Björn Ulvaeus had a UK home for around 10 years

Björn Ulvaeus is one of the superstars of the pop group ABBA.

Originally from Sweden, the musician has owned homes across the world.

This includes a luxury mansion in the Chilterns, Buckinghamshire which he had from the 1990s until 2005.

The huge property was well equipped and featured a 38ft drawing room, 30ft living room and large family room.


It is a "picturesque" part of the UK


It was also fitted with a sizeable study, conservatory and designer kitchen.

The property gave a nod to Björn's home country as it had Swedish-style decor.

There were fresh white walls and modern wooden floors in the six-bedroom property.

The mansion was located in the Chilterns, which is an area of outstanding beauty.

The National Trust described it as having "rolling hills, distant views" and "acres of woodland to explore".

It added: "Situated in the picturesque Chiltern Hills, this group of popular beauty spots offers fabulous walking opportunities.

"Pleasant day long walks with a pub stop can take you through the intimate landscape of woods, farms and hamlets that make up much of the Chilterns."

The area is great for anyone hoping to spend time in nature, but it is also close to city life.


London is easily accessible from the Chilterns


It is a 1.5 hour drive from London, and Oxford and Reading are also easily accessible.

Other celebrities have settled down in a similar area to where Björn owned his home.

Sir Michael Caine lived in a £3.5million home in a UK village with "stunning landscapes".

He lived in a quiet part of Surrey which is also easily accessible to London.

The Jam's Paul Weller also lives in Surrey and owned a home one mile from a "peaceful lake".
