He fought neighbours and planners for a decade to build this £10million ultra-modern home in the Cotswolds.
Now it appears Rowan Atkinson has given up the controversial property to his ex-wife – after leaving her for a younger woman.
The Mr Bean star, worth £100million, is believed to have forfeited the Oxfordshire mansion as part of a divorce settlement with former BBC make-up artist Sunetra Sastry, 55.
Meanwhile Atkinson, 63, is living with his new love – 34-year-old actress Louise Ford – and their new baby in his £5million property in Hampstead, north London.
The modernist Cotswolds estate, filled with hi-tech gadgets, comes with an underground garage for the Blackadder star’s fleet of supercars.
Although locals dubbed it a ‘space age petrol station’, it has won a top architecture award.
Friends said they were surprised Atkinson was willing to give it up ‘his life’s work’ when he ended his 24-year marriage to Miss Sastry in 2016.
