News | John Lennon’s Florida House On Sale For $47.5m
With Stunning Features
A beachside Florida estate previously owned by John Lennon and Yoko Ono is being sold on the market for a whopping $47.5 million. Located in Palm Beach, the 14,000-square-foot home known as El Solano cost $725,000 when Lennon bought it in 1980 – a few months before his assassination.
It was originally built in 1919 by famed architect Addison Mizner and features seven bedrooms, library, grand salon, an oceanfront master suite, and a dining room that opens into the pool area and offers spectacular ocean views. There’s not one but two swimming pools. Plus, there’s also a cabana and a tennis court.
Real estate agent Christian Angle told The Palm Beach Post, “It’s an amazing estate home with a rich history. What makes this property very unique is you have a limited supply (of homes) that have a direct, oceanside cabana.”
The current owners bought the property for around $23 million in 2016. It’s located near the homes of rock icon Rod Stewart and author James Patterson.
According to Robert Rosen’s biography “Nowhere Man: The Final Days of John Lennon,” Lennon and Ono never visited the mansion before deciding to purchase it. Instead, “(Lennon and Ono) dispatched a servant to take Polaroid pictures. The servant would tell the real estate agent that he represented a businessman who preferred to remain anonymous.” Also, they planned to renovate the place before Lennon’s tragic death.
