Mayfair Studios was once one of the most famous recording studios in the world. Among the many, many names who passed through its doors are David Bowie, Tina Turner, Pink Floyd and The Smiths. After facing financial problems, the studio closed in 2008, and now the iconic (and absolutely stunning) property is on the market for £24 million (about $35 million).
Located in London’s posh Primrose Hill neighborhood, the home, called Eglon House, was also a shell casing factory during World War I and a milking dairy back when the area was all farmland. The home has been renovated by designer Russell Sage, who modeled it after the iconic Maison de Verre in Paris.
The 13,154-square-foot home has a striking glass facade like its Parisian cousin, as well as seven bedrooms (including a master suite), seven bathrooms, two kitchens, an elevator, an orangery with a private roof terrace, an indoor swimming pool and two reception rooms.
According to the listing, the home has been designed to accommodate a “live-work” lifestyle, since it has plenty of space for a home office. Here’s to hoping that whoever moves in can do work as great as Mayfair Studios once did on the same property.
