The former London mansion of singer and actress Rihanna is on sale for £32m ($41m).

The price tag of the gated double-fronted detached eight bedroom house includes all the furniture and contents pictured and is dressed just as it was when Rihanna lived there for 2.5 years.

“This magnificent house on St John’s Wood Park is perfect for a music, business or political mogul. It is one of the most important houses to come onto the market in the local area in recent years,” said Gary Hersham, founding director of Beauchamp Estates, in a statement sent to Yahoo Finance UK.

“It is an exceptional property with the garden floor and large garden superb for relaxation whilst the reception room on the raised ground floor is wonderful for big parties.”

The large landscaped rear garden is 126 feet deep by 130 feet wide. The house also benefits from already-secured planning permission to build a 16,000 square feet home on the grounds of the mansion.
