Kinfauns


Kinfauns was George Harrison's and his wife Pattie Boyd's house from 1964 till 1970.  George bought the house in for £20,000 on 17 July 1964.  He and Pattie painted the outside house themselves in 1967 and when their friends would come over they'd add to the paintings.  One day when George and Pattie were out Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithful came over and wrote on the the wall " Mick and Marianne were here."  The Beatles hung out at Kinfauns the most and recorded the tapes for the white album.  In 1970  George and Pattie moved out and sold the house.  The new owners painted over all the psychedelic murals.  And Eventually the house was demolished and a two story house was built.   Out of all the Beatles houses this is the most far out and original.

I always thought George was the cutest Beatle.
