ENTWISTLE HOME STILL UP FOR SALE
10:30 - 08 July 2004
The family of late Who bassist John Entwistle is still
trying to sell the rocker's vast Cotswold mansion a
year after it went on the market. Entwistle's mother
Queenie, 80, son Chris, 31, and partner Lisa
Pritchett-Johnson, 46, had hoped to sell Quarwood, at
Stow-on-the-Wold, last Christmas to pay death duties.
London auction house Sotheby's, which was marketing
Quarwood for offers in excess of £4 million, has
passed the sale to Hamptons International.
Hamptons knocked £250,000 off the original asking
price for the 55-room pile, Entwistle's home until his
death in Las Vegas two years ago.
Hamptons' country house director Stephen Perks said:
"They are not 'desperate' to sell but they are keen to
find a buyer."
Paul Taylor, from Sotheby's, who was marketing the
mansion, said: "Last year the country house market was
quite quiet, and it's a difficult house to sell - it
needs work and will only suit some people."
In the 42-acre grounds are seven cottages, four of
which are included in the sale of the main building,
which boasts a big bar, jacuzzi and views of the
scenic Cotswold countryside.
Chris Entwistle said: "Quarwood was always Dad's place
but now he is no longer here it's just not the same."
