The eight-bedroomed neo-Georgian luxury property boasts a swimming pool, sauna room, Jacuzzi, suede-lined cinema room and its own private security company.

It was purchased by Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, 38, – Colonel Gaddafi’s favourite son – in 2009 and had previously been up for rent for a staggering £10,000 per week.

A sign from estate agents Knight Frank was stood outside the eight-bedroomed home this afternoon.

Residents feared members of the Gaddafi family could return to the home following the violent uprising in Libya, where rebels are said to be close to overthrowing the regime.

Mike Freer, 50, Conservative MP for Finchley and Golders Green called for the property to be seized by the Government and asked for the Gaddafi family to be barred from entering Britain.

He said: ”The house is in one of the wealthiest parts of London. People buy there because it is a very safe area and close to central London.

”There are quite a large number of ambassadors resident there. People are not happy that they might have Mr Gaddafi or Mr Gaddafi’s son turning up and living there.

”Clearly if the house has been bought with money they shouldn’t have then it should be handed back to the Libyan people.

”Other members of the Gaddafi family have tried to escape the anger of the Libyan people by flying to Malta and the Lebanon but have they have rightly been turned away by those nations.

”Britain must take exactly the same stance and refuse entry so they do not come and use the house located in Hampstead Garden Suburb.

”This house and any other assets in the UK should be seized until the provenance of the family’s funds can be determined.”

The sprawling property, in Winnington Close, Hampstead Garden Surburb, is close to Bishops Avenue – so called ‘billionaires row’.

It was bought mortgage free by Capitana Seas Limited, a holding company registered in the British Virgin Islands.

Future occupants will no doubt enjoy under floor heating throughout the four-level double-fronted property, which has an electronically operated rubbish store.

Neighbours in Winnington Close yesterday said they had not seen members of the Gaddafi family at the home for some time.
