Lewis Capaldi's childhood home in West Lothian on sale for just under £400,000
The West Lothian house where Scottish pop star Lewis Calpaldi honed his singing and song-writing skills has now been put up for sale.
Before gaining worldwide fame with is debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, the singing sensation would record musical performances in the East Whitburn, Bathgate property – now on the market for £395,000 – that he would then post online.
Capaldi family photos featuring the star can still be seen on the walls of the property in estate agent pictures.
One picture even shows a microphone stand still perched in the corner of what was once Capaldi’s bedroom.
His mother Carol bought the property for £220,000 back in 2005.
A description of the five-bedroom property – put on the market last month – describes it as “an exceptional and individually built family home”.
The advert says the property, listed as under offer, has been “improved by the current owners”.
Capaldi (24), who now lives in a £1.6 million mansion in Renfrewshire, won a Brit Award for Best New Artist back in 2020 a year after his debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, created a stir by remaining at the top of the UK Albums Chart for over six weeks.
Arguably his best – and to date, most popular – song Someone You Loved was the best selling single of 2019 in the UK and a year later it was announced the hit single had become the longest-running top 10 UK single of all time by a British artist.
