Tax bill forces Nicolas Cage to sell £5m UK castle

Thursday October 15, 2009

Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage is reportedly putting his Somerset castle on the market in a bid to free up some cash.

Midford Castle, an 18th-century property which sits in 47 acres of parkland and woodland, was snapped up by the star for £5 million in 2007.

It's the latest in a property-selling marathon for the Con Air actor.

He recently sold a home in Bath, worth  £4 million, a $3.55-million New Orleans mansion and his $35-million Hollywood estate.

The news comes shorty after the actor was ordered to pay over $6 million in overdue taxes.
