Sir Mick Jagger has just bought a 10 million Chelsea mansion overlooking the River Thames from Knight Frank for him and his 6"4' girlfriend L'Wren Scott, with a history which dates back centuries. At least one of it's previous owners also had a knighthood, Sir Marc Isambard Brunel (1769-1849) and his next door neighbour is Lord & Lady Guinness. Mick has fond memories of this very house from the late sixties even though it dates back to 1674. It was built on the site of Sir Thomas More's farm. Mick had previously bought no. 48 Cheyne Walk for 50,000 in the very same month as Keith Richards bought No.3 Cheyne Walk in May 1968. Mick hired designer Christopher Gibbs to redecorate it. He turned it into a oroccan bazaar During the course of his work, Gibbs also came up with the title for the Stones' next album, Beggars Banquet. Amazingly, Gibbs also designed No.98 and Gibbs himself lived at No.100. Mick pad at No.48 was busted by the Chelsea Drugs Squad in an infamous raid in 1969. Mick lived there with Marianne Faithfull and then wife Bianca. Richards sold 3 Cheyne Walk in 1978 - the same year that Jagger sold no. 48. Originally part of Lindsay House, built in 1645, Gibbsapartment (No. 100 Cheyne Walk) was the epicentre of London bohemian Chelsea set during the 1960s. Jagger and Paul McCartney were regular visitors here alongside poets and mystics, artists and musicians, courtesans, hustlers and hangers-on.Director Michaelangelo Antonioni used Gibbshouse as the setting for the famous party scene in his Sixties thriller, Blow-Up.

Have I got neighbours....
Looks like Sir Mick Jagger, 65 and his girlfriend L'Wren Scott have finally been granted the planning permission they have been longing for after a battle they lost with neighbours over a 28ft by 12ft swimming pool. It would have meant chopping down four magnolia trees but Mick has now agreed to move the pool to another part of the garden, and will be housed in a building resembling a Georgian orangery, its roof supported by neoclassical pillars decorated with Roman-style engravings. The house dates back to 1674 and was built on the site of Sir Thomas More's farm. Work on the 10 million Grade II listed building in Chelsea is in full swing and it is rumoured it will cost a similar amount to update. Sir Mick has ripped out the interior of the mansion and it looks like they are putting a lift in. It also looks like the height of the building has been heightened - maybe Sir Mick and L'Wren are even planning their own large patter of tiny feet? According to planning documents submitted to Kensington and Chelsea Council by architect Simon Hurst, a specialist in the redesign of historic buildings, the basement will be turned into a cavernous wine cellar, staff kitchen, study and playroom, with the couple's living space on the first and second floors featuring "new built-in furniture without backs" instead of free-standing tables and chairs. The third floor will have a nanny's room and five more bedrooms. There will also be spacious staff accomodation. Although Sir Mick, who is worth about 215million, probably doesn't need to worry about fuel bills, he does appear keen to display his "green" credentials. All the water used in the house will be heated by solar panels on the roof.
