The Former Home of John Lennon Lists for $11.7M
The charming English manor where John Lennon lived, and wrote some of the Beatles’ top hits, is on the market for almost $11.7 million (or £8.9 million). The talented musician bought the estate, dubbed Kenwood, with first wife Cynthia in 1964 for £20,000. My, how times (and prices) have changed.
The 1.5-acre immaculately manicured property has been upgraded since then and now boasts a combination of 21st century luxury and original Tudor-style details. Wood paneling, grand fireplaces, exposed beams, and window seats give guests a strong sense of place, as do the ground’s extensive English gardens.
York stone, low box hedging, specimen plants, and herbaceous borders intermingle to create a fetching, bucolic haven. Split-level terraces give future-homeowners a place to enjoy countryside views of Surrey Hills while entertaining.
Six is the magic number inside the manse, with six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and six large reception rooms. A second structure houses a posh indoor pool, shower, spa-like sauna, and changing rooms, according to Curbed.
With outdoor bliss and indoor luxury always at your fingertips, this estate gives buyers the best of both worlds. Tim Garbett of Knight Frank has the listing.
