Boy George market his Grade II-listed Hampstead Heath mega-mansion for a sweet offer of £17m

Boy George, the renowned Culture Club star, has made a remarkable move by listing his Grade II-listed mega-mansion in Hampstead Heath for a staggering £17 million. This awe-inspiring five-bedroom residence, known for its unique features including a skylight-ceilinged bathroom and a Buddhist meditation tower, is nestled in the leafy environs of North London. The lavish property recently garnered attention on the Channel 4 series “Selling Super Houses,” where aspiring estate agents vied for the opportunity to sell extraordinary homes like this one.

Originally constructed in 1868 for engineer and developer Edward Gotto at a cost of £9,000 (equivalent to £1.3 million today), the mansion exudes opulence with its triple-height ceilings, a grand staircase, and exquisite stained glass windows. Its kitchen is adorned with marble work surfaces, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and a private bathroom featuring exposed brickwork and a colossal skylight serving as the ceiling. Boy George’s personal touch is evident throughout the house, with religious artifacts, gothic decor, colorful paintings – including one of David Bowie’s visage – and even a DJ deck in one of the entertainment rooms.

This magnificent residence, a central part of a Grade II listed building constructed in the late 19th century, stands on a quarter-acre plot overlooking the coveted Hampstead Heath. Boy George, who acquired the property in the 1980s after the success of his hit “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?,” lauds its ‘unique location.’ Interestingly, he shares celebrity lineage with former owner British actor and comedian Marty Feldman, and Sam Smith, a fellow high-profile artist, who resides nearby.

Hampstead Heath’s property market stands in stark contrast to the national average, with the average property price in the area ranging from £1,806,748 between 2021-2022, compared to the country’s average of £327,693, as reported by property website Zoopla. Boy George’s decision to part with his extraordinary mansion offers an exclusive opportunity for those seeking to experience the grandeur of a Hampstead Heath lifestyle.
