What a stunning house. I wonder why she is selling it? Downsizing? She put so much work into that house since 1990. I wonder where she will move? With all the money from this tour I assume she could keep this house and buy something somewhere else part time. But maybe this is part of her therapy to not be so isolated. While the house is gorgeous, there is not a neighbor in sight. Talk about a stunning home. I can see this is the place she was riding her scooter around in the 2004 In the Meantime promos LOL.
I'm shocked only 3.5 Euros? And the ad says... "Small" country estate. Just beautiful. If I hit the powerball on Wednesday, I will buy it and invite everyone from the Ledge there to celebrate with me

THANK YOU for posting this!

She has a flat in London from what I know so maybe she's moving there full time.

Maybe she is moving back to LA to devote all her time to the upcoming Mac album.

There that gal goes again, burning her bridges.

I wonder what she will buy to replace it. I know she has the London apartment, but I think she would want some land for her doggies to roam on.

I can't make out everything in the music room, but I do see the Rumours gold album on the wall. I wonder who plays the drums in her house! She has the kit set up on the wall and the piano on the opposite end.

Good eyes Michele
I see a framed Dance album on the right side of that wall.
Maybe her nephew comes over and plays drums or maybe left over from In the meantime.

What an awesome house!

Good for her! This suggests to me that she wants to lead a more social life again. And with that, possibly record more?

The house IS fantastic. She has a great eye for renovation and interior design.

Its 3.5 Million Pounds, not Euro, which is about $5.5 Million USD. I've lived in both Europe and the UK, it gets confusing.

That house is gorgeous though. Absolutely stunning.

I remember reading recently Chris said 4 full time gardeners live on her property. Now I understand why

Indeed. Those gardens are lovely. I have to say, I'm somewhat surprised at the more modest interiors, though. For some reason I was expecting something a bit more grand. The furnishings especially are unpretentious and downright cozy. I guess it only makes sense they'd be understated, though. Matches the lady herself!

Incidentally, the Flinstone House in a suburb of SF is going for 4.2. million. I think Christine's is the better deal!--even if it ain't near SF.

Her house reminds me of Kiln House and Benifolds (albeit in better condition, I'm sure).
Perhaps she should have had the band come over to live communally while making an album.

Her piano looks to have a Stevie influence.

I guess she must be moving full time to the States and just keeping her London pad for visits- makes sense, I guess the upkeep on a nice place like that must be a waste if you are never there.

It tells me she's in a happy place in the States.

It does seem very cozy. You just want to recline against a cushion and read in every room pictured. And I can imagine her cooking in the kitchen.
