In February 1964 John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr traveled to the United States for the first time. These four men known as the Beatles were beginning a musical career that would make history.
Years after the disappearance of this band, they still have fans all over the world and that is why for sure many will want to rent the mansion in Bel Air, California, where the British stayed during that first trip.
It was recently reported that the property had entered the real estate market as a rental. Those interested must also be able to pay $42,000 dollars a month.
According to ‘Los Angeles Times’, the band paid $1,000 for the four days they were in the residence. It is said that the British had to stay in that place because the hotel where they had initially booked cancelled.
At that time the mansion belonged to the actor Reginald Owen, who was very popular for having been part of the cast of ‘Mary Poppins’ (1964). After the death of the actor, it was bought by the family that currently still owns the place.
The mansion was built in the 1920s but is in perfect condition thanks to the maintenance and remodeling that has been done in recent years.
The Mediterranean-style house is spread over two floors and has six rooms, a hall, a living room, a main room, a dining room, a kitchen, a laundry room and other amenities. Inside are hardwood floors, arched doorways, exposed wood beams, multiple fireplaces, and a remodeled office.
Outside there are extensive green areas with a terrace, swimming pool, spa area, various fountains, dining room and other spaces where the band enjoyed several decades ago.
