We are selling... we are selling! Rod Stewart and wife Penny Lancaster put £40,000 of lavish furniture and fittings up for auction as they look to downsize from £4.65m Essex mansion

  • Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster are having a sale from their Essex mansion
  • Music legend Rod is getting rid of lavish sofas, candelabras and armchairs   
  • Sixty items are expected to fetch around £40,000 at auction on September 11

Leopard print cushions and gold candelabras are just some of the lavish items being sold in a house clearance sale in Essex - but they haven't had just any old owner.

The eye-catching cushioned chairs, sofas and furnishings come from the Epping Forest mansion of music legend Sir Rod Stewart.

Penny Lancaster and her husband are selling items from the stunning £4.65million Durrington House near Epping Forest, which they bought in 2013. 

Sir Rod is selling over 60 items, including eye-catching settees, armchairs and furniture, tipped to sell for more than £40,000.

The star is believed to be having a clear out of the property, which he is looking to sell, so he can purchase another home elsewhere in an attempt to downsize.

Grade II-listed Durrington House in Sheering, Essex, on the edge of Epping Forest, is Scottish rock star Rod Stewart's latest country home

This pair of gilt bronze-mounted side tables are estimated to be worth around £3,000 and were owned by Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster 

A matching pair of mirrors are also expected to fetch around £3,000 when they are sold as part of a sixty piece collection 

Sir Rod is renowned for his bold fashion style and his decor choices are similarly striking with lots of gold and leather patterns.

A pair of gilt bronze mounted side tables with glass tops are valued at £3,000, while a pair of 7ft pier mirrors carry the same estimate.

A teak lounge armchair with a faux leopard print cushion is tipped to sell for £250.

Two 19th century carved giltwood brackets with cherub mounts are valued for £1,800.

A Louis XV-style settee with light blue fabric upholstery could fetch £800.

Two 19th century gilt bronze candelabra featuring a boar, a lion and a dog are tipped to sell for £2,000, while a pair of Victorian crimson leather armchairs are valued at £600.

A set of four gilt bronze two-branch wall lights carry an estimate of £1,200.

The collection is from the mansion owned by Rod and Penny which they renovated extensively before moving in.

Its bedrooms date back to 1712 and overlook a lake set in 46 acres of pastures and ancient woodland.

The property has a swimming pool, four self-contained cottages, croquet lawn and walled garden - and a football pitch.

Rod had a full-sized football pitch in the back garden of his previous home, Wood House - put on the market for £7.5million - just a few miles from his Sheering home.

Wall brackets are also making up part of the collection. The cherub decorated golden pair will fetch around £1,800 it is believed 

Dolphin arm chairs could fetch at least £800 when they are sold at auction - according to auctioneers selling Rod Stewart's furniture 

Lavish candelabras from Rod Stewart's home could soon be in your living room as the singer and his wife Penny Lancaster have a sale - if you have £2000 to spare

A Louis XV style settee is also being sold. The luxury seating will be sold off for around £800

The collection is being sold by auction house Sworders, of Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex.

Sworders director John Black said: “We all have a good out sort out once in a while and that is the case with Sir Rod Stewart in this instance.

“He has accumulated many things over his lifetime and has decided now is the time to have a bit of a clear out.

“He lives locally to us and we are selling items of his including settees, lighting and furniture.

“The items are all very glitzy and glamorous and there is lots of gold - all very rock and roll.”

Grade II listed Durrington House, which dates from 1712, has 10 bedrooms and overlooks a lake set in 46 acres of pastures and woodland.

The sale takes place on September 11.

A set of four gilt bronze two-branch wall lights are included in the auction and will be selling for around £1,200

A pair of Victorian crimson leather armchairs have been plucked from the multi-million pound estate of Rod Stewart and put up for auction

Rod Stewart, Cyndi Lauper concert in Kansas City rescheduled

 
 
 
KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Tuesday night's concert with Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper at the Sprint Center has been rescheduled until Oct. 16. 

Stewart said the postponement happened due to him being sick. 

“Gutted that strep throat has left me unable to perform this week in Kansas City and the Twin Cities," he said. "Thanks to the fans and promoters for their support and swift rescheduling — I look forward to seeing you in October.”

