The estate of legendary Queen frontman Freddie Mercury has been put up for sale. It was done by the current owner, and the love of the performer's life, Mary Austin.

The residence, named Garden Lodge, is located in London, off Cromwell Road in the heart of the elite Kensington. It is a completely private area that is set back from roads and protected by an Edwardian brick wall.

There is an even higher fence surrounded by surveillance cameras. The real estate is planned to be sold for $38 million.

For more than 30 years, the estate has been owned by Mary Austin, who received most of the executor's inheritance. After Freddie Mercury's death in 1991, she lived and cared for the place.

As the 72-year-old woman recalls, this house has always belonged to a musician. She just worked on the exterior of this building, because it was "his dream, it was his vision."

Mercury was looking for a place where he could quietly create, relax and enjoy life, as far away from prying eyes as possible. This was especially true of media representatives.

“It was a summer's day, the children were playing in the garden, and I was behind Freddie when we went in. It was so quiet and so peaceful, and it was all over the house,” Mary Austin recalls. On the same day, the musician decided to buy a house.
