Gossip has it that Simon Cowell plans to leave Holland Park and neighbours such as Robbie Williams for Wimbledon. Cowell has made his name and fortune with TV successes such as The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent (most recently he was behind the BBC’s The Greatest Dancer).
He’s reportedly spent £15m on a new home to be nearer to an excellent school for Eric, his four-year-old son with American partner Lauren Silverman. Another Wimbledon home said to have interested them is The Grange, close to the common and the village, designed by Sir Aston Webb who was the architect for the facade of Buckingham Palace.
Built in 1889, the handsome and impressive property has eight bedrooms, an indoor pool and gym. It is for sale with Robert Holmes & Co, poa.
