George Michael’s mansion doubles in price and sells for eye-watering £19million

George's Michael's former home has been sold four years after the singer passed away.

The property in Highgate, North London was the main residence of the hitmaker from 2002 until his death on Christmas Day in 2016.

Following his death, the stunning home was left to George's father, Kyriacos Panayiotou.

The Grade II listed home had previously been let out by an A-List letting agency for a staggering £15,000 per week.

However, records now show that the townhouse has been sold for £19 million – despite George splashing out £7,650,000 back when he purchased the house in 2002.

George died aged 53 on Christmas Day, 2016, at his home in Goring-on-Thames, with a coroner ruling his cause of death as natural causes.

With areas such as nearby Primrose Hill and a back gate leading onto Hampstead Heath, it comes as no surprise that the pair have snapped up the house.

Following George's death in 2016, fans of the Wham! fans created a shrine of floral tributes outside the home which was later removed in 2018.

It was recently revealed that a mural of George had been unveiled close to the Highgate property.

The 9ft painting was commissioned in connection with Brent Biennial, which was created to celebrate the borough being named London Borough of Culture for 2020.

It's believed that the artwork, which shows George blowdrying his hair backstage at a Wham! concert in 1985, will be a permanent feature.

The house boasts supermodel Kate Moss as a neighbour is now registered to Stephen Cameron and Clare Susan Harrison.

Speaking about their neighbouring properties, Kate told BBC 6 Music: "He's got a pool, so when it's hot I'm like, 'Can Lila come and jump in your pool?' And he's like, 'Yeah, come over.'

"We can actually climb from garden to garden over the walls with a ladder."

Previous occupants include singer Annie Lennox.