All original tickets will be honored. Refunds are available for those who cannot attend the new date.

The Maggie May singer, who was knighted at Buckingham Palace in October 2016, is selling property locally in Essex and, in need of a good old fashioned sort out, approached the Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers in Stansted Mountfitchet with his collection of antique and decorative furnishings.

Rod and his wife Penny Lancaster have been trying to sell their former home in Essex – complete with full-size football pitch, swimming pool, tennis courts and boating lake – for two years. They have shaved £1.5m off the asking price to £5m, but have no takers yet.

With estimates in the collection ranging from £60-£3,000, fans of the artist, who releases his 30th studio album “Blood Red Roses” on the 28 September, could now be in with a chance to own their very own piece of rock star memorabilia.

The collection of over 60 lots includes a pair of gilt bronze-mounted side tables, estimated at £2,000-3,000, a teak lounge armchair, with a cane back and a faux leopard print cushion, estimated at £250-£350, a pair of late 19th century pier mirrors, estimated at £2,000-£3,000 and a set of four gilt bronze two-branch wall lights, estimated at £800-£1,200.

Rod Stewart says he doesn’t take his job for granted

With his critically acclaimed summer tour with Cyndi Lauper and the September 28th release his 30th studio album, titled Blood Red Roses, Rod Stewart would be hard pressed to start thinking about retirement now. During a new chat with The Associated Press, Rod Stewart spoke about his career today, with the 73-year-old rocker asking himself: “How long can I go on? That’s the million-dollar question. I enjoy it. I get excited by it. And as long as that exists, I think I can carry on for another three weeks (laughter). I never, ever take it for granted, I really don’t. It’s just the best job in the world — I know that’s an old cliche, but it really is. (Donald) Trump thinks he’s got a good job — I’ve really got a great job (laughs).”

Did you know?

Throughout his career, Rod Stewart has only earned one Grammy Award. In 2005 he snagged the prize for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for the previous year’s standards collection, Stardust. . .  The Great American Songbook Volume III.

Rod is part of the rare club of twice-inducted members of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Back in 2004 he was voted in as a solo act and again in 2012 as the frontman of the Faces.

Although not primarily recognized as a songwriter, Rod Stewart co-wrote many of his most timeless and enduring hits, including “Maggie May,” “Gasoline Alley,” “Every Picture Tells A Story,” “Stay With Me,” “You Wear It Well,” “Mandolin Wind,” “You’re In My Heart (The Final Acclaim),” “Hot Legs,” “Tonight’s The Night (Gonna Be Alright),” “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?,” “Passion,” “Tonight I’m Yours (Don’t Hurt Me),” “Young Turks,” “Infatuation,” “Every Beat Of My Heart,” and “Forever Young,” among others.

Rod Stewart could reunite with Jeff Beck Group

Rod Stewart would like to see egos put aside to get the Jeff Beck Group back together.

Rod Stewart insists it isn't ''too late'' for the Jeff Beck Group to reform.

The 73-year-old singer was an original member of the band, which also featured guitarist Jeff Beck, Ronnie Wood on rhythm guitars and various drummers and bassists, until they split after two years in 1969 and he'd like to see them put their differences aside and go out on the road again.

He said: ''I'm still in contact with Ron. He sends me videos of his kids.

''But with Jeff, we did try and get together again. I still don't think it's too late for us to shrink our egos a little bit and do it.''

Rod and Ronnie went on to team up with Small Faces members Ian McLagan, Ronnie Lane and Kenney Jones to form The Faces and though both Ian and Ronnie Lane have passed away, the 'Maggie May' hitmaker would love to get back on the road with drummer Kenney and the Rolling Stones guitarist if their schedules will allow it.

Asked if he's still in touch with Kenney, Rod told Uncut magazine: ''I might invite him over for Christmas once or twice if we're having a party at the house but we don't keep in touch like me and Ron do.

''There's always a chance of the Faces getting back together.

''Just every time I'm about to start a tour, the Stones are going to start a tour, then I start and they star. We can't go on forever. But I said that 20 years ago.''

Rod and Ronnie initially bonded over their big noses and love of fashion.

