The Pool on the Hill: John Lennon’s Surrey mansion up for £14m

John Lennon’s old digs on the St George’s Hill Estate in Weybridge, where he wrote much of the Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album, are up for sale for £13.75m with Knight Frank.

Kenwood_SGH_Summer_0023The Beatle bought the six-bedroom mansion (called Kenwood after another owner, Ken Wood) back in 1964 for £20,000, and lived there for four years with Wife #1, Cynthia. It’s (probably) where he penned tracks such as With A Little Help From My Friends and Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds for the 70-million selling album.

The property covers 1,110 square metres, and comes complete with indoor pool, sauna and 1.5 acres overlooking the glorious Surrey countryside.

Edward Shaw, Partner Knight Frank Country: “Kenwood is a wonderful character property yet redone in quite a contemporary style, giving it the perfect blend between the old and new. Situated in the exclusive St George’s Hill Estate, the property enjoys tranquillity and privacy whilst only being 23 miles from central London.”
