Tony Iommi lived in a mansion in Warwickshire

Tony Iommi found fame as the guitarist in the rock band Black Sabbath.

He was born in Birmingham and lived in a home in the quiet village of Lapworth in Warwickshire.

The rural village is still within easy reach of Birmingham, located around 13 miles away.

Tony lived in a detached mansion with six bedrooms, a cinema room and games room.

It had a large garden and offered plenty of privacy for the musician.

On top of this, there is a self-contained annexe including a recording studio, bedroom and kitchen.

The Edwardian property spanned an impressive 8,000 sq ft and had original features such as stained glass windows and open fireplaces.

Tony put the property on the market 10 years ago for a huge £3million.

This came as he expressed a desire to "scale down" and live a more "peaceful life".

Lapworth is a traditional area with plenty to do including museums and historical sites.

The average house price in the area is an eye-watering £1,109,994, according to Rightmove.

The most affordable homes are semi-detached properties that sell for around £477,488.

Tony's Black Sabbath bandmate Ozzy Osbourne owns a stunning property in the US.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne recently shared they would ditch the US for a quiet British village where they own a huge mansion.

Depeche Mode's Vince Clarke owned a quirky £1.9million home in the British countryside.

The musician had a property in Surrey which featured a unique spaceship design.
