FOR THOSE WHO DON’T MIND A DUSTY PROP­ERTY

Gloucestershire Echo - - OPEN HOUSE -

SHE was liv­ing here when Son of A Preacher Man was re­leased, and now fans of 60s icon Dusty Spring­field can in­vest in a piece of her mu­si­cal his­tory with the sale of her for­mer home in Aubrey Walk, Hol­land Park.

At least if they’ve got £14m to spare…

The leg­endary singer and mu­sic pro­ducer, be­low, lived there in Lon­don be­tween 1968 and 1972 – a fact com­mem­o­rated out­side the im­pres­sive Art Deco home with a Blue Plaque.

An im­pres­sive prop­erty on a hill close to Hol­land Park and Not­ting Hill Gate, it was cre­ated by join­ing two neigh­bour­ing houses to­gether.

It’s set across five floors with the lower ground floor fea­tur­ing a 35ft swim­ming pool, sep­a­rate gym, sauna and Jacuzzi, as well as a bar.

Slid­ing glass floor-to­ceil­ing doors go right across the ground floor liv­ing area open­ing out onto the gar­den, mak­ing it per­fect for en­ter­tain­ing friends in this su­per­fash­ion­able part of the city.

There are five re­cep­tion rooms, seven be­d­rooms and seven bath­rooms, but the high­light has got to be its pent­house. The third and top floor has its own bed­room, bath­room and re­cep­tion room and, best of all, a fan­tas­tic ter­race with panoramic views of the city.

■ 38-40 Aubrey Walk is on the mar­ket with Her­a­cles Prop­er­ties (her­a­cles prop­er­ties.com).
