Golden slum­bers

The Wharf - - World Cup Guide -

Wor­ship at the al­tar of mu­si­cal greats by snap­ping up this £1.9mil­lion apart­ment in a con­verted church over­look­ing Abbey Road Stu­dios. Fans of The Bea­tles will be in heaven as, not only have the streets out­side the three-bed­room apart­ment been walked by the Fab Four, but it is also a stone’s throw from Cavendish Av­enue, home of Sir Paul McCart­ney.

The re­stored Grade II-listed con­verted church sits in the shad­ows of ar­guably the world’s most fa­mous record­ing stu­dios where The Bea­tles recorded their 11th stu­dio al­bum,

Its cover fea­tures them walk­ing across the now fa­mous ze­bra cross­ing out­side the stu­dios, a scene still repli­cated as tourists cross and pose minute-by-minute.

The area has been the stomp­ing ground for some of the most fa­mous names in mu­sic in­clud­ing Sir Ed­ward El­gar, Dame Vera Lynn, Judy Gar­land, Ge­orge Ezra, Ed Sheeran, Kanye West and Adele.

Res­i­dents at the prop­erty will ben­e­fit from three-be­d­rooms and three-bath­rooms lo­cated on the top floor of the build­ing.

The main open plan liv­ing space has a mez­za­nine that di­vides the kitchen/din­ing space and the lounge. Fin­ished to a high standard, the apart­ment is ready to move into.

The prop­erty is on the mar­ket with JLL and as­so­ciate di­rec­tor Tom Mid­dled­itch, said: “Ask any­one where Abbey Road is and they’ll tell you it’s one of the most cel­e­brated streets in the world.

“The prop­erty, which is lo­cated within a 19th cen­tury con­verted church, en­joys mag­nif­i­cent pro­por­tions, tall ceil­ings and beau­ti­ful ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails.

“Given its lo­ca­tion in St John’s Wood, I sus­pect it will be pop­u­lar with en­trepreneurs or those linked to the mu­sic in­dus­try.”

The prop­erty is a 34-minute jour­ney from Ca­nary Wharf via the Ju­bilee line at St John’s Wood sta­tion, and is within walk­ing dis­tance of Maida Vale for the Bak­er­loo line.
