The Surrey mansion where John Lennon wrote the songs for The Beatles’ 1967 album 'Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band' is up for sale.

The six-bedroom property in Weybridge, Surrey, where Lennon lived between 1964 and 1968 is on the market for £14 million, The Times reports.

Lennon bought the property, known as Kenwood, for £20,000 on July 15, 1964 and lived there with his first wife Cynthia. He is believed to have penned a number of songs for the album, which features classic tracks 'With A Little Help From My Friends' and 'A Day In The Life', while living there.

Clips of a home movie showing Lennon at Kenwood in 1967 were used in the 1988 film Imagine: John Lennon.

The house, which has been refurbished, has six reception rooms, six bathrooms, 1.5 acres of land and a swimming pool. It is close to Sunny Heights – Ringo Starr's former home and Kinfauns, where George Harrison lived in Esher.