Rod recalled: ''We introduced each other. I said, ''Ello Nose' and he said, ''Ello Nose'. We both had big noses.

''I think what brought us together was our sense of clothing - we both liked style - and our unique sense of humour.

''That's bonded us together over the years. I don't see so much of him now, of course.''

More than 50 years into career, Rod Stewart not slowing down

NEW YORK (AP) - More than fifty years into his career, Rod Stewart shows no sign of slowing down.

When he's not on tour, he's busy at home chasing his two young sons, Aiden and Alastair, around the yard. And on Sept. 28, he will release his 30th studio album, "Blood Red Roses."

While known for writing sultry songs - from "Tonight's the Night (Gonna Be Alright)" to "You're In My Heart (The Final Acclaim)" - Stewart's also not afraid to tackle social issues. In 1976, he broke new ground with "The Killing of Georgie (Part I and II)," about his friend who was killed because of his sexual identity.

Stewart dismisses the idea of being courageous writing the first mainstream pop song to deal with gay bashing.

"It was a true story and it's much easier to write about the truth," Stewart said about the iconic song.

The 73-year old crooner gets serious again with his new album's first single, "Didn't I," which deals with teenage substance abuse from the parent's perspective.

In an interview with The Associated Press this week, the Grammy-winning singer discussed his longevity in the music business, what he thinks of the #MeToo movement and maintaining his signature hairstyle.

_____

AP: That hair is just amazing. How do you keep it up?

Stewart: It's pretty good, isn't it? I don't know. I think I've just been lucky, you know, with the hair. It gets a lot of manipulation, you know, because I always have to keep it (up). When I'm doing a show, I have to go and dry it. ...I cut it every two weeks. No, but other than that I just think I'm lucky.

_____

AP: You move pretty well onstage for a guy in his seventies...

Stewart: Soccer has always been a passion of mine. You know, I played it, read about it, watched it all my life, and I still play a little bit. And I do work out a lot, I must admit. And that keeps me fit for onstage. How long can I go on? That's the million-dollar question. You know, I enjoy it. I get excited about it, and as long as that exists, I think I can carry on for another three weeks (laughs).

_____

AP: Your two sons were onstage with you at your Madison Square Garden show this week. Do you always take them on the road?

Stewart: They don't come on the stage every night. Only when they're on tour (with me in the summer). And they pester me. The older one is getting a bit too old for it now. But the young one loves it. You know, he loves it. But having younger kids, I've got eight kids all together, certainly does keep you on your toes, and they, especially the youngest one, he's just so cute. He amuses me all day long. It makes me smile. And that's longevity in itself, I think being able to smile all day.

_____

AP: You've always been a fan of the ladies, do you consider yourself a.

Stewart: Sex symbol? Now I hate that word. ..I never purposely went out to attract the opposite sex. I mean, it just comes with the music, you know, the music is very sensuous and vibrant. So, if I do something suggestive onstage it's merely by accident.

_____

AP: "The Killing of Georgie" was bold for its time. Do you feel it helped change attitudes in some small way?

Stewart: Yeah, yeah, you're right. It was actually banned by the BBC when it first came out. But the most interesting thing about "Georgie" is I bump into a lot of people, gay men who say, "You know when 'The Killing of Georgie' came out, it really helped me through my breaking out and feeling proud about who I am." And that means a lot to me.

_____

AP: The industry has changed. Is it no longer sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll?

Stewart: Obviously, I'm not, you know, sweet 16 anymore, and there are things I have to preserve, namely my voice. I really have to look after that. So, as I said, I was never really a druggy-type person because I played football and I was always getting up in the morning playing football and so that side hasn't changed a great deal for me.

_____

AP: But things are changing, especially with the #MeToo movement.

Stewart: Well that's true. There were a lot of women throwing themselves at us in the '70s and '80s, and they were good old times, really great times. But, you know, the #MeToo movement is long overdue. But I must admit I've never had trouble, you know, entertaining women. I've always enjoyed the chase, actually. I'd never thrown myself on any woman. You know, I enjoyed romance and then the chase.

_____

AP: Do you ever look back and go, "Wow, what a career?"

