Picture of the Week: Flooding Clooney

As the Berkshire bolthole of George Clooney is hit by the latest round of flooding, we imagine he’ll be turning to his favourite Nespresso phrase: “What else?”

 

George Clooney paid around £10 million for his ‘British bolthole’, The Mill House at Sonning Eye, on the banks of the River Thames in 2014 and now he has sadly found himself joining the many who’ve been devastated by floods in recent months.

The actor and his new wife, human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, previously caused great controversy after their plans for elaborate CCTV systems and renovations and extensions to the Grade II listed, nine bedroomed mansion upset locals. The scheme was attacked as “inappropriate and unsympathetic” and despite its scope having been reduced, criticism has continued unabated.

 

Sadly, Clooney now faces the effects of a washout that has already consumed much of his garden. In a potentially worse situation, The Thames is expected to rise further in the next twenty-four hours and ultimately, this fine, newly restored residence could also end up submerged. Of this property, he’ll no doubt be soon found mumbling: “What else?”

  1. He has a unfair advantage, his wife is a human rights lawyer, and George is a human……. Boris will pitty him, and David knows him too. Shame……

  2. How funny! My father nearly bought The Mill at Sonning to get us out of London as it was so close to our school, Heathfield. Many a landmark in my life played out there. It’s beautiful. I’m sure he loves it. His house in LA is b close to mine when I am there. We have views and good weather but nothing compared to the charm of Sonning.

  3. Money and material possessions are not everything, we should be grateful that we are in good health able to go on long walks and be involved in the community projects volunteering to do free care work, and walk the pavements and admire the view. The rich want us peasants to believe that we are actually mega rich ourselves. George will buy another mansion, as simple as that………..
