Led Zeppelin bassist's Crowborough house up for grabs for a cool £3m
Music buffs with money to burn can snap up their own slice of rock ‘n’ roll history in leafy Crowborough.
An 18th century house once owned by Led Zeppelin star John Paul Jones has been put up for sale in Crowborough – and this ‘stairway to property-heaven’ can be yours for £2.95 million.
The beautiful Grade-II listed Warren House, which looks over Ashdown Forest, was the residence of Zeppelin bassist, keyboardist and songwriter Jones from the 1980s.
Warren House’s new owner will inherit no less than six period-feature bedrooms with oak panelling and historical fireplaces, plus a main building that boasts cellars, a library and even a former scullery.
When the washing up’s done, the new owner can indulge in the estate’s majestic grounds which are regularly featured in the Royal Horticultural Society’s ‘Yellow Book’ National Garden scheme – perfect for green fingered enthusiasts.
Elsewhere across the 11.6 acre site are stables, a swimming pool, summer house, garages and a tennis court.
And if you’re still pushed for space – don’t fret.
The six-figure investment also comes with a separate two-bedroom flat complete with bathroom, reception room and kitchen.
But if rock stars don’t tickle your fancy, you might be interested to know that teen idol singer of the 1960s, Adam Faith, also once called the sprawling estate home.
The property is up for sale with London-based estate agents Chesterton Humberts.
James Grillo, director of the country homes department at the firm, said: “It’s not often that a house with such a rich and varied history comes to the market, especially when it is also in such a magnificent position.
“The private position, convenient location and amazing views, together with the stunning architecture, is what must have appealed to the pop and rock stars that have previously owned Warren House.
“I expect it to attract a UK-based buyer who appreciates all that, as well as the great schools in the area and the ease of the London commute.”
Warren House is on sale through Chesterton Humberts for £2,950,000. For more information contact 02075 944746.
