In one home resides Jimmy Page, Bill Wyman's restaurant is just a stone's throw away, and Robbie Williams' £17.5million mansion lies centre of attention, like the former Take That man himself.

The Like A Prayer star also owns two other properties in the area, with two mews cottages close by, dominating the area just like she has the charts.Tom Cruise East Grinstead.

The A-lister purchased the £2.5million property back in 2006 and offers an indoor swimming pool, sports pavilion and six bedrooms.
