We've all watched property shows and thought to ourselves, just how on earth do they have a budget to buy that?
Well a mystery buyer has just splashed out £50m on the late Michael Winner's luxurious mansion, Woodland House. The question is - who?
The mansion belonged to movie director Michael Winner for over 30 years and during that time he spent millions renovating it.
Converted from three flats originally bought by his father, George, the property is actually still leasehold - and when the lease runs out in 32 years, it will cost the new owner an estimated £15 million more to extend it.
The sale has been agreed almost three months after the death of Michael Winner, although he originally wanted leave it to the local council to be used as a museum, but they couldn't afford the upkeep of the property.
As can be seen from these photographs, Winner had a penchant for traditional - but lavish - interiors.
In fact, the opulent red main bedroom was once described as the ‘one of the finest rooms in London' by King Edward VII.
And the property's past is just as colourful as its interiors.
Hollywood stars don't just grace the walls of the cinema room - it's rumoured that actor Warren Beatty once snogged Michelle Phillips, the Mamas And Papas singer, in this very room.
Interestingly, there were also rumours that Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, who lives next door, was interested in the property, but these have since been discounted.
So, who would live in a house like this? Watch this space.
