Kenwood: sales particulars - January 8, 1969.

The sales particulars for Sunny Heights have already been on here (hence two important properties for sale); now comes the corresponding ad for Kenwood, from the pages of Queen magazine, January, 1969. I'd say the pictures were probably taken in the summer of 1968, at roughly the same time as Cathy's photos (see posts passim).
They don't show anything particularly new, but Kenwood pics of whatever hue are always welcome round these parts. Again, these likely date from the period when Cynthia, Julian, and Lil were occupying the house, whilst John and Yoko were living in Montagu Square. Note the blue attic window to the right; more on this to follow:

Another good shot of the sunroom end, taken from one corner of the swimming pool area:

And the pool itself, Eye in place:

There was an owner between John and Bill Martin, though details are sketchy. Bill bought the house in around 1970, and owned it into the 1980s.
Many thanks to our old buddy Mark Lewisohn for digging this one out of the archive.

  1. Great post - the actual sales sheet for the house! I wonder how much it went for when it was first sold?
