Crouch End house where cover of Beatles’ White Album was created: yours for £1.4million
A RARE opportunity to acquire the ultimate trophy among dedicated Beatles fans has surfaced, nestling in the heart of Crouch End.
But prospective purchasers will also need to be well-heeled to acquire the house where artwork for The Beatles’ feted White Album was created, on the market for the first time in 25 years for a cool £1.4million.
The 1950s three-bedroom house, in Hurst Avenue, Crouch End, was the site for brainstorming sessions between Paul McCartney and the home’s designer, pop art maestro Richard Hamilton, in 1968-69.
The studio at the bottom of the garden, where the collaboration took place, covers almost 450 square feet and has air conditioning, its own kitchen and toilet.
Richard Evans, of estate agent at Benham & Reeves in Highgate, who is selling the property, said: “We are beginning to get a few people come along to see the house. We are picking up some response because of the Hamilton and McCartney aspect as well.
“There are only four of these 1952 houses on that street. They are very chalet-style houses, almost pyramid-like and narrower at the top.”
The house and studio are both mentioned in the McCartney biography Many Years From Now.
