These don’t come and go very often! Culture Club star Boy George puts his Grade II-listed Hampstead Heath mega-mansion which boasts a party room and Buddhist meditation tower on sale for jaw-dropping £17m

Boy George‘s Grade II-listed Hampstead Heath mega-mansion, which boasts a skylight ceiling in the bathroom and a Buddhist meditation tower, has gone on sale for a staggering £17million. 

The Culture Club star – who featured on the latest series of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here – is bidding farewell to the Gothic Italianate mansion in leafy North London.

The jaw-dropping five-bedroom home recently featured on an episode of the new Channel 4 series Selling Super Houses, which sees eight aspiring estate agents compete for the ‘job of a lifetime’ as they try to sell amazing properties.  

Originally known as The Logs, it was built for £9,000 – which is equivalent to £1.3million today – for engineer and developer Edward Gotto in 1868.

It features triple-height ceilings, a beautiful grand staircase and stained glass windows.
