The Grade-II listed house in Mayfair, central London, has four bedrooms and is on sale for £9 million
It was once HQ for the Beatles’ record label, Apple Corps, and later home to Tory Norman St John-Stevas
A Georgian townhouse in Mayfair that was once HQ for the Beatles’ record label and home to one of Margaret Thatcher’s closest advisers has gone on the market for £9million.
The Grade-II listed house in Charles Street, Mayfair, was owned in the late 1960s by Apple Corps, the Beatles’ music company.
The Fab Four spent time at the grand London property before they split.
John Lennon painted graffiti on to the tiles in the kitchen, but unfortunately for Beatles fans the scribbles were later sold at auction more than a decade ago.
The band posed together for a photo in the bath that stood in the middle of the sitting room in the adjoining mews house.
This one-bedroom property, linked to the main house at basement level, comes as part of the sale.
Apple’s headquarters were also in the Mayfair area, in Savile Row, and the band played their final live performance on the roof of Apple Corps HQ in January 1969.
There are four more en suite bedrooms in the main house, with a family room, large basement reception area, drawing room and dining room, plus a patio courtyard and a roof terrace.It doesn’t have a garden but Berkeley Square gardens and Hyde Park are a short walk away.Much of the cornicing, flooring and plasterwork date from the time of its construction in the mid-18th century.
Following the Beatles-era at Number 27 Charles Street, the house belonged to flamboyant Conservation politician Norman St John-Stevas, a member of Margaret Thatcher’s cabinet.
David Lee, from Pastor Estates, said: ‘The house will no doubt appeal to a family buyer looking to be close to all that Mayfair has to offer; including the various private members clubs, fine dining restaurants and luxury boutiques of Bond Street.
‘The house has huge scope for further alteration and adaption with the added benefit of separate mews accommodation to the rear accessed via Hay’s Mews.’
