John Barrowman rents out his £2,700 a month bungalow in Wales with huge swimming pool and sea views

JOHN Barrowman has put his stunning Welsh bungalow up for rent, but it doesn’t come cheap.

John, 53, has listed the property at £623 per week and judging by the pictures of the home, it’s worth it.

The bungalow is situated seven miles southwest of Cardiff on a peaceful cul-de-sac in the picturesque village of Sully.

Images show the property has plenty of space for those looking to have a chilled staycation in Wales.

There’s two cosy-looking living areas, one with brown leather sofas and one with bright red ones.

There’s a huge flatscreen television, a large dining table and even a free-standing telescope.

The bedrooms look equally as welcoming, with one featuring a large double bed adorned with Scottish pillows and a patterned duvet cover.

Doctor Who actor was born in Glasgow back in 1967 but his family relocated to America when John was just eight-years-old and he speaks with a US accent.

John pays homage to America in another bedroom, which has cushions featuring the US flag on top of another double bed.

Zoopla describes the home as: “A furnished, four bedroom (one en-suite), detached property comprising of an entrance porch, entrance hall, cloakroom, split level, open plan living area with dining space leading down to sitting room, down again to lounge, spiral staircase to large office (formally bedroom five), fitted kitchen, utility, master bathroom with bath and shower.

“The property also has a double garage, parking for several cars, inner courtyard, a rear garden laid to lawn and a heated, outdoor swimming pool,” the description adds.

And the swimming pool does not disappoint as it takes centre stage in the large back garden and looks out on to a stunning, picturesque view.

There’s also a large decking area, featuring a dining table and sun loungers for when the good weather comes to Wales.

It’s thought that John purchased the large property after falling in love with Wales when he spent time there filming with the BBC.

It’s been reported that the Torchwood actor paid a modest £725,000 for the home back in 2007, according to property website Right Move, and it has remained in his ownership ever since.

In 2010, John was forced to deny claims that he was leaving the area after arranging an enormous three day fire-sale of old belongings outside his home.

He told Wales Online: “I’m not moving, I love Wales too much,” and his agent also confirmed the actor had no plans to sell the property.

“I can confirm that John is not moving to the US. He will be shooting Torchwood over there for five months next year, however he will continue to live in Wales,” they stated.

However, John decided to spend the majority of lockdown with his husband Scott Gill at their second home in Palm Springs, California.

Speaking to the Daily Mail from the United States in August, John said he’s found it tough: “A lot of the friends I speak to on a daily basis are in the UK. If Covid hadn’t happened we’d have been here only for a month.

“I was going to be working on some stuff in the UK, but that all went out the window. Everything stopped. There’s nothing on the horizon until January.”

He continued: “I’m used to being busy, but there are only so many times I could clean the floor or the toilet. By the time I’d done it ten times I was thinking, ‘OK what do I do now?’ Then it just hit me: I don’t have people I can ring up and talk to.”
