Affixed to the facade of certain U.K. properties, you’ll notice small blue plaques. The plaques are there to commemorate and detail either an important event or the notable person or people that once lived inside.
The one on the outside of the Art-deco-style house on Aubrey Walk in London’s swanky Holland Park neighborhood is there to commemorate singer Dusty Springfield.
The seven-bedroom home hit the market Saturday for £14 million (US$19.72 million).
Spanning 7,200 square feet and five stories, the property is the combination of two terraced homes joined into one, according to the listing with Kit Allen of Savills.
The house has a master bedroom suite with a sitting room, dressing room and direct access to the roof terrace, a garden, a 35-foot-long indoor swimming pool, sauna, gym and party room.
“As the former home of legendary singer, Dusty Springfield, it brings together a sense of history and cultural importance with the architectural merits of a home created to reflect Art Deco design principles,” Mr. Allen said in a news release.
Mansion Global could not determine the seller of the home, or when they purchased it.
Springfield, who died in 1999 at the age of 59, lived in the home between 1968 and 1972, according to the news release. She is a member of both the U.S. Rock and Roll and U.K. Music halls of fame and lived at the property when her most famous hit, “Son of a Preacher Man,” was released in 1969.
