Fancy a day in the life of a Beatle? Why not make a bid for the former Surrey home of John Lennon, which is up for sale
Had a hard day’s night?
Why not slip off your shoes and take a tour of this luxurious six bedroom Surrey mansion, previously owned by none other than legendary Beatle John Lennon.
John Lennon lived at the grand property for four years in the 1960s with
his first wife Cynthia and is believed to have written several songs
for the Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band at the property.
With Beatlemania at a peak in 1964, the house probably offered a
welcome retreat from hordes of screaming fans and a place
for Lennon to recuperate after working eight days a week.
The house has been given a slick, modern makeover, but no doubt the interiors in the 1960s would have been pretty groovy.
And if he needed a hand with painting or wallpapering, Lennon only had to ask for a
help from his friends, as Ringo Starr and George Harrison both lived nearby.
With its timber beams and formal gardens, the exterior of the house is
surprisingly traditional, especially when compared with George
Harrison’s house of the same era, Kinfauns, the exterior of which was
famously painted in psychedelic patterns.
Recent additions to the home include a
swimming pool and snooker room as well as a dedicated TV room to keep guests and day trippers
Those looking for a hideaway will be pleased to know the property is approached via a long and winding road so it should offer the new owners a peaceful retreat.
So while it’s true that money can’t buy you love, it can certainly buy you
a slice of rock and roll history.
However, you’ll need deep pockets if you’re thinking of making an offer as the home
is now worth just under £14 million. This is despite Lennon having bought the
property for a mere £20,000 in 1964. Imagine that!
