Robbie Williams is struggling to sell his countryside mega-mansion.
The Rock DJ singer put his seven bedroom Wiltshire manor on the market back in September – but despite being one of the most viewed properties in the area, is yet to find a buyer.
Insiders say the former Take That star is being encouraged to lower the £6.75 million asking price, but he is refusing and wants to stick to his guns.
The insider said: “It really is stunning, but it is just not being offered on. The price may be too high for the current climate of buyers, but it doesn’t seem like he wants to come down from what it has been valued at.
“It is causing all sorts of headaches.”
Robbie and wife Ayda put the family bolthole up for sale with estate agent Knight Frank after buying the home in 2009.
The home, called Compton Bassett House, is a plush 71-acre country estate with seven bedrooms, two staff flats and an additional cottage.
It boasts stunning gardens, a football pitch, tennis courts, a walled garden and even a helicopter hangar.
Inside there’s a leisure and spa area comprising of a gym, an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, steam room and sauna.
The insider said: “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 and it needs looking at, because it’s not moving.”
Robbie himself has even taken to trying to push a buy, by talking about all of the happy memories he has made in the family home.
He said: “Compton Bassett House has been the perfect escape for our family. It is where Ayda and I truly fell in love, set roots as a couple, and dreamed of our future family.
“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 (of which there are many in England), 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. We hope the incoming purchaser will enjoy just as much as we have.”
