The lucky contestants that have made it through to the X Factor live shows have moved into this lavish mansion with an indoor swimming pool.
If you fancy living it up in the luxurious west London home that this year’s X Factor hopefuls have settled into, you’ll need pockets as deep as Simon Cowell’s.
What’s the property like?
The grand red-brick detached house contains an impressive 10 bedrooms, but with 36 contestants, they’ll still have to share - at least until some of the acts get voted off.
There’s also a huge open plan kitchen, six luxurious bathrooms, and plenty of space to socialise thanks to four large reception rooms.
Additional perks include an enormous cinema room, integrated audio and video system and an inviting indoor swimming pool. Plus, there's a CCTV system and secure electric gates to make sure the partying doesn't become too rowdy.
Away from the main property, there’s even more living space available, as there’s a two-bedroom coach house with its own drive. Perfect for the production team and X Factor staff that need to be on hand.
It sits in landscaped grounds of around an acre, but you won’t have to worry about watering the plants as there’s a built-in irrigation system. Parking isn’t a problem either, as there’s a garage with room for several cars and loads of off-street parking.
Where is it?
You can find the imposing house in Ealing, West London, and it marks a change from the usual X Factor pads which are typically located in North London.
It sits down a leafy residential street that is only a short walk from the shops, bars and restaurants of Ealing Broadway.
How much does it cost to rent?
The house has been available to rent for £12,500 pcm since August, but you’ll have to wait until early December if you want to move in yourself. You’ll need to factor in the council tax too, which stands at £2,880.
What about to buy?
It hit the market May this year for an eye-watering £7,395,000, but was taken off in July, presumably when the owner decided to give renting it out a go.
What’s the area like?
The current average value of a property in Ealing stands at £755,528, according to Zoopla data. While that pales in comparison to the previous £7.4m asking price for the X Factor house, it’s still well above the English average of £326,209.
What is interesting about the area?
Ealing is known as the queen of the suburbs and earned its name for its Edwardian and Victorian detached houses and green spaces.
It’s also extremely well connected, as it’s already on the District and Central line, but will also be on the Crossrail route when it opens next year.
