Iron Maiden's Steve Harris puts house up for sale for £7 million – see pics
Iron Maiden's Steve Harris has put his house up for sale. And it could be yours for a cool £7 million.

The mansion in Essex comes with an indoor swimming pool, tennis court, full-sized football pitch and its own pub, called the Horse And Cart.

Priced at £6.75million, parts of the mansion in Sheering, near Harlow, date back to 1427 and records of a property on the site is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The Iron Maiden co-founder's house is described in the estate agent's listing as "an outstanding country house in a highly sought-after area".

Among other facilities are an arcade games lounge, music studio, media room and carp pond, while the wood-panelled rooms must remain due to the house's grade II listed status.

Harris founded Iron Maiden in east London in 1975. They've since released 15 albums and sold 85 million records. Harris released his debut solo album last year, 'British Lion', and remains the original member of Iron Maiden in the current line-up. Harris is said to be selling the house because he spends so much time abroad, while a spokesperson said it was a not a "run-of-the-mill" house.

He told the Daily Mail: "He now lives between Los Angeles and the Bahamas so doesn't use it as much as he did. The children have grown up and left so he feels it's the right time to sell. He's owned it for 25 to 28 years I think, so it obviously means a lot to him.

"It's a great position near the M11, Stansted Airport and Heathrow is only 55 minutes round the M25 and the house has got lots of toys: an indoor heated swimming pool, football pitch and your own pub. People should remember that it is grade II listed and therefore they should get advice before they consider buying it."

Take a look at the house below.
