Robbie - who already owns an £8 million property in Wiltshire - wants his daughter Theodora to grow up in London and the new property is location in the heart of Holland Park. It boasts huge palatial reception rooms, an indoor pool and cinema room in the basement. A ballroom-sized master bedroom was once described by King Edward VII as "one of the finest rooms in London," according to the Daily Mirror.

Death Wish director Michael Winner died in January aged 77. He took possession of Woodland House from his property tycoon father in 1978 when it was still split into three sizable flats. He spent a fortune creating the home with his wife Geraldine. He put the house up for sale in 2011 with an asking price of £60 million but found no takers. The £17 million offer from Robbie Williams was ordered to be accepted by executors.

Estate agent Andrew Langton, of Aylesford International, said: "The most important thing is that Woodland House has gone to a family and not a developer, which is really what Sir Michael wanted."
