A Surrey mansion that was owned by John Lennon during the 1960s has gone on the market for £15m.

The ex-Beatle lived at Kenwood mansion in the St George's Hill area of Weybridge in the mid to late 1960s.

The musician is believed to have penned a number of songs for the classic Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album at the 1.5 acre property.

Estate agent Knight Frank is handling the sale of the 1920s mansion which has six bedrooms and an indoor pool.

The property is described as a "luxuriously finished family home, formerly owned by John Lennon, set in about 1.5 acres of exquisite gardens".

The description continues: "An original 1920's Tarrant house, Kenwood is situated at the heart of the exclusive St George's Hill Estate, acknowledged as one of the UK's premier private residential addresses.

"The house occupies a superb plateau position set around St George's Hill's renowned golf course, tennis club and leisure amenities. Kenwood overlooks magnificent landscaped gardens and grounds and enjoys uninterrupted views of the Surrey Hills."

Kenwood also features in home movies that formed part of the 1988 documentary Imagine: John Lennon.
