David Bowie's Former Recording Studio Is Now for Sale
One of London’s most exclusive properties, the Eglon House, has just hit the market. The seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom, 13,154-square-foot Primrose Hill home dates back to World War I, when it was a shell casing factory. Later, the space was home to Mayfair Recording Studios, where David Bowie, Pink Floyd, and Tina Tuner recorded some of their biggest hits. The three-story Eglon House is characterized by its striking glass-block façade and has an elevator, indoor pool, wine cellar, and cinema room. Architectural Digest describes it as “a luxurious take on industrial chic with exposed shuttered concrete ceilings and plenty of visible structural elements throughout.” The space is modeled after a groundbreaking home built by architect Pierre Chareau in Paris. The master suite’s blue carpet is the exact same shade as the master bedroom found at Chareau’s house. There are also four additional bedrooms, two children’s suites, and two reception rooms along with two—a professional and domestic—kitchens. The cost of this gorgeous house that’s perfect for entertaining? A cool $35 million. Check out more photos of the Eglon House below.
