London: Beatles’ fans could now own a slice of rock history by shelling out a cool 15 million pounds for John Lennon’s former Surrey home.

But happy couples beware, as every owner since the Imagine singer has said to have sold the luxurious mansion due to divorce.

The composer lived at Kenwood in the wealthy St George’s Hill area between 1964 and 1968.

Lennon wrote most of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band at the six-bedroom home, which featured in the 1988 documentary ‘Imagine: John Lennon,’ the Mirror reported.

His love affair with Yoko Ono began while he lived at the mock-Tudor mansion with then-wife Cynthia, leading to the couple’s divorce in 1968.

The 1920s house last sold for 5.8 million pounds in 2007.

Lennon paid 20,000 pounds for the pad, whose neighbours include Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis and Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty.

The Beatles star’s long lost LSD stash was said to be uncovered by builders working on the 1.5 acre gardens two years ago.

Lennon married Ono in 1969 and moved to New York two years later, where he was shot dead in 1980.