Stewart: Every day. Every day. I never take it for granted. I really don't. You know, it's just the best job in the world. I know that's an old cliche, but it really is. (President Donald) Trump thinks he's got a good job. I've really got a great job.

Rod Stewart is currently out on a headlining tour with support from Cyndi Lauper.  While the two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Famer adores hitting the road, he says there's one thing that makes him prefer his Las Vegas residency over a regular nationwide trek: It's much more efficient.

"The only thing I don't like about touring -- and believe me, I do love it -- is the downtime," Sir Rod tells ABC Radio. "It's a hell of a lot of wasted time in traveling and everything like that.  But I wouldn't have it any other way!"

On the plus side, Stewart says when he's visiting different cities, "the songs take on a different meaning, 'cause they get different reactions from the crowd."  When he's in Vegas, he says, "I have a bit of a déjà vu moment, normally -- 'cause I see the same people in the front row."

During his current tour, Rod is performing all his big hits, plus a few new songs from his upcoming album, Blood Red Roses, due out September 28. 

He tells ABC Radio that it can be "really, really difficult" to get his fans enthusiastic about his new material. Describing what it was like singing one new number at his New York City show this week, Rod laughs, "I said, 'Just make [believe] you've listened to "Maggie May" and give it a big round of applause!'"

As for "Maggie," she's in the set list, of course, but Stewart says these days, he most enjoys singing another new song -- a highly emotional ballad called "Grace" -- as well as the blues classic "I'd Rather Go Blind."

"But I love singing all the songs," he insists. "I love being up there.  You can tell!"

Stewart's on tour through October; on November 21, he'll resume his Las Vegas residency.

Continuing our Try It TODAY series, Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb got the chance to be back-up singers for legendary singer and performer Rod Stewart at Madison Square Garden!

Rod Stewart shows off his quirky sense of style in busy print blazer as he reunites with former backing vocalist Becca Kotte at Broadway

They go way back as the rising star previously toured with the rocker.

So of course Rod Stewart was happy to see his ex-background vocalist Becca Kotte on Broadway starring in Gettin' the Band Back Together in New York City on Monday.

The Maggie May hitmaker, 73, threw his arm around the Broadway singer when they were reunited once again backstage.

See you again: Rod Stewart showed off his quirky sense of style in a busy print blazer as he reunited with former backing vocalist Becca Kotte at Broadway on Monday

Recognised for his quirky sense of style, it's no wonder Rod picked out a white jacket with a busy powder blue print of pine cones and flowers dotted all over the number.

The rocker matched the blazer confidently with a floral embroidered shirt worn open, white trousers and a skinny electric blue belt.

Meanwhile, Becca looked incredible in her white dress which had blue and pink carnations printed across the body of the garment. 

Having fun! The musician and his pal showed off their sense of fun as they posed playfully for the cameras backstage

Hello again! The Maggie May hitmaker, 73, threw his arm around the Broadway singer when they were reunited once again backstage

Gettin' the Band Back Together tells the story of businessman Mitch Papadopolous who decides to reunite his old band after he is fired on his 40th birthday.

As the story unfolds, the band have their hearts set on performing in the Battle of the Bands competition but a fierce bar fight which puts their dreams in jeopardy.

Before securing her gig on Broadway, Becca joined forces with Rod as his backing vocalist on his long-running tour Rock of the Ages two years ago in 2016. 

Penny Lancaster: 'Memories of our first home are a lifelong joy that help shape our future'

Why do we place so much importance on actually owning a property? I don’t think it’s the bricks and mortar any of us are after – it’s a home. And anywhere we buy only feels like a home if we are lucky enough to form a strong emotional attachment to the place.

Both Rod and I consider ourselves lucky to have really fond memories of our childhood homes. He’s taken me back to the place where he grew up in Highgate’s Archway Road, where his family home has now been demolished and replaced by a petrol station.

However, he still remembers sitting in his room as a child, looking at the rail tracks that ran behind the terrace houses. It’s these memories, he says, that sparked his love for railway modelling.

