The deal with John Grove and his wife Clare, included a holiday to Corfu, a six-week stay in a luxury hotel and a £ 30,000 lump sum.
Refurbishment works on the Clooneys’ Grade II-listed Thames-side property began in late 2015, and included the construction of a 12-seater cinema, a subterranean irrigation system, a 60ft swimming pool and an astroturf tennis court.
For the Groves and their next-door neighbor, it meant a daily stream of lorries, trucks and diggers.
At one point, the Clooneys had 1,000 mature trees transported to the estate by lorries and planted around the outskirts of the property to protect their privacy.
A source said: “It is a known fact in the village that the Clooneys” closest neighbors were very stressed by the building work. At the height of the work, there were up to three large buildings in the small road leading to the Clooneys’ house every day.
‘But the Clooneys have been given a lot of back to the community since they moved in. They have incredibly generous in compensating the Groves for the hassle of the building work. ‘
During the course of September 2015, the Clooneys paid for the Groves to take a week-long break on the Greek island of Corfu.
Upon their return, they moved into The French Horn, a hotel and restaurant 300 yards from their home at the expense of the Clooneys for six weeks.
Just remember that the wife of Clooney prepares for childbirth. Cluny’s place of birth was chosen by the clinic Chelsea and Westminster, where they rented a whole wing worth almost $ 600,000, and also hired two doles (assistants at birth) from Los Angeles, each costing them $ 30,000, and a masseuse whose services Cost $ 5000.
The In Touch source said that the spouses had allocated a whole wing for children’s needs with children’s rooms, a spa, a playroom, a library and a swimming pool. They took care of the construction only a couple of months ago, and in the design they were helped by the London interior designer Ilze Crawford. All the items for the house of Cluny were chosen by themselves, and some things were specially brought from Paris. In total, the future parents spent about $ 1 million to re-equip the mansion.
