Singer Björk has sold her home overlooking the Hudson River in New York for £1.7 million. 

The Icelandic star bought the four-bedroom, 18th-century pile in 2002 for £1.12 million.

It was originally built from local stone as a small fortification in the days of Founding Father and first US President George Washington, to guard the Hudson against the British. Rebuilt in the Twenties, the house spans 3,000 sq ft and retains some elegant historic features.


Bjork is not waving goodbye to New York, however. She still owns a four-bedroom penthouse in Brooklyn Heights, which she bought in 2009 for £3.4 million.
