WISHIN’ AND HOPIN’ FOR A BEAUTIFUL HOME? DUSTY SPRINGFIELD’S FORMER SEVEN BEDROOM ART DECO MANSION HAS BEEN PUT ON THE MARKET FOR £16.5 MILLION
Singer Dusty Springfield lived in the stunning seven-bedroom west London home between 1968 and 1972.
The 7,200 sq/ft Art Deco property, which boasts a blue plaque, is now on the market for £16.5million.
The property boasts a leisure complex with a 35ft swimming pool, a separate gym, sauna, bar and hot tub.
The stunning Art Deco mansion where Dusty Springfield once lived has gone on the market for £16.5million.
The singer lived in the seven-bedroom property in Kensington, west London, between 1968 and 1972, at a time when she was one of the world's best known pop stars. She shared the home with her lover, Norma Tanega.
The 7,200 sq/ft property, which has a blue plaque commemorating Springfield's residency, has since been refurbished to the highest standard and oozes modern luxury.
It also boasts state-of-the-art Lutron lighting and underfloor heating.
The roof terrace offers stunning views over west London.
The 'beautifully refurbished' property is being sold by estate agent John Taylor. Managing director David Adams described it as 'what everyone in London desires'.
Mr Adams said: 'I am very happy to bring such a prestigious house to the market. It is an architectural one-off. It is a very unusual building. It was two homes, but it has been knocked into one so it is a large lateral space.
'The Art Deco architecture is of great interest, as it the provenance - it was lived in by Dusty Springfield and there is a blue plaque outside.'
There has already been significant interest in Dusty Springfield's old house, which costs 75 times the typical home in England and Wales.
Mr Adams added: 'Sales in the area are down 72 per cent on the same period in 2015, which was down 41 per cent on 2014.
'For it to be put up and get so many calls is quite unusual at the moment - it is getting attention and shows as long as you have the right features there will always be someone to snap it up.
'It has got fabulous views, there is a spa and the separation of the living areas which is great if you have teenage children.'
