Freddie Mercury's house.

This is the house where Queen frontman Freddie Mercury died at the age of 45.

It is situated at 1 Logan Place in Kensington, London.

In 1982, the singer reportedly started to display symptoms of HIV. It is believed that he contracted the virus in July or August of that year while he was on tour in New York.

Throughout the 1980s, Mercury's health continued to decline. In August of 1986, he told his bandmates that he wanted to stop performing live because he wasn't able to do it anymore.

In 1987, it was noted that the singer had a skin lesion on his cheek.

Despite growing rumors in the media and numerous signs that he was unwell, Mercury continued to keep his AIDS diagnosis secret.

According to his partner, Jim Hutton, Freddie was officially diagnosed with AIDS in April of 1987. Up until that point, the singer seemingly ignored his symptoms and put them to the back of his mind.

However, he eventually decided to see a doctor when a lesion on his hand failed to heal.

Although the singer's diagnosis was kept within his inner circle, the British media quickly realized that something was amiss.

During the late 1980s, Mercury's physical appearance continued to worsen and Queen stopped touring. Around the same time, tabloid newspapers learned that two of his former lovers had succumbed to the virus in 1986.

In June of 1991, the singer disappeared from public life and retired to this house on Logan Place in Kensington. In the months that followed, his condition continued to deteriorate. According to friends and family, he started to lose his sight and became bedridden.

On November 23rd, 1991, Mercury put an end to the speculation by releasing a public statement in which he confirmed that he had AIDS. The following day, he died from the disease at the age of 45.

Freddie Mercury's home.

This is an aerial image of Freddie Mercury's former home on Logan Place. The premises cannot be seen from the outside because it is surrounded by a large 8-foot wall that is fitted with an anti-climb fence.

The inset photograph on the right was taken by Freddie's partner Jim Hutton during the summer of 1991. It is one of the last known photographs of the singer.

Garden Lodge currently belongs to Mercury's former girlfriend Mary Austin. Although the couple stopped seeing each other romantically, they remained extremely close up until his death.

The pair were such close friends that the Queen frontman left the house to Mary in his will.

Following his death, fans turned the outside wall into a shrine by writing messages on it and leaving flowers behind. However, this stopped in November of 2017 after Mary grew tired of the vandalism and graffiti. Over the years, she reportedly had to replace the front entrance multiple times.

Consequently, the "shrine" was painted over and a plastic perspex cover was placed over the main entrance.

Nowadays, the outside of the premises is fitted with a CCTV system. There are also warning signs that graffiti is a crime.

The house is situated at the end of Logan Place in Kensington. Judging by Google Street View, it seems as though Mary Austin decided to blur the house for privacy reasons.

Mercury started living here in 1980 after he purchased Garden Lodge for £500,000. In today's money, that is roughly £2.3 million.

This is a "bird's eye" view of the property, which is now worth more than £20 million.

Mary Austin and Freddie are pictured on the left. The couple had a long-term relationship during the 1970s, in which they got engaged. However, they ended things in 1976 after Mercury privately admitted to her that he was gay.

Following their split, the pair remained close friends. During one interview, the singer stated that Mary was his only true friend.
