Robbie Williams can't sell £7million luxury mansion in Wiltshire – but refuses to lower the price
ROBBIE Williams is allegedly struggling to sell his £7million luxury mansion in Wiltshire but is refusing to lower the price.
The Rock DJ singer put the seven-bedroom countryside mansion on the market in September of last year – but is yet to sell it despite huge interest in the property.
Robbie, 47, is reportedly struggling to find a buyer for the Wiltshire mansion – with the Daily Star reporting he has been encouraged to lower the asking price.
Estate agents are said to have suggested that the property should be on the market for £6.75million, but the singer is refusing to drop.
A source explained: "It really is stunning, but it is just not being offered on. The price may be too high for the current climate of buyers.
"It doesn't seem like he wants to come down from what it has been valued at. It is causing all sorts of headaches.
"Online, the house is doing so well, everyone is clicking on it and wants to take a look around, but the reality is, it has been sat there six months now."
Robbie and his wife Ayda Field put the property, which they purchased for their growing family in 2009, up for sale with estate agent Knight Frank.
The spacious seven-bedroom property sits on a 71-acre country estate, and features its own football pitch, tennis court and helicopter hangar.
There is also an additional cottage on site for guests, as well as two separate flats for members of staff including a nanny or cleaner.
The home – which is called Compton Bassett House – has a leisure spa with gym, indoor swimming pool, hot tub and a sauna inside.
Despite bringing up his four children – Theodora, nine, Charlton, seven, Colette, three, and Beau, two – in the home, Robbie put it on the market in 2021.

He said at the time: "Compton Bassett House has been the perfect escape for our family. It is where Ayda and I truly fell in love and set roots as a couple.
"Since then, we have welcomed four beautiful children into the gracious rooms at Compton Bassett House, where we have shared much laughter and joy.
"The gardens and trees have enchanted us with their magic, and on rainy days, we have played and splashed around the indoor pool, much to our delight.
"Compton Bassett House is most definitely a family-friendly house that deserves to have much more laughter and joy within its beautiful walls."
Robbie is still hoping to sell Compton Bassett House in Wiltshire which he bought in 2008 for £8.1million – and admitted he was happy to say goodbye.
“It gives me the creeps,” Robbie admitted in a podcast interview. "Teddy told me, ‘That room scares me. I don’t like that house’.
“I said, ‘It scares me too. You don’t have to sleep there any more’. If there is great grief or great pain or tragedy, I think it can soak into the walls and leave an essence there that remains for a very, very long time.”
“Robbie was in a different phase of his life when he bought Compton Bassett House," a source told the Mirror.
“It seemed like an idyllic hideaway in the English countryside but he never really felt at home there.
“In a matter of months he realised it wasn’t where he and Ayda wanted to settle.
“Now he’s planning a reshuffle of his property portfolio since deciding to buy in Switzerland. The family moved there last summer and rented for six months to make sure they wanted to stay.”
The family want to make their £24million Swiss villa their main home after moving there during the pandemic.
