The former head of the tech giant, Philips, died in 2005 aged 100.

Textile trader Marc Brouwers then bought the 350-acre estate, which is situated in a forest outside Eindhoven.

He's been trying to flog the property – now publicised as The Philips Estate – for over two years.

According to local media, both Microsoft founder Bill Gates and rock legend Bruce Springsteen are interested in buying the estate.

Brouwers told a local magazine that the two multi-millionaires have daughters who would enjoy the stables and horse-riding and jumping facilities.

Gates' oldest daughter Jennifer is an equestrian rider who competed in the 2018 Longines Global Champions Tour, while Jessica Springsteen is an American show jumping champion rider who has represented the United States in international competitions.

Whoever buys the property will have over 40 rooms and eight bathrooms at their disposal.

Built in 1934, the house also includes a gymnasium and outdoor swimming pool.
