Charlotte Church 'not a millionaire anymore' as she's 'forced to downsize'

Charlotte Church, the singer-songwriter who rose to fame nearly three decades ago, has reportedly had to “downsized” her home after declaring that she’s no longer a millionaire.

The 38-year-old, who was believed to have amassed a fortune of £25 million in her teenage years, stated back in 2014 that she didn’t have “a lot of money”.

Now, the Classical BRIT Award winner has reiterated that she doesn’t possess the wealth she once did, stating recently that she’s not a millionaire “anymore”. This comes after Charlotte reportedly sold a property in her native Wales earlier this year, reports the Mirror.

The house, known as the Spinney in Dinas Powys, was purchased by Charlotte in 2010 for £1.3 million.

The six-bedroom property, which boasts three acres of land, was listed last year with a guide price of £2.25 million, according to WalesOnline.

However, it was reportedly sold earlier this year after the price was reduced to £2 million. Last month, the Sun reported that Charlotte made almost a million-pound profit from the sale.

Charlotte Church has reportedly sold her home in a bid to “massively downsize” and move into a semi-detached house with her family, amid suggestions that financial considerations played a part.

In an interview with Closer magazine, Charlotte is quoted as saying: “I am not a millionaire anymore.”

In the same interview with Closer, Charlotte described her former property, The Spinney, as “beautiful” boasting a “big mansion house” near a forest.

She is said to have remarked: “We had a school there for a bit and a studio. When it is used by the community, it makes sense, but when it is not used, it doesn’t.”

Previously, Charlotte purchased Rhydoldog House in Cwmdauddwr for £1.5 million back in 2021. Since then, she has converted the property into a wellness retreat named the Dreaming, which opened its doors last year after extensive refurbishments.

On the retreat’s website, Charlotte shares: “I signed a piece of paper that tied my life savings to the bricks and mortar of Rhydoldog House, which set me upon a journey that has completely changed my life, and continues to do so.”

A synopsis for the retreat states: “The Dreaming is a place for healing through experiencing beauty and wonder. It is a place for everyone: affordable and inclusive, where anyone can learn to heal and even become the healer that their community needs.”

According to Charlotte, “By learning how to create meaningful and magical experiences that make people remember what is possible, we can transform our relationships, communities, and even wider society.

“The beauty we all are capable of creating is accessible. It is our birthright. It is within us as part of our ancestral memory. And our mission is to remind you of it.”
