There are six bedrooms in the main building, plus two more in a separate mews house

Campbell initially put the Grade II-listed house on the market for £24m, according to the Daily Mail.

The property is listed by estate agents Strutt & Parker, who are now asking for offers in excess of £20m.

Earlier this year Campbell was left fuming when his tenant reportedly cheated him out of £1.5m in rent.

The Mail reported Campbell, 48, was forced to go to court for an eviction order after the tenant failed to pay up.

The stunning six-storey pad boasts six bedrooms in the main house, as well as a separate two-bed mews house that can be accessed via an underground passageway.

There is also an incredible drawing room, cinema, library, kitchen, and lift, with jaw-dropping views across the Thames and Albert Bridge.

Campbell claimed he was “cheated” out of £1.5m worth of rent by a previous occupier

The house was designed by Campbell’s wife Fiona Barratt, an interior designer whose grandfather founded Barratt Homes, and was refurbished last year.

Ex-Tottenham and Arsenal defender Campbell is believed to have owned the property since 2004.

But he was left seething after a rent dispute with the occupier of the property.

The renter, who claimed to have sold his insurance business for £1billion, was locked into a two-year contract through estate agency Savills.

Campbell told the Mail earlier this year: “Savills got the guy in. Initially, all seemed well. The tenant had apparently just sold his insurance business — for £1billion.

“He paid the deposit and three months’ rent. But that was it: not a penny more was paid.”

Campbell is said to have hired a private investigator and discovered the renter was named in the Panama Papers, which exposed the financial records of the rich and famous.

He added: “He’s apparently getting divorced, he’s paying two or three staff, he’s paying school fees. He’s paying everyone — except me.”

Savills said references and credit checks were carried out, adding: “The decision to proceed with a tenancy rests solely with the property owner.”

Campbell has gone into management since retiring from playing in 2011, having spells with Macclesfield and Southend.

But he also boasts a stunning property empire worth a whopping £50m, and his own furniture business with wife Fiona.

On top of his eight-bed townhouse, the 73-cap England defender owns the nine-bedroom Grade II-listed Hallington Hall in Northumberland, as well as a luxury penthouse flat in Chelsea.
