The five-bedroom childhood home of beloved pop icon Rick Astley has gone on sale for £360,000. 

The three-floor former home of the 57-year-old, best known for mega-hit Never Gonna Give You Up, which topped the charts in the UK for five weeks, is in the village of Newton-le-Willows in Merseyside. 

It features five double bedrooms, two of them en suites, two large reception rooms, and a spacious living space, which he shared with his two older brothers and an elder sister.

While it is in good shape, a property like this might be a good investment if you are thinking of renovating a house

Astley 'didn't want to give it up or desert it'

Despite growing up in the house, Astley is not the current owner of the property and so the decision to sell (this time) was not his.

The property is being advertised via THINK Property estate agents and one cheeky spokesperson for THINK said: "The former owner of this house definitely didn't want to give it up or desert it. It's a five-bedroom, end terrace property, it's a great size inside."

Astley now lives in plush Molesey, Surrey, with his wife Lene Bausager.

Home has five double-sized bedrooms 

The home boasts high ceilings and large windows throughout the home as well as five bedrooms. 

The many bedrooms are believed to have been needed for Astley, his two older brothers and his sister. Each of the bedrooms are double-bed-sized with three of them being on the first floor and two on the second. 

There is also the possibility of adding another room in the loft space for any buyers  keen to carry out a loft conversion.

Kitchen was redesigned in 2011

Fitted in 2011, the kitchen comprises of wooden wall and base units with an accompanying laminate worktop, double stainless steel sink, and a tiled splashback.

The fridge freezer, dishwasher, gas oven, and hob are included, and there is built-in storage in the utility room to provide extra space.

Property comes with large garage to the rear too

The property also boasts a spacious garage design with lighting, sockets, and plumbing with access via a shared and gated driveway. 

The rear garden is west-facing and gets the sun most of the day and evening. It comprises a paved seating area with a grass lawn accompanied by some mature shrubbery.

THINK stated: "This exceptional residence boasts an array of desirable features, including a double garage conveniently positioned at the rear for hassle-free parking."
