Eric Clapton Sells Dreamy South of France Estate
VIDEO: See where one of the world's most famous rockers has been hiding out
British rocker Eric Clapton has been gifting the world with harmony-filled hits like "Layla," "I Shot the Sheriff," and "Tears in Heaven" for the past four decades. When not touring the world, however, the 70-year-old has called this serene Provence manor his home away from home since 2001. After years of happy ownership, Clapton and his family have put their French estate on the market for $3.22 million.
The bucolic grounds include rolling lawns, a heated swimming pool, a tennis court, a boules pitch, and a lavender field, while the main house is made up of ten bedrooms, nine bathrooms and airy, vaulted common spaces. There's even a spacious, two-bedroom annex that can house visiting family and friends. Outside of the private enclave, the quiet, nearby village allows the rockstar to shop the market and enjoy the cafés with his family without being bothered.
Clapton has decided to sell the home because he's been too busy to spend much time in the French countryside, despite its proximity to the U.K. As the guitar genius continues to produce music and tour far and wide, we can only imagine where he'll put down his creative roots next.
