The house itself, which was designed by architect Greg Noble, took years to build with stone from China and Italy, and fittings from France and Italy including a walk-in wardrobe as big as many people's living rooms.

And then there's the separate building for staff and garaging for up to ten vehicles. This building includes the cottage quarters and the barn – a special living and play space for children.
