The five-bedroom Ronnie Wood’s folly has an 80ft tower that functioned as a watchtower during World War Two.
Ronnie Wood’s former fairy-tale home is on the rental market.
The Rolling Stones rocker lived at Ruxley Tower in Claygate, Surrey with his then girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova, before meeting his third wife Sally Humphreys.
Present owner Penny Rainbow revamped the property after the musician moved out. Let’s just say his party lifestyle had taken its toll.
She put it up for sale last year for £2.25 million but with no sale has decided to rent to a tenant who will pay £6,500 a month for the five-bedroom folly.
The property’s graceful 80ft tower functioned as a watchtower during World War Two.
Today it features two spacious private terraces with panoramic views of the Surrey countryside.
It is available to rent through Jackson-Stops and Knight Frank.
Ronnie Wood’s rare and popular artworks will be displayed at Castle Fine Art in the Grosvenor Shopping Centre from now until Sunday, June 24.
According with Chesterchronicle – Fans of The Rolling Stones will be able to get their hands on a piece of rock and roll history from this weekend, when a selection of Ronnie Wood’s rare and popular artworks will be exhibited at a Chester gallery.
Works taken from the music legend’s archive will be displayed at Castle Fine Art in the Grosvenor Shopping Centre from now until Sunday, June 24.
New mixed media works, unique hand-embellished editions and original drawings and paintings by the artist will also be on display.
The icons depicted are handpicked from Ronnie’s own inner sanctum of close friends, musical idols and mentors and each have been personally signed by Ronnie himself.
Ronnie’s creative brilliance has had a profound influence on popular culture, not only through his music, but through his lesser-known talent as an artist.
Before beginning his musical career he received formal art training at Ealing College of Art and, throughout the years, the artist and the musician have been inseparable.
It is as natural to find him with a pencil as with a guitar – as he claims: “There is no kind of therapy like the one you have from starting a picture and then seeing it through to the end.”
Frances Broughton, gallery director at Castle Fine Art, Chester, said: “Ronnie’s art is continuously admired and sought after, so we can’t wait to welcome visitors to view the work for themselves.
Ronnie Wood has just released his brand new book titled ‘Ronnie Wood: Artist’, the first comprehensive collection of his paintings and other artworks, created to mark the occasion of his seventieth birthday.
According with Rollingstones.com, the book brimming with six decades of memorable and diverse work, from his art college portfolio (he studied alongside Pete Townshend) to the intimate work of his personal life today and Ronnie gives his own insight on the motivation behind each piece.
