George Harrison’s Swiss Mansion For Sale

George Harrison's Swiss Estate
Ronny Waleska, Wetag Consulting

The taxman may have been taking 95% of George Harrison‘s earnings at one point in time, but that didn’t stop the Quiet Beatle from amassing enough money to purchase a gorgeous Swiss estate in 2001, which Radar is reporting has recently hit the market over 10 years after Harrison’s death.

The truly sad thing about this story is that Harrison bought the house in July 2001 (he was receiving treatment for cancer at a nearby facility), and died a mere four months later at his home in Los Angeles, meaning that Harrison himself had precious little time to enjoy what has to be a breathtaking view of the Swiss Alps. Harrison bought the property for $10 million at the time, but Wetag Consulting, who’s handling the sale, is only revealing the asking price “upon request,” which is a polite way of saying that if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.

The Radar article also mentions that along with the Swiss mansion, Harrison had houses in England, Los Angeles, Hawaii, and Australia. Lots of musicians spend their money foolishly (most of them, really), but that sentence alone proves that Harrison clearly had perspective. It was always summer at one of his homes; that is how to live, people.
