They had smash hits, including “Dancing Queen,” “Waterloo,” and the entire soundtrack to the musical “Mamma Mia!” (which was based on their hit music), but now one lucky person can own a piece of ABBA history – their vacation home.
For the first time in nearly half a century, the Tierra Verde, Florida estate is on the market for $3.95 million.
“On the tranquil island of Tierra Verde, a house suspended in time and originally designed and built in the Swedish Longhouse style for the iconic ABBA group has hit the market for the first time in nearly four decades!” says the listing on Sotheby’s International Realty.
“Imagine the band members arriving home under the grand porte-cochere and beginning their stay away from London in this house, tailor-made for relaxation and enjoyment.”
The six-bedroom, 4.5-plus-bathroom home has been updated, according to the listing, so no worries for a potential new owner.
Residence features include:
According to the listing, the 4,527-square-foot home “is split into two identical ‘mirrored’ floor plans with each side comprising a downstairs master suite, loft, and two bedrooms with a jack-and-so-tub -Jill”.
ABBA is a Swedish band consisting of Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lynstad – the first letters of the members’ first names creating the “ABBA” palindrome. The group was popular from 1972 to 1982 before breaking up, reuniting in 2016.
