The Former Home of John Lennon Lists for $11.7M



John Lennon’s Former Bucolic Surrey Home Asks $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.
