Beatles’ drug party house on sale for $3.1m
London: A luxury Beverly Hills villa where the Beatles tripped on LSD, has been put up on the market for 3.1 million dollars.
The house was the scene of one of the legendary band’s most infamous parties, and appears to have retained its psychedelic ambiance with some seriously retro decor, the Daily Mail reported.
The mansion, built in 1949 in Benedict Canyon, Los Angeles, lists previous owners as Cary Grant and Zsa Zsa Gabor.
The Beatles rented the 4,330 square-foot, Spanish-style house from actress Gabor in 1965 while on their North American Tour for some much-needed privacy and rest.
However, after inviting celebrity friends to their hideaway, the band took LSD, embarking on a two-day trip that inspired Lennon and McCartney to write song ‘She Said, She Said.’
With four bedrooms, six bathrooms, two wet bars, a wine cellar, hardwood floors, five fireplaces, six car garage, pool and 2.53 acres, there is plenty of room for rock and roll excess.
The decor - heavily-patterned couches, wooden panels and a faux French chateau vibe - appeared to have had little done to it since the Fab Four paid a visit.
Realtor Roger Perry said that the home was put on the market on August 23 by current owner Pamela Juhos.
The property is listed on Hauteliving.com, a cluster of some of the most opulent homes on the market around the world.
