Pink Floyd’s former North London home sells for £1.2 million

The former north London home of the original band members of Pink Floyd has been bought by a Singaporean developer.

BBC reports Sham Masterman, who admitted not being a big fan of the band, bought the Highgate house and the one next door for £1.2m each. The properties were made available via a Savills auction last Thursday.

Roger Waters, Nick Mason, Richard Wright and Syd Barrett lived in the house in the 1960s.

The house was owned by Pink Floyd lighting technician Mike Leonard, who passed away earlier this year.

Miss Masterman, of Kensington, west London, said that she had a friend who was a Pink Floyd fan and may be interested in the odd item of memorabilia.

"I'll maybe put some of the stuff on eBay," she said.

For a closer look inside the house, see the BBC video here.
