A Highgate house that formed a backdrop for an iconic Beatles photo shoot is on the market.

The Fab Four were pictured sitting outside the house in N6 in 1968, when they were working on The White Album, and many fans would recognise the striking image from the Mad Day Out publicity session.

St James’s Villa, in Swains Lane, on the fringes of Highgate Cemetery and Waterlow Park, was built in the 1880s. Converted in the Seventies by renowned modernist architect John Winter, it was further extended in 2001.

With double-height spaces and full of natural light, the loveliest part of the three-bedroom home is the mezzanine level, with a library and an adjacent kitchen that has a glazed sliding door to a terrace overlooking the trees.
