Brit Tycoon Who Sleeps in Adolf Hitler's Bed to Sell £1.95m Mansion
The world's biggest collector of National Socialist fartefacts is to sell the £1.95m mansion where he sleeps in Hitler's bed.
Kevin Wheatcroft is one of the UK's richest businessmen but is selling his sprawling estate in Wigston, Leicestershire.
Kevin Wheatcroft, one of the UK's richest businessmen with an estimated £120million fortune, has spent decades adding to his collection, which includes a squadron of 88 tanks.
But the 59-year-old, who also owns former Grand Prix circuit Donington Park, is now selling the Leicestershire estate where he displays part of it.
The tycoon famously saved a wooden door to Adolf Hitler's cell in Landsberg Prison where he wrote Mein Kampf.
Kevin Wheatcroft's Seven Oaks House estate is on the market
Mr Wheatcroft secured the door when he befriended a group of German builders in a pub who were tasked with demolishing the building.
He displayed part of his huge collection of NS memorabilia at his sprawling Seven Oaks House estate in Wigston.
The property, which has its own library, pub, museum space and garage big enough to store 35 vehicles, is now on market for £1.95million.
But the successful buyer won't become owner of the haul of historic items.
The 11,000 square foot property also has its own gym, swimming pool, wine cellar, snooker room and even a nuclear bunker.
It also has a two-storey library which Mr Wheatcroft had built specially with an octagonal viewing platform.
The property, which has landscaped courtyard gardens, is being sold by Leicestershire-based Bentons.
