Love Me Do: Live Next to Sir Paul and Five Minutes from Abbey Road

Share News:

Money can’t buy you love, but it could buy you an address next to Sir Paul McCartney, provided you have roughly $18 million in your pocket.

The six-bedroom, five-bath Victorian sits what realty firm Arlington Residential calls “one of the finest streets in St. John’s Wood,” and boasts 5,360 square feet of living space and a 187 square foot garden.

The home is set back behind a gated driveway, but also is, as the British politely put it, “unmodernised,” which is what we Yanks would call a fixer-upper. 

Mansion Global reports that the former Beatle’s home is a couple of doors down from this listing, and a five-minute walk to the crossing that appears on the 1969 Abbey Road album. McCartney has lived on the street since 1965.

There are no interior photos of the home in the listing, but we do get some idea of what kind of layout it has from a floor plan. 

There is a master bedroom suite with a dressing room, two bathrooms and a balcony, for one. There are four more bedrooms and two more bathrooms, and a staff bedroom and bathroom.

The home also boasts a large reception hall, drawing room, library, family room or dining room, kitchen with breakfast room, a conservatory, utility room, walk-in pantry, two cloakrooms, and parking for six to eight cars.

If you’re looking for ways to modernize and expand, Arlington Residential director Marc Schneiderman told Mansion Global that some of the homes on the street have also added square footage, some by adding detached studios or summer houses at the end of the garden.

“At least two neighboring houses have been substantially extended by creating basements incorporating a swimming pool, gym, cinema room and additional guest accommodation,” Schneiderman told the publication.
