Williams Wants New U.k. Base
Singer ROBBIE WILLIAMS is reportedly planning to splash out on a new mansion in Britain ahead of his TAKE THAT comeback.
The British pop star is set to purchase a $7.5 million (£5 million) Tudor property in Tunbridge Wells, England, to keep as his base while he tours with the boy band that made him famous. He reunited with the group in July (10) and they're preparing to release a new album in November (10).
The six-bedroom home Williams has his eye on boasts a converted oast house as well as two cottages on its grounds - and residents in the area are thrilled with their potential new neighbour, who recently visited the local Elm Tree pub for a drink.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "He asked the barmaid about the area. It's the talk of the village."
The Angels hitmaker, who currently lives in Los Angeles, purchased a lavish 18th century property in Wiltshire, England, in 2008 but he was forced to slash $1.6 million (£1 million) from the price tag to offload it last year (09).
