When Mullins, who is worth an estimated £70m, bought the home in January 2019 for £3.5m it was a record purchase for a property in the area favoured by bankers and City financiers.

The outspoken businessman spent upwards of £1m updating the property which he mostly used at weekends

Now single, he lives in a spectacular penthouse in central London where he overseas his business empire that employs more than 450 people.

After putting the home up for sale, he said: ‘It’s been said that ‘the only way is Essex’ but Essex wasn’t for me.

‘Don’t get me wrong it’s a lovely house and I’ve spend well over a million quid on it so whoever is lucky enough to buy it is getting a right touch!’

The ground floor boasts a study, living room, cinema room (pictured) as well as an open planned kitchen, dining and family room

During the pandemic Mullins has spent much of his time in Dubai where he is looking to expand his business.

He was criticised for saying he would only employ people who had a Covid 19 vaccination saying he wanted to introduce a ‘no jab, no job’ policy.’

He was also blasted before Christmas when he said he would prefer a ‘rerun’ of the pandemic over Brexit.

The fervent Remainer claimed leaving the EU would cause more ‘lasting damage’ than the health crisis and said the prospect of no trade deal was ‘one disaster too far’.

The entrepreneur, who runs one of Britain’s biggest independent plumbing firms, was also criticised last summer after saying those who were still working from home were ‘selfish’ and ‘don’t care about the economy’.
