SIR Mick Jagger and his girlfriend L'Wren Scott are house-hunting in west London, after years of living in the British capital's prestigious Claridge's hotel.

The ROLLING STONE frontman, 62, and his American stylist lover of three-and-a-half years, took a tour of a seven-bedroom home in Barnes last week (ends23DEC05).

Jagger has been living in Claridge's in Mayfair since his ex-wife Jerry Hall told him he had to move from the apartment next door to her Richmond house, which is home to the couple's children ELIZABETH, James, GEORGIA and Gabrielle.

Hall told Jagger to leave the home in 2003 when she learned he had been taking Scott to the apartment.
