He has since appealed it and is awaiting a decision from the planning inspectorate.
Nearby resident Stuart Vaughan, 77, said: "It has got glass overlooking these fantastic views. There are no street lights in West Compton and no light pollution so when he puts the lights on it is lit up and it looks like an alien invasion from Mars."
Harriet Ray, who lives in the Manor House in West Compton, said: "The building is in a prominent position on the summit of the hill and overlooks the houses and gardens of West Compton residents, causing a lack of privacy both in summer and winter.
"At night the property is lit up like a Christmas tree so that the skyline is dominated by lights from the building."

Managing director of Acorus Rural Property Services Limited James Whilding said in a planning report on his behalf: "The design seeks to provide housing of exceptional quality with high quality design, construction and material quality."
