Michael Winner - Michael Winner House On The Market For $96 Million

British filmmaker Michael Winner has put his childhood home up for sale for $96 million (£60 million).
The Death Wish director had hoped to leave the lavish mansion in Holland Park, west London "to the nation", but he admits he can't afford the upkeep and he wants a "simpler life".
And he's hoping to offload the property before he to weds fiancee Geraldine Lynton-Edwards, reports Britain's The Sunday Times.
The 75 year old, who has lived in the house since 1946, says, "It's a very big job. It's like running a museum. There are 46 rooms, nine lavatories, seven bathrooms and a swimming pool. We have 168 light bulbs outside the house to beat off the thieves... We also have 3,400 bulbs inside the house and they are all different. It costs me a fortune to have a man in to change them. We paid £1,000 the other day.
"I want a simpler life. Geraldine wants me to sell the house. It's a new start. It's a new life. The upkeep, the pure hard work in keeping the house going, is a nightmare for two people."
Led Zeppelin rocker Jimmy Page lives next door to the sprawling property, which has been visited by movie greats including Marlon Brando and Sophia Loren over the years.
