There are probably plenty of Americans out there who don't know all that much about British musician Robbie Williams. But take a look at the Beverly Hills estate the Take That singer is selling and you'll figure one thing out: The guy is a huge soccer fan.
Williams recently listed his two adjoining Beverly Hills properties for a grand total of $3.27 million, according to real estate website Zillow. And while many of the features seem pretty standard for a celeb home: guest house, pool, 4-car garage, lots of privacy … one definitely isn't: a regulation soccer field outfitted with commercial-grade lighting and covered in netting to keep it debris-free.And when Williams isn't gathering 21 of his closest and fastest friends for a friendly game on the field, he's gathering them inside the watch the pros. The 39-year-old has a soccer-themed media room in the main house complete with flat-screen TV, wall projector, recliners, and a bar for hunkering down during World Cup days. Turns out Williams was once a member of a Los Angeles-based amateur team full of Hollywood types over 30, including Dermot Mulroney, Ziggy Marley, and Jason Stathan, but it's not clear if the team held games over at Robbie's place.
Unfortunately for Williams, he was unable to find a buyer who was gaga enough over soccer (or football as the Brits call it) to pay a premium for the place. He bought the 5-bedroom, 4,659-square-foot main house, which also includes a 2-bedroom pool house, along with a 1-bedroom house, which came with the land he built the field on, back in February 2005 for $3.7 million, more than $400,000 more than he just sold the combined properties for.
According to Zillow, the "Angels" singer, already owns a nearby 6-bedroom, 8-bath home, which he picked up in July 2002 from country singer Clint Black. Williams is currently in a relationship with actress Ayda Field and the couple welcomed a daughter last September.
In addition to the field, media room, and all those bedrooms, the property Williams just sold has lots of other amenities too, like the original hardwood floors in the main house (which was built in 1947) , high, beamed ceilings, stainless steel appliances, a giant deck, sweeping views, and a hot tub for soothing sore muscles after those soccer games … or whatever the new owner's sport of choice is. (Sorry Robbie!)
