After a spectacular four-day wedding celebration, they were hardly going to settle into married life in anything less than the lap of luxury.
Fresh from their honeymoon, George Clooney and his British wife Amal Alamuddin have reportedly splashed out £10 million on a stunning Grade II-listed manor house in Berkshire.
The newlyweds are now the proud lord and lady of The Mill House, a sprawling 17th-century Georgian mansion on the River Thames in the British countryside. The elegant nine bedroom, eight bathroom limestone domicile has amenities fit for a king and a queen and affords the pair unrivalled privacy and luxury.
The house was bought at the end of last month through a privately held company. Clooney and Miss Alamuddin married in Venice last month, but they are said to have honeymooned in the local area.
