A British tycoon who sleeps in Hitler’s bed and owns the world’s biggest collection of Nazi memorabilia is selling his country mansion for £1.95million.
Kevin Wheatcroft, 59, is one of the UK’s richest businessmen with an estimated £120million fortune.
Mr Wheatcroft, who also owns former Grand Prix circuit Donington Park, has spent decades adding to his collection, which includes a squadron of 88 tanks.
He also famously saved a wooden door to Hitler’s cell in Landsberg Prison where he wrote Mein Kampf.
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 Nazi memorabilia at his sprawling Seven Oaks House estate in Wigston, Leics.
The property, which has its own library, pub, museum space and garage big enough to store 35 vehicles, is now on the market for £1.95million.
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.
