Lennon's Former Home Up For Sale

The English country home where JOHN LENNON lived at the height of Beatlemania up for sale in the UK for $11.1 million (GBP6 million). The six-bedroom house outside Weybridge, Surrey, is located south west of London and features five reception rooms, a playroom, sauna and swimming pool. Lennon bought the property in 1964 and lived there with his first wife CYNTHIA and son JULIAN until 1968, when the two split and Lennon starting dating Japanese artist YOKO ONO. Fellow Beatles RINGO STARR and GEORGE HARRISON also lived in the area, although Lennon later revealed he didn't enjoy living there. RICHARD PORTER, who guides 8,000 Beatles fans a year around London and helps run the British Beatles Fan Club says, "In the '60s, Ringo lived nearby and George just down the road in Esher. "But John later said he felt isolated there." In 1968, while his wife was vacationing in Greece, Lennon invited Ono to the house, known as Kenwood. Cynthia Lennon wrote in her book JOHN, that she returned early from her vacation to find Ono in residence at the house and wearing her bathrobe. The property was later sold in the divorce settlement.
