Buying a flat with this kind of celebrity status comes at a price and the single flat in the Victorian mansion block is going for a jaw-dropping £1.65 million.

Reggae legend Bob Marley’s home has gone on sale for an astonishing £1.65million – and you can have a peek inside.

Rental firm Dexters has posted a new listing to a lovely flat in Bloomsbury, London and it comes with the star-studded selling point.

Viewers have gone wild over the housing block that used to be home to the one and only Bob Marley back in the 1970s.

One of the flats in the block was the very first place in London that Bob Marley lived in when he moved here in 1972.

There is even a plaque in ode to the reggae singer, that was added to the building in 2006 for Black History Month.

Viewers have gone wild over the housing block that used to be home to the one and only Bob Marley back in the 1970s.

Surrounding the housing block is a huge communal garden, alive with trees and greenery. Alison Batrick at the Dexters Marylebone office says the apartment is a “highly desirable home”.

A plaque marks a house in Oakley Street, Chelsea, where Marley lived in 1977.

While living there he and the Wailers finished recording Exodus which included some of his biggest hits, including ‘Jamming’, ‘Waiting in Vain’, ‘Three Little Birds’ and ‘One Love’.

Marley is said to have regarded London “as a second base,” and played football with bandmates at Battersea Park.

He also lived in a penthouse apartment in the former Sarm Studios in Notting Hill.

The property which was attracted a host of music stars once saw Band Aid, Bob Marley, Queen and Madonna create hit records within its walls.

The former 17th century converted chapel was used as a recording studio in the 1980s, before it was converted into luxury flats in 2018.

London housing prices can be extortionate at the best of times but when they have a famous name attached to them, prices spiral.

But potential buyers have had mixed reactions to the cost of the property

One commenter on Twitter said that the £1.65 million price tag was far too steep, calling it “ridiculous”.

The property website said the flat boasts a light room with plenty of wide window.

But some posters on the social media site weren’t impressed.

“Much too white!” one angry commenter added.
