Alan Wilder lived in a mega mansion in the UK for years

Alan Wilder is known as a musician who enjoyed success as part of Depeche Mode.

He lived in a lavish home in the small town of Itchingfield.

Located in West Sussex, there is plenty of nature for those in the area to take advantage of.

The village is peaceful and Alan enjoyed privacy on a 28.86 acre estate.

He listed the home for £4.5million


The stunning mansion was built in 1936 and is a staggering 11,871 square feet.

It includes a whopping eight bedrooms, three bathrooms, a reception hall, a dining room and a sitting room.

There are also luxuries inside, such as a pool and sauna.

What's more, it had lots to keep visitors entertained with a tennis court, gym and steam room.

Alan lived in the property until earlier this year when he listed it for £4.5million.

The singer decided to move with a heavy heart but said he would not go far.

He said: “I have really loved being in this area. We are probably not going to move far away.

"We’ve had a few gatherings over the years, decade parties, 40s, 50s, 60s.

There is lots of green space in the area


"I have speakers we put on the outside walls for those occasions.

"There are no neighbours nearby so we can crank it up a bit.”

Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page lived in a Gothic tower house in a "relaxing" part of the UK.

Bob Geldof lived in an "atmospheric" part of the UK for 35 years.
