Famous guests include the Queen's cousin, Prince Michael of Kent, Michael Jackson and TV presenter Sir David Frost.

Geller is now offering Sonning Court, in Berkshire, for £7.95million – less than half its previous £15million price tag.

Other guests included illusionist David Blaine and musician Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics.

The house was built in 1970, but has been renovated and expanded since Geller and his family bought it in 1986.

Standout features include a glass conservatory with stunning views of the River Thames and a glass meditation pyramid in the garden.

Geller said his house looks out on "a piece of living art that changes throughout the year."

It also has the usual trappings of a luxury mansion including a heated pool, jacuzzi and a helicopter pad.

The main house has over 10,000 sq ft of accommodation.

The ground floor boasts a reception hall, two drawing rooms, a grand glass atrium, conservatory, dining room, study, conservatory and kitchen.

It even has a separate maid's quarter.

The first floor features eight bedrooms and bathrooms.

While the basement has an entertainment hall, cinema and gym.

There is also a separate cellar with a wine vault, panic room and safe.

Outside, a Japanese water garden features a koi pond, traditional Japanese bridge and three interlinked ponds as well as a 6ft natural waterfall.

There is a four-car garage with a flat above, a professional floodlit tennis court and a large heated, covered swimming pool.

Sonning Court owns about 250m of the towpath of the River Thames, with the mooring accommodating up to 18 boats.

Geller added: "The house is beautifully Palladian in style and visitors frequently tell me how much it looks like the White House in Washington, whether that’s stars of entertainment, royalty or presidents."

Geller said he extended the house "to make it more balanced and symmetrical" because he's a "believer in the ancient art of Feng Shui".

Feng Shui is the practice of arranging pieces in living spaces to create balance with the natural world.

He added: "Sonning Court has been designed so positive energy can flow throughout the house at ease and impact those who are living there.

"Another of the really special things about Sonning Court is its seclusion and privacy. Most people who drive through the village would have no idea this house is here.

"You have to drive through two gates to enter and it's really set back. It makes you feel like you are entering into your own world when you arrive home."
