George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin buy English estate
The home was listed for $16 million last year
Newlyweds George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s have closed on a multimillion-dollar spread in “Downton Abbey.”
The couple are the lord and lady of the Mill House, a 17th-century manor on the Thames in the village of Sonning, about 40 miles from Central London, according to the New York Daily News. They purchased the house nine days after their Venetian wedding, according to the Land Registry office in Gloucester, England.
The mansion sits on a four-acre island in the Thames and is just an hour from Highclere Castle, the 5,000-acre estate used in the hit PBS series “Downton Abbey.”
The nine-bedroom estate was listed last year for $16 million but the price the celebrity couple paid was not disclosed. [NYDN] – Christopher Cameron
