CARMEL COL­LEGE near Walling­ford in Ox­ford­shire was the “Jewish Eton”, a board­ing school with alumni in­clud­ing Ar­ca­dia boss Philip Green, right. Closed in 1997, it has in re­cent years been a film­ing lo­ca­tion for The Iron Lady star­ring Meryl Streep as Mar­garet Thatcher, and for pop videos by Kylie Minogue and Kaiser Chiefs, in­clud­ing front­man Ricky Wil­son, all pic­tured.

Now it is ripe to be­come 166 new homes. The 80-acre site has three listed build­ings which will be re­tained — the sy­n­a­gogue, a Basil Spence-de­signed boathouse and gallery, and an am­phithe­atre. Comer Homes has put the de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­nity up for sale with Sav­ills at a price of £30 mil­lion.

TAY­LOR SWIFT is said to be the buyer of a stun­ning New York town­house. The singer, 27, pic­tured on stage with Mick Jag­ger in Nashville, re­port­edly paid £13.7 mil­lion for the three­storey, four-bed­room home, above, in trendy Tribeca.

It dou­bles as his show­room, with fur­ni­ture and works of art he sources must-haves in­clud­ing a cinema, gym, spa and even its own bar.

An­other sell­ing point was a spa­cious rooftop with a glass-en­closed atrium.

The singer clearly has a soft spot for the Man­hat­tan neigh­bour­hood as she al­ready owns an apart­ment in the same street. on dis­play. Re­cently used for a Chanel fash­ion shoot, the glam house — vis­ited by celebs keen to view pieces in situ — merges op­u­lent style with more min­i­mal­ist spa­ces kit­ted out with ze­bra print rugs and Pop Art. The four-bed­room home is on Bec­tive Les­lie Marsh’s books for £3.9 mil­lion.
