Inside Boy George's incredible £17m London mansion as pop icon lists it for sale | The Sun

BOY George has listed his incredible North London mansion for sale for a staggering £17million.

The gothic Grade II-listed home boasts six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a meditation space, cinema room and a private roof terrace.



The Culture Club singer, 61, bought the extravagant property following the release of the band's hit single Do You Really Want to Hurt Me? in the 1980s and has called it home ever since.

It was already a striking Italian-inspired villa – but it underwent several refurbishments under George's eccentric eye.

It is now filled with expensive artwork, religious artefacts and quirky memorabilia – including a cast of David Bowie's face.

And it is also significantly larger after reportedly merging with the property next door, once owned by singer Sam Smith, 30.

Photos from inside the "remarkable" 5,453 sq ft Hampstead house show its high ceilings, enormous bay windows and ornate décor.

They offer an insight into how George, real name George O'Dowd, spent the last 40-odd years.

The house, originally known as The Logs, was built in 1868 for engineer and developer Edward Gotto.

It was later lived in by British actor and comedian Marty Feldman, before eventually ending up as the Karma Chameleon singer's home.

Estate agent Aston Chase, which has listed the property with a guide price of £17m, said: "The Logs was historically home to British actor and comedian Marty Feldman, Sam Smith and latterly to another musical celebrity.

"It is unquestionably a truly exceptional residence representing a unique opportunity to purchase a historic Hampstead home reimagined to create a stunning East-meets-West oasis of calm literally abutting 790 acres of North London's iconic Hampstead Heath."
