British rocker Sting is set to make millions in the London property boom by selling off two of his homes for a huge profit.

The Police star recently sold a house in Green Park for $12 million (£7.5 million), and now he has put his nine-bedroom mansion over looking St James's Park on the market for more than $36 million (£20 million), according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.

The publication reports Sting and his wife Trudie Styler bought the expansive property for around $9.1 million (£5.7 million) in 2003, so he is set to make around $24 million (£15 million) profit.

The couple is now mainly based in New York.
