Imagine living at John Lennon’s house

| |

Imagine being able to look around the place John Lennon once called home. Imagine having a peak at where the legend wrote a number of The Beatles songs. Well imagine no more, as John Lennon’s former home is up for sale on Rightmove.

The six bedroom mock Tudor mansion in Weybridge, Surrey is on the market for £15million and comes complete with an abundance of pop history. The late Beatles singer lived in the property from 1964 to 1968 with his first wife Cynthia, however it was here that their marriage broke down and the infamous Yoko Ono won Lennon’s affections.

Kenwood, named after the well-known food mixer owner Ken Wood who previously lived in the house, was built in 1913 and boasts a swimming pool and uninterrupted views of the Surrey Hills. St George’s Hill was (and still is today) popular with the showbiz crowd and in Lennon’s time Sir Tom Jones is said to have lived there; the area was seen as the ideal choice as it was also close to his band members’ houses.

The property is set over three floors and has been subject to some major renovation works since Lennon lived there. The pop legend made many changes of his own, including an outdoor pool (which has since been moved inside) and the commission of heavy wooden doors at the gate entrance to keep out the prying eyes of fans.

    Anyone wanting this must have more money than taste. Absolutely dire. Lennon was/is a personal hero of mine but I think it would be more of an attractive propostion if it had retained some of the original interiors that some of us may remember from photos back in the hey day. McCartney has much more taste with his St John’s Wood regency period house.
