Another country pile for his collection! Rod Stewart snaps up Grade II £4.65m listed mansion in the heart of Essex






Rocker Rod Stewart seems to have
caught the nesting egg late - by snapping up a £4.65million mansion to
add to his growing collection of country piles.


The 68-year-old superstar has bought ten-bedroom Durrington House near Epping Forest in Essex.

With
the 18th century pad boasting a rose garden, croquet lawn, ornamental
pond and guest cottages, Rod is definitely going to be popular with his
pals who fancy some quaint English living.

And this isn't his first Essex mansion, Rod owns seven-bedroom Wood House a pad which once belonged to Winston Churchill.

And
he has a 28,000 square foot mansion in Beverly Hills, complete with
mirrored bar and home cinema, where lives with wife Penny Lancaster and
their kids Alastair, seven, and Aiden, two.


The
veteran singer, who is worth an estimated £120million and divides his
time between homes in Los Angeles and a seven-bedroom spread in Essex,
made a canny purchase after securing Durrington House from gold-mining
tycoon Peter Hambro in the same county.

Rod, 68, whose 35-date tour last
year is said to have netted him £20million, is understood to have made
his move after the price of the property dropped from £5million to
£4.65million.


With eight
children by three women, the spectacular house will certainly provide
adequate accommodation. Its ten bedrooms date back to 1712 and overlook a
lake set in 46 acres of pastures and ancient woodland.


His new home has had a long link with banking families.

Petropavlovsk, took over the house from his father, Everard, who had
lived in the property since the Sixties.


Before
then it was owned by Sir Harry Goschen of bankers Goschen and Cunliffe,
while previous residents included the Glyn family, who co-founded
Williams & Glyn bank, now part of RBS.


Meanwhile,
multi-millionaire Hambro has bought trainer Charles Egerton’s spread at
Chaddleworth, near Lambourn, where, according to locals, he plans to
demolish red-brick Head Farm and build a new house.


It is not clear if Rod, who is touring in the U.S., will off-load his Epping home.

MailOnline has contacted Rod's spokesman for a comment.
