A Piece of Rock ‘n Roll History
A stunning Georgian mansion in Farnham, Surrey is up for sale for £3.85m (or about $5.06M). What makes this special aside from its impressive overall look, luxurious vibe, and over-the-top amenities? Apparently, this home has been used by several legendary musicians to record some of their albums.
Ridgeway House was often used in the ’80s as a recording studio. Sometimes, artists have to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and retreat to someplace where they can relax, clear their minds, have their creative juices flowing and ultimately, make great music.
In the 1980s, it was converted into a residential studio where David Bowie, Robbie Williams, U2, Radiohead, The Smiths, and Stevie Wonder recorded their albums. Unfortunately though, the studio has been replaced by a gym but it still doesn’t diminish the fact that it has been used by rock legends.
Included in the massive house are seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, swimming pool, wine cellar, drawing room, tennis court, an extensive vegetable garden, and a large paddock.
And a big bonus is, once you purchase it, all you have to do is pack your bags and move in. So, you know, if you have some millions lying around, you might wanna consider buying this elegant and historical home.
