It also boasts a whopping 50-inch plasma screen TV, library, as well as a top of the range gym.
Elton is clearly making the most of his retirement from touring following his final show of the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour in July.
The tour, which began in 2018, was a resounding success for Elton and grossed $816,840,988 worldwide.
The star has chosen to hang up his boots, citing a desire to spend more time with David and their kids.

However, Elton added that he hasn’t given up performing for good and will likely still play ‘the odd show’ every now and then.
Family is important to Elton who previously called his sons ‘the greatest thing’ in he and husband David’s lives.
Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2016, he said: ‘If you’d had said to me ten years ago I’d be sitting on your show married to the man I love and have two beautiful children I would have said, “You put acid in my drink.”
‘But life throws you challenges and life throws you curveballs — great curveballs — and these two children have come along at a time I never thought I’d have children.

On his 75th birthday, Elton wrote a letter to his sons published in Time magazine where he called them his ‘proudest achievements’.
He wrote: ‘Zachary and Elijah, you two are the greatest gifts I have ever been given
‘You have filled my heart with love and my life with purpose and meaning in ways I didn’t think were possible.
‘You are my proudest achievements, and I love you both so, so much … Whoever you grow up to be, just be you — fully and completely you.’
