Outside there is an old-fashioned red telephone box, floodlit tennis court and a full-sized football pitch with home and away changing rooms. …

Iron Maiden bassist puts his £7m mansion on the market complete with garish murals of busty women and its own pub
Taxation strikes again, I would say. It can’t just be that Harris is out of the country a lot.

You’re probably right.

And I love the look of the place, in general. Lots of pictures at the link, folks, but they’re short on pics of the garish murals of busty women. In the interests of saving other FReepers a click and scrolling, I checked.

Wow, that is cool!

(I think I saw it in an episode of “Midsomer Murders,” too.)

Interesting place, although it doesn’t seem to have a driveway of any kind nor any landscaping out front.

The article says there was a property at that site in the Doomsday Book. You’d think a British publication would know that’s “Domesday.”

Maiden is on the road a lot. And most of his kids are grown. One thing you know for sure is this is a solid business decision, one of the reasons Maiden is so successful is off stage it’s a pure business with cost analysis and audience demographic research. Interviews with him are very interesting.
