While most people struggle to find the cash to renovate the house of their dreams, it’s an entirely different story for the super-rich.

I’m told that Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch have bought a doer-upper in the Cotswolds – an extensive project that will cost a staggering £30 million. The sprawling pad in Great Tew has been uninhabitable for many years and the painstaking renovation will include installing a stunning new domed roof.

Of course, Jerry and Rupert won’t be able to stay in the house while the builders are working, so they will have to make do by slumming it at Holmwood House, their £11.25 million mansion near Henley, which I revealed they had bought back in November. The two properties are 40 miles apart, so just a quick hop in a helicopter then.