Penny Lancaster (pictured with husband Rod Stewart) believes a new house only starts to feels like home 'if we're lucky enough to form a strong emotional attachment to the place'

My experience of going back to my childhood home in Ilford, Essex, was just as sad. It was a beautiful corner property with a lovely tree in the front garden that I used to play under, and in the back garden there was a large fish pond where I spent hours staring into the water, fascinated by the tadpoles and newts. 

The new owners have totally remodelled the house, blocking in windows for an extra downstairs bedroom. 

The tree has vanished and the pond has been filled in. All the charm I remember has gone.

Rod and I have found ourselves affected by the recent property stalemate thanks to Brexit. We can’t sell our old place in Essex, The Woodhouse, despite its unique architecture and strong historical links. 

The hike in stamp duty hasn’t helped – it almost stopped me in my tracks when I recently invested in an apartment just down the road from our new Essex home.

Between us, Rod and I have a big family and it’s a sure sign of a happy childhood that Rod’s children have gravitated back to where they grew up; and it makes me wonder where our boys will live when they’re older.

Rod’s eldest son Sean (he’s 36) frequently hangs out in Malibu, as it’s where he grew up. Ruby (now 31), Rod’s daughter, has this romantic vision that she will one day buy back The Woodhouse, where she enjoyed so many fantastic years. 

I hope Ruby realises her dream: The Woodhouse appears in so many of our memories. Rod and I brought our boys back there as newborns and they spent many happy summers there.

Call me sentimental, but even after they’ve flown the nest, The Woodhouse will always provide their first-home memories and I hope those feelings of comfort and belonging last for ever.

MAGGIE DISMAY 

Sir Rod Stewart reveals regret at selling limited edition supercar now worth around £3MILLION for a knockdown pric                                          

The rocker and Celtic superfan, 73, snapped up the high performance vehicle when they were launched in 2002

SIR Rod Stewart has revealed his regret at flogging a supercar now worth around £3million for a knockdown price.

The rocker and Celtic superfan, 73, snapped up the limited edition Ferrari Enzo — top speed 220mph — when they were launched in 2002.

Rod poses in front of his supercar

The motors’ value rocketed in recent years and Rod admitted he lost out by getting under £1mi­­llion for his five years ago.

The singer, wed to ex-model Penny Lancaster, said: “When I was young I was trying to save up to buy an MG Sprite — they were £450.

“Then I struck it lucky. I got a lovely Marcos. Then a Lamborghini.

“When I married Penny I had a Ferrari Enzo. I sold it. I shouldn’t have — it’s worth a fortune now.”


Rod Stewart releases new single Didn’t I ahead of new album Blood Red Roses’ launch in September


Rod previously revealed he offloaded the car due to unwanted attention from fellow petrolheads whenever he parked it.

He said: “You had to clear frenzied car lovers out of the way to get back in the driving seat.”

Rod Stewart, 73, breaks into the flossing dance on stage with son Aiden, seven, during energetic performance in Nashville

He's a devoted father to his eight children. 

And Rod Stewart showed off his trendy dance moves as he dominated the stage in Nashville with his son Aiden, seven, on Thursday. 

In an Instagram video shared by wife Penny Lancaster, the rock icon, 73, showcased his skills by doing the floss, before Aiden took over with his own impressive moves. 

Showing off! Rod Stewart, 73, proved he's a cool dad as he flossed on stage with son Aiden, seven, during an energetic performance in Nashville on Thursday

Rod looked every inch the musical legend in a sharp white ensemble - embellished with polka dots, palm tree patterns and sparkling shoes. 

The Forever Young artist could barely contain his excitement as he belted out Stay With Me with Aiden by his side, and Rod prompted the youngster to break out into the meme-worthy craze by doing his own floss dance.

Going wild with his dynamic moves, Aidan then lept onto the floor to wow the crowd with his break-dancing skills.

Later on, Rod and Aidan playfully turned the arena into their own football pitch as they enjoyed a quick kick-about on stage with some inflatable footballs.

The fun and frolics on stage come after Rod admitted he plans his whole tour schedule around his eight children. 

