A home which was once owned by late musician Freddie Mercury is up for sale.

The property was built in the Neo-Georgian style in 1907, features a fully mirrored dressing room, a double-height dining room, library, a bar, and Japanese-style garden with water features and a topiary.

The late Queen frontman bought the property in 1980, which is located in Garden Lodge in Kensington, West London, is on the market for offers in excess of £30 million. The home itself was once described by Mercury as “his country house in central London”.

After purchasing it, Mercury set about renovating it to fit his unique sense of style, and art collection from around the world.

Following his death in 1991, Freddie Mercury left the house to his best friend Mary Austin, who went on to live in it for the next 30 years.

“This house has been the most glorious memory box, because it has such love and warmth in every room”, Austin said of the house. “It has been a joy to live in and I have many wonderful memories here. Now that it is empty, I’m transported back to the first time we viewed it”. 

She added, “Ever since Freddie and I stepped through the fabled green door, it has been a place of peace, a true artist’s house, and now is the time to entrust that sense of peace to the next person”. 

All potential buyers will also be vetted ahead of viewing, to make sure that they have the required funds to purchase the property.

Any details regarding the house were not published online at the time of writing.
