Rod Stewart Buys Home - Another celebrity buys a home and this time it’s legendary artist Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster. They have reportedly spent more than $6.81 million on a Grade II listed stately home just outside London. Insiders claim they are the new lord and lady of Durrington House, on the edge of Epping Forest.
The sprawling country retreat comes with a billiard room, 10 bedrooms, five bathrooms and an impressive basement wine cellar, while the grounds feature four cottages, a carriage house with an 18th-century clock tower, a rose garden, an orchard, tennis court and even a croquet lawn.
But the multi-millionaire singer recently told Mojo magazine he has quite a bit of renovating to do before he can move in to his new spread, revealing, “I haven’t been able to sleep for worrying about roofs and lead pipes, Welsh tiles and felt underlay, damp-proofing and rewiring the whole house.”
Stewart also owns another stately pile nearby, as well as pads in Beverly Hills and Palm Beach, Florida.
