The spectacular seaside view that John Lennon and his Aunt Mimi fell in love with in the swinging sixties is up for sale -  but you would have to be a rock star to afford the £4.5million price tag.<br />
<br />
A house on a plot of land that tragic Beatle John Lennon bought for his beloved Aunt Mimi at the height of his fame has been put on the market for £4.5 million.<br />
<br />
Lennon forked out £26,500 for a bungalow on the plot on the exclusive Sandbanks peninsula in Poole Harbour in 1965 so that Mimi Smith, the auntie who raised him, could retire there.<br />
<br />
Mimi died aged 85 in December 1991 and her humble home, which had fallen into disrepair, was bulldozed by property tycoon Geoff Kaye after he paid £410,000 for the site the following year.<br />
<br />
After living there for 21 years, Mr Kaye and his wife are selling up, giving Beatles fans a chance to own their own slice of rock 'n' roll history - but with a staggering £4.5 million price tag, prospective buyers will have to have deep pockets.
