Contestants move into this luxury mansion ahead of 8 gruelling weeks of live shows.
With the 12 finalists announced live in Simon’s latest, and most brutal, twist to the X factor
series, the contestants are now preparing for a further eight challenging weeks of singing, performing and battling for that number 1 Christmas spot.
In the meantime, we’ve just discovered the cool £7 million north London house that the contestants will be staying in during the process – and it’s bound to make next few weeks a bit more bearable for them!
In typical X Factor
tradition, Simon has rented an exclusive home for the finalists which boasts spacious living areas, multiple bedrooms and an indoor pool to relax in after another gruelling week of shows.
According to property site Zoopla, the fancy pants house was previously listed for sale at a cool £7 million.
Situated in London’s suburban borough of Barnet, the finalists can enjoy the thrills of the capital with the feel of the countryside.
Surrounded by woodland and parks, Barnet is the fourth largest borough, and now the coolest.
Entering the new build via its private gates, with cars scurried away via the car-lift, contestants will be welcomed into a colossal hallway large enough for them all.
Moving through the neutrally designed home, we can imagine the competitors hanging out on the elegant velour sofas before kicking back in the house’s cinema room.
For those looking for a quieter space and time to rehearse, the smaller living space, finished in a monochrome tone will offer privacy.
Kitchens are the new social spaces in homes and this one does not disappoint! Covering a huge area, the room is large enough for the boys to make food, whilst the girls have a drink at the bar and the groups surround the dining table.
Space is obviously important for all 21 inhabitants, but rooms equipped with modern bunk beds and plenty of kettles for calming cups of tea are provided!
Living life in the lap of luxury will give the contestants a taste of the prospective winner’s lifestyle and is sure to keep them battling for their wining spot!
