Watch the rock­ers from your win­dow

CHIL­DREN’S au­thor Roger Har­g­reaves (1935-1988), inset right, who wrote the Lit­tle Miss and Mr Men books — in­clud­ing Mr Tickle, far right — must have felt like Mr Jammy to be able to call Sus­sex House Farm his home.

Pre­vi­ously owned by the late, great Bri­tish ac­tor Sir John Mills, left, the Grade II*-listed half-tim­bered house, right, in rolling coun­try­side at Cow­den on the Kent/Sus­sex bor­der, has re­cently been ren­o­vated and is look­ing for its next lucky owner. It comes with a con­verted tim­ber barn, three cot­tages and ex­ten­sive eques­trian and farm build­ings. That’s not to men­tion a pool, a tennis court, about 172 acres of farm­land and 19 acres of wood­land.

RH & RW Clut­ton has this gor­geous pile on its books for £5.5 mil­lion. OVER­LOOK­ING Abbey Road Stu­dios, a stun­ning, newly ren­o­vated pent­house within a con­verted Grade II-listed church, be­low, is for sale.

The home of the Bea­tles’ fa­mous hits is still reg­u­larly used by pop and rock stars in­clud­ing Ra­dio­head, El­lie Gould­ing and Kylie Minogue, and the buyer of this three-bed­room St John’s Wood flat will have a front-row seat as mu­si­cians ar­rive for record­ing ses­sions. The fa­mous ze­bra cross­ing from the cover of the Fab Four’s iconic Abbey Road al­bum is also on the doorstep of this de­vel­op­ment of bou­tique apart­ments.

If all that isn’t enough of a draw for Bea­tles fans, you might just bump into Sir Paul McCart­ney, who has a home in the neigh­bour­hood.

In keep­ing with the mu­si­cal her­itage, the mod­ern duplex has in­te­grated speak­ers through­out. Mea­sur­ing 1,535sq ft, it is on Sav­ills’ books for £1,895,000.
