Marc Bolan's Last Home



Marc Bolan's Last Home

The legend that was T.Rex's Marc Bolan once lived here

Location: Off Upper Richmond Road

Description: Marc's last home.

He bought this big Victorian house in September 1976. It was conveniently situated not far from his parents' house in Putney, but, according to Mark Paytress, the property, with high ceilings & wooden floors, never really acquired any traditional sense of domesticity.

Marc would often conduct his business lying on his large bed, surrounded by racks of stage clothes & unpacked boxes, as bemused workmen continued their renovations around him.

Marc Bolan and his girlfriend Gloria Jones were heading to this address on the fateful night of his death and were exactly 0.9 Miles from home.