In a candid interview with ITV's Lorraine in July, the chart topper revealed: 'I’ve got two youngsters, 8 children altogether. I plan my tours around the kids’ holidays. So this weekend we’re all off to Florida where I start a US tour, during their holidays. That won’t go on forever as they’ll say I don’t want to go tour with dad… '

The Maggie May hit-maker also explained he works out on a regular basis to ensure he's bursting with the energy needed to look after his two youngest children, Alastair, 12, and Aiden.

He explained: 'I do keep myself fit. I’ve always played football, I don’t play so much now. But I do work out a lot, I do believe in it. And lots of water and the odd, occasional glass of wine... and a nice sherry of an evening'. 

The candid interview also saw Rod - who shares Aiden and Alastair with model Penny Lancaster, 47, admit that his eldest children, Kimberly, 38, and Sean, 37, found it particularly difficult to cope with his hectic touring schedule when they were children, which eventually led to 'bad feelings'.

He said: 'The oldest two, Kim and Sean, I was on tour so much they didn’t really see so much of their dad and there was some bad feelings about that. 

'I explained, "Listen, your dad wasn’t out there partying every night, I was working my bum off, because I was in debt to the tune of about $1million." I had to work my way out of debt.' 

Rod also discussed the prospect of retirement, though relieved his fans when he admitted he doesn't plan to call it a day anytime soon.

'Everything has to come to an end eventually,' he said. 'But, the thing is, I enjoy it so much. To get up there on the stage and send people home happy, hopefully, it’s a gift from god, it really is.'    

Get-together: The trip to Nashville became a family affair as Rod and Penny, plus the two boys, visited Rod's daughter Ruby, 3

 

 
 

Rod's rockin' V12 Lamborghini crossing the auction block in London next month

 

 
 
 
 

In the 1960s, the Lamborghini Miura was the definitive supercar.

If you were an A-list celebrity, you had to have it.

Rod Stewart bought this particular Miura P400 S new in 1971 in a right-hand-drive configuration, finished in white and with a black leather interior. This amazing slice of 1960s design is being auctioned off at RM Sotheby’s London auction next month, where it’s expected to sell for around US$1.8 million.

Stewart was one of Lamborghini’s top customers and ordered a new version of each Miura model as they came out — the P400, S, and SV. He owned this car until 1976, and a subsequent owner converted it to the more powerful SV specification.

 
 
But as happens often with high-dollar cars, the most recent owner paid some €400,000 to convert it back to its original S specification, and restored it to exactly how Stewart bought it.

Stewart wasn’t the only A-lister to own a Miura — Eddie Van Halen and Twiggy also had Miuras in their garages. Like all P400 S cars, this Miura is powered by a transversely mounted, 4.0-litre DOHC V12 topped with six carburetors, making 375 horsepower. And the sound of the engine and straight-cut gears is like nothing else out there.

RM Sotheby’s London auction will take place on September 5.

Rod Stewart performs at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2018.
 

On the other hand, he might be setting a slower pace. Stewart took no less than three significant breaks during his performance, leaving his band and singers to fill in the gaps with drum and sax solos, plus an Ike and Tina Turner cover of "Nutbush City Limits" that played well in Tennessee. 

The breaks also included a cameo performance from The Sisterhood, a Nashville-based country duo that features his daughter, Ruby Stewart and fellow songwriter Alyssa Bonagura. The two performed their tune "Half Way" with Stewart's band, before dad returned to sing "Forever Young" with them.

"There's my lovely daughter. I think she's turned out rather well," Stewart said afterwards, then adding: "She was a little s--- when she was 14."

Breaks aside, Stewart made the most of his stage time during his near two-hour set. Few songs went by without turning into arena-wide sing-alongs, especially "Maggie Mae," during which Stewart repeatedly turned his microphone out to the masses.

Between acoustic renditions of "The First Cut Is the Deepest" and "You're In My Heart," Stewart had to exclaim, “You’re all singers! Everybody sings in Nashville!” 

Balloons rained down from ceiling during the disco anthem "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy," and "Stay With Me" (from his old band, Faces) featured another Stewart kid: his 7-year-old son, Aiden, who kicked soccer balls into the crowd alongside his dad, then breakdanced on the stage floor. Perhaps that was the moment everyone under that arena roof witnessed Stewart's secret to staying "Forever Young."
