The Thames floods garden at George Clooney's $20-million mansion

George Clooney's $20-million) English property suffered the consequences of heavy rainfall recently, which caused the River Thames to break its banks. A warning from the Environment Agency cautioned that his village, Sonning-on-Thames in Berkshire, was susceptible to flooding and resulting water "flowing out into low lying areas."

While George's Grade II listed mansion Aberlash House is currently unaffected, a large area of his garden has already been submerged and it may well creep closer to the house if the rain continues.

The French Horn restaurant, which sits on the opposite side of the river to George's home, has also been affected by the heavy rain. The restaurant has river access steps where customers can visit by boat; however, by Wednesday the rising water levels submerged the steps, and the river could soon spill into adjacent gardens.

George and his wife, Amal, will surely do what they can to ensure the flooding doesn't reach their house, which has been undergoing extensive renovation since they bought it in October 2014.

George and Amal bought the property in October 2014.

The couple have had a swimming pool and pool house added to the property, along with a large terrace and private theatre. In August, they were also granted permission to install CCTV cameras around their home.

The nine-bedroom property is set in four acres, surrounded by trees and expansive gardens, offering the couple seclusion and privacy. It also has a separate cottage for guests or staff.

Other famous people who live in the village include Home Secretary Theresa May and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.
