Rolling Stone Wood Selling House In London
Have you ever dreamed of living like a rock star?
Well, if you can’t get no satisfaction from your current home, you could consider buying the £13 million former home of one of rock music’s true wild men – Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood.
Holmwood House, a Gothic style mansion on the edge of Richmond Park in South West London, has been put up for sale by the rock star’s former wife Jo, two years after the Rolling Stone walked out on her for another woman. The property features an extravagant breakfast bar, a giant conservatory where Ronnie Wood’s infamous parties were often held, and seven en suite bedrooms over three floors.
The £13 million mansion also features three kitchens including one with a pressed tin ceiling and a walk-in refrigerator, nineteen toilets and a snooker room, where Wood could often be found with drinking buddy Jimmy White. There is also a separate cottage, garage building, lodge and swimming pool house including a sauna, whirlpool bath and steam room.
The property also boasts almost two acres of land including formal gardens and an organic vegetable patch.
The couple bought the property in 1997 for just £2 million and the former Mrs Ronnie Wood had planned to keep the house after her ex-husband left her for a Russian cocktail waitress in 2008. However, Jo Wood recently told the Daily Mail, “That house needs a big family with lots of kids running around. I don’t use most of it.”
If you are interested in buying the property, it will set you back a tidy eight figure sum. However, over the years it has been the venue for many of the couple’s lavish rock and roll parties, christened ‘Woodfests’ by the Stones’ guitarists’ ex-wife.
And, if you don’t like the red door, you can always paint it black.
