Inside Rihanna’s $56m London hideaway
Fans of Rihanna can now buy the London mansion where the singer has been living for the past two-and-a-half years - as long as they've got very deep pockets.
The eight-bedroom property in St John's Wood has gone on the market for a staggering $56.2 million (£32 million) after the A-lister rented it for a whopping $31,600 (£18,000) per week.
And it's a dream buy for those who have followed Rihanna's career since the beginning - as the furniture she used during her stay is included, according to The Sun.
The gated home comes with a carriage driveway with parking for up to ten cars, a gym, an infra-red sauna, and two whole floors for entertaining.
The five-storey property, which features landscaped grounds, also boasts underfloor heating and even a lift for guests.
Rihanna, 32, employed security guards, a private chef and a housekeeper during her stay, The Times reports.
The lucky buyer will have easy access to local shops, as well as the underground station.
Primrose Hill and Regent's Park lie nearby.
The house was originally built in 1844 by builder William Holme Twentyman, and had been designed by architect John Shaw Junior, a favourite of the royal family.
It is the only one of Twentyman and Shaw's original villas on St John's Wood Park which has survived into the 21st century.
All of the others have since been demolished or adapted.
The first owner of the house was Daniel Francis, a diamond tycoon who was a director and shareholder of De Beers Jewellers.
Its most recent occupant was dating Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel during her stay, but the pair ended their relationship in January.
Rihanna told the New York Times during an interview that she loves living in London as she could keep her private life under wraps.
"I enjoy walking around the block. When I go walking, I try to keep a little incognito," she said.
Her fans were sent into a frenzy last year after the singer revealed she'd been living in the capital for 12 months.
Before confirming the news, she shared a selfie, taken inside the house, with a Sainsbury's bag.
"This magnificent house on St John's Wood Park is perfect for a music, business or political mogul," Dounding director of Beauchamp Estates Gary Hersham said.
"It is one of the most important houses to come onto the market in the local area in recent years.
"It is an exceptional property with the garden floor and large garden superb for relaxation while the reception room on the raised ground floor is wonderful for big parties."
