamed of our future family,’ says Robbie. ‘Since then, we have welcomed four beautiful children into the gracious rooms at Compton Bassett House, where we have shared much laughter and joy.’
Perhaps the most beautiful of these rooms and the catalyst for our future living room ideas is the maximalist family room, licked in blue paint behind the gallery wall – giving the space an eclectic aesthetic.
These turquoise tones similarly flow into the kitchen, where the large kitchen island stands as the focal point of the space. Other notable kitchen ideas include their trio of hanging lights that act as a fashionable solution to task lighting.
Moving from the kitchen, the home has four further reception rooms, a master suite, and six other bedrooms. With its upholstered bedhead, plush chairs, and an ornate rug, the master chamber combines traditional bedroom ideas with a contemporary twist – complete with soft pastel furnishings and chic photographs.
Alongside this, the estate boasts a luxe leisure complex with a 73 foot-long indoor swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, and gym. These amenities continue to the exteriors, where the ‘magical garden’ includes a tennis court and a view across Wiltshire’s rolling hills.
‘The gardens and trees have enchanted us with their magic, and on rainy days (of which there are many in England), we have played and splashed around the indoor pool, much to our delight,’ Robbie and Ayda also share in the discussion of their garden ideas.
‘Compton Bassett House is most definitely a family-friendly house that deserves to have much more laughter and joy within its beautiful walls. We hope the incoming purchaser will enjoy just as much as we have,’ they add.
Compton Bassett House is currently listed with Knight Frank (opens in new tab) for £6.75 million.
