Neighbours of Rolf Harris are selling up their homes

The neighbours of disgraced paedophile Rolf Harris are selling their luxury riverside homes after he returned from prison

The neighbours of disgraced paedophile Rolf Harris are selling their luxury homes after he returned from prison.

A total of three multi-million pound properties near Bray, Maidenhead, are up for sale.

One property, a large waterfront home with five bedrooms, is listed for £2.75 million.

A description of the house from the agents reveals it features large, spacious rooms, three quarters of an acre of land and an indoor swimming pool complex with a sauna. 

A source told the Daily Star Sunday: ‘The owners are in their 40s and have a family, so there’s no surprise in the community that they have decided to sell up and move.

‘Rolf isn’t seen out and about a lot, but for parents his dubious past is enough of a reason for them to want to leave.

‘Throw in the fans and the press presence and it’s not a recipe for happy families.’  

The other properties include one home which is for sale for £8 million and a third for £2.5 million.

Harris, who spends much of his time caring for his wife Alwen, 85, has kept a low profile since completing his jail term at HMP Stafford.

The former television presenter was sentenced to five years and nine months in jail in 2014 for indecently assaulting four girls.

He served nearly three years before being released. 

The 87-year-old was cleared of a further four counts of indecent assault in May this year.

Harris is reportedly planning to appeal against his convictions and is said to be eager to relaunch a career in television.

He was recently seen on a shopping excursion to Screwfix.
