English rockstar Rod Stewart has just listed his UK property for $9.9 million. The available home has a history of its own as the property where Winston Churchill lived and holed up during the Blitz in 1940 and 1941.

The iconic rock star’s home is located in the town of Epping in the County of Essex just about an hour’s drive northeast of Buckingham Palace. Stewart purchased the 24.8-acre estate in the mid-1980s, and the plot is home to a restored and luxurious three-story mansion.

Known as Wood House, the manse spans 10,119 square feet with six ensuite bedrooms, six full bathrooms, five half baths, and at least a dozen fireplaces. Of course, the master suite is luxe too with a large dressing room and fireplace of its own.

Additional features include a grand reception hall with a 45-foot carved wood staircase, a 30-foot long drawing room complete with plaster friezes and a stone fireplace, and a paneled dining room with gold-leafed ceiling detail.

The luxurious estate is also home to several outbuildings like a four-car detached garage that’s topped with a self-contained one-bedroom, one-bath apartment; an 1,871-square-foot Tudor-style guest home; a small pool house and an all-glass summer house located near the heated outdoor pool; several barns; and a gym with a changing room.

There’s also a walled rose garden with a fountain and topiary, expansive lush meadows, a tennis court, and a full-sized soccer pitch.

Now in his early 70s, the singer is still rocking out and just released his 29th studio album, “Another Country,” last October.
