Fri 08 Mar 2013
You may not know the name immediately but the haunting theme of the Penguin Cafs "Music for a Found Harmonium" has been used in many adverts and is a familiar tune.
It was composed by Simon Jeffes who named the song after he found an abandoned harmonium on the streets of Kyoto, Japan. He died 16 years ago and now his son Arthur carries the torch for the band and is selling the contemporary London house where the band wrote and recorded its songs.The two storey house has one bedroom and bathroom on the first floor, an eat in kitchen on the second floor and a reception room on the ground.
"A small but perfectly formed example of stylish modern architecture to suit someone seeking individuality," said selling agent David Pittman of Marsh & Parsons. "Located in one of Holland Parks more bohemian enclaves and close to the famous Julies restaurant, the house was a recording studio and all round centre for creativity."
Marsh & Parsons are inviting bids of 1.1million for 2 Hippodrome Place.
