Syd Barrett’s house for sale

Syd71With the terrible passing of Syd Barrett, there seems to be a bit of a garage sale going on. First his personal artifacts went on sale at a Cambridge auction, which included his bike, painting equipment and the like… and now, up for grabs is his old house.

The 3 bedroomed house in Cambridge is going for £300,000 and set in the "highly regarded" South East of the city. It also has a massive garden, and Syd lived there from 1981 up to the time of his death. The site selling the house has notes from his sister Rosemary, which states that "Roger (Syd’s real name) loved
the peace and quiet of St Margarets Square, hearing the children in the
road playing and enjoying cycling to the local shops.
He put his stamp on the house with frequent redecoration, building his
own furniture".
