Black Sabbath front man Ozzy Osbourne is reportedly moving back to the UK to save his marriage to Sharon. Recent press articles have documented problems in the Osbourne household but viewers of their reality show will know that the couple are devoted to one another. And now Ozzy is prepared to move halfway around the world to keep his 31-year marriage on track.
Although they have lived in LA for many years, the Osbournes also have a luxurious house in Buckinghamshire. Sharon is scheduled to spend the summer and autumn in the UK, working as a judge on the X Factor. While she is here, she will stay at the Buckinghamshire mansion and Ozzy will be coming with her. This will give them precious time together away from the clamour of LA, in the peaceful British countryside.
The Osborne mansion is located at Seer Green, near the sleepy Buckinghamshire village of Chalfont St Peters. The 18th-century Gothic pile is set in seven acres of private woodland and is surrounded by high walls and fences to give the high-profile family complete privacy. It has, however, been the scene of a number of dramas over the years, including two fires, a burglary and Ozzy’s horrendous quad bike crash in 2003. Let’s hope, for their sake, their current stay will be less eventful.
Chalfont St Peters is one of a cluster of charming villages, lying just to the north-west of London, that have become extremely popular with city professionals and expats looking for a country lifestyle within commuting distance of London. Large gardens, quiet neighbourhoods, good schools, excellent transport links and traditional village greens give the area family appeal. If you’re interested check out the Chalfonts, Beaconsfield, Gerard’s Cross, Amersham, Marlow, Maidenhead or Farnham Common.
