The historic, four bedroom Grade II listed house is a treasure trove of memories for fans of John, Paul, George and Ringo.

The band spent time writing in the house during their psychedelic period, and John Lennon even wrote lyrics from Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club band on the kitchen tiles. They were later removed and sold for an eye-watering amount at Sotheby’s auction house.
The group were even snapped together in a bathtub in the mews house next door, which is also included in the sale. With its own entrance, the one bedroom self-contained property can either be knocked through to create one large house, rented out or used as living quarters for a family member or staff.
After the band, it was bought by Norman St John-Stevas, the leader of the House of Commons under Margaret Thatcher’s government. For the last 20 years, it’s been a family home, albeit with a patio courtyard and a roof terrace to add to its value.
