Townhouse where Elton John recorded 'Candle in the Wind' on sale for £1.9million

Fancy living in a piece of British music history?

Well, if you’ve got pockets deep enough for the price tag, now could be your chance.

This recording studio turned townhouse in Shepherd’s Bush used to be Virgin recording studios before it went fully residential.

Artists that recorded there included the likes of Sir Elton John, Queen, Phil Collins, The Jam, Coldplay, Kylie Minogue, and Robbie Williams along with many, many more.

The aptly named ‘Town House Studios’ were created by Richard Branson for his record label in 1978.

Prior to that, the building housed the Goldhawk Film Studios, and after Richard got his hands on it, the studios included mastering rooms, accommodation, a canteen, as well as rec rooms.

And now, for £1,900,000, it could be yours.

‘With a blend of Victorian and modern properties scattered all over Shepherd’s Bush, the style of Townhouse Mews creates a generous amount of space and is an ideal property for families who want to embrace all the diversity that London has to offer, but with a subtle suburban charm,’ said Georgia Buckley, director at Dexters Shepherds Bush, the estate agents marketing the property.

The listing reads: ‘The ground floor hosts a magnificent open-plan kitchen/dining and reception room which benefits from plenty of natural light from the unusually high ceilings and bi-folding doors that span the width of the house and lead onto the landscaped courtyard garden.

‘The designer kitchen features integrated appliances and a breakfast bar for informal, every day family-dining thus, enhancing the home’s contemporary atmosphere

‘A stylish, suspended wood and glass staircase leads to the first floor, which also provides its own entrance to the home and offers a second, galleried reception room that overlooks the ground floor.

‘The second floor has another bedroom suite with a large walk-in wardrobe and bathroom, complete with dual sinks and terrace access.

‘The third floor holds two additional bedrooms both offering en-suite bathrooms, and up the final set of stairs buyers will find a charming roof terrace with sweeping views over the rooftops of West London.

‘The extraordinary history of this now-modern family home not only adds character and flare, but means you could be sleeping in the same room that the Sex Pistols once performed in.’
