Dusty Springfield was a famous English singer whose brilliant career stretched over five decades. As one of the most successful British singers the world has ever known, her name is synonymous with inspiring and invigorating music. She would become included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just weeks following her death in March of 1999.
Unfortunately, she had an earlier than expected death, with a diagnosis of breast cancer in 1994. Her claim to fame was never being afraid to show her unique personality, even leaving mascara on for weeks at a time. Her beautiful estate is now currently on the market.

Her home in London, England, is now listed for $19.72 million. One of the first things you’ll immediately notice on the ground floor is the beautiful open concept. Out of the five floors in the home, it’s the largest.
There is an elegant entrance hall, a living room, and a dining room. The kitchen serves nicely to provide a family gathering area that has an entryway into a beautiful garden. If you head to the bottom floor, there are plenty of state-of-the-art amenities that give real value to the property.
It includes a modern fitness facility and areas for leisure time, along with a large 35-foot swimming pool. There is also a well-placed sauna to unwind after a long day and another room that can be used for get-togethers or parties. Altogether, there are seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and five reception rooms, and the property itself is nestled comfortably in Aubrey Walk.
This location is one of the most popular neighborhoods in the area, making the home highly sought after.
The primary bedroom encompasses the whole top floor, and you can easily enjoy a variety of perks. These include a large sitting room, a bathroom, a spacious dressing room, and a convenient way to go directly to the roof terrace. Outside, you can enjoy the beautiful views of the London sunset with views facing due south.
Uniquely, the property is actually a combination of two terraced homes. It was designed by William Krisel and featured in Look Magazine on an issue in 1962. In addition, the home is just walking distance away from Holland Park and Notting Hill Gate.
Nearby, you’ll find plenty of charming boutiques, plenty of good food to discover, and much more. There are other notable features of the home that prospective buyers will appreciate. The use of warm color schemes and a contemporary fireplace make you feel right at home in the living room. A white tray ceiling is an excellent complement.
