The brick-and-stucco mansion was built in the 19th century and is minutes from the famed “Abbey Road” crosswalk
You could put all your loving into this historic fixer-upper neighboring Sir Paul McCartney’s longtime London home.
A six-bedroom Victorian villa, steps from the music icon’s house in St. John’s Wood, hit the market this month asking £16.95 million (US$18.4 million). Clad in brown brick and stucco, the mansion is part of a row of architecturally landmarked private homes built in the mid-19th century.
Mr. McCartney’s home is just a couple doors down on the same side of Cavendish Avenue, itself a five-minute walk from the famed crossing that featured on the cover the Beatles’ 1969 album “Abbey Road.” Mr. McCartney bought the home during the band’s heyday in 1965, according to property records.
The music legend’s next neighbor will have to put in some elbow grease, however, as the Grade II-listed home is unmodernized, according to the listing with Arlington Residential.
