Gordon Sumner, 71, was the frontman, songwriter and bassist for the Police from 1977 to their breakup in 1986. Thanks to their success, Sting is now worth an eye-watering $550million (£487,000,000) and lives in a £7million 16th-century manor house located in Wiltshire.

It is the couple’s main home which they were said to have purchased in 1990.

It’s reportedly set in an 800-acre estate and has everything from its own recording studio to an organic farm.

In an interview with Architectural Digest in 2007, Sting’s wife Trudie shared the moment in which she told her husband she had found them the perfect home.

She said: “I told him I loved it. He asked why I wanted to buy it. I gave him a lot of reasons, there was silence. Then I told him that there was a 350-year-old tree in the garden and ‘buy it’ was the quick reply.”

The home is also said to have its own lake, a large outdoor swimming pool and conservatory.

Wiltshire covers a lot of popular tourist destinations including Stonehenge, and Salisbury Cathedral and Magna Carta.

The 77-year-old purchased his 10-bedroom 18th century house in 2013, but reportedly didn’t move into it until 2016. He lives in his £4.65million home with wife Penny Lancaster and their sons Aiden and Alastair.

Stewart lives in the large town of Harlow, located in the west of Essex.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Stewart has amassed a huge £238million ($300million) throughout his career.

This has helped him to build his property portfolio all over the world.

Other properties the singer owns include an oceanfront home in Palm Beach, Florida, which is reported to be worth £16million ($20million), which was purchased in 1995.

Ozzy Osbourne also resides in a town outside of London, in a peaceful Buckinghamshire village.
