Tom Hardy snaps up £2million pile
MICK JAGGER and RICHARD ASHCROFT have a famous neighbour – TOM HARDY.
The actor has bought a £2million Georgian property in Richmond, south west London, close to THE ROLLING STONES and THE VERVE rockers.
He’s planning to call it Manderley after the country manor in Forties thriller Rebecca, starring legendary British thesp Sir LAURENCE OLIVIER.
Even though Tom’s a big deal in the States after brilliant performances in films Warrior and Lawless, and as Batman villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, he’s staying close to the manor he grew up in with his new property.
He was born in Hammersmith and brought up in East Sheen, where his mum and dad still live.
A source said: “Tom’s going to keep good company among the rock elite — Mick and Richard are literally both just up the road.
“He’ll have his work cut out before any entertaining starts, though, as it needs a fair bit of work. It’s a stunning property with a huge ballroom, which he’s up for renovating.
“Naming it Manderley is fitting too because Laurence Olivier is one of his heroes. He’s planning to make it a home for his son Louis but it’s not known whether he will live there on his own or not yet.”
