T-Rex rocker Marc Bolan's country house has been put up for sale - and it boasts lots of renovations carried out by the star himself.

The METAL GURU singer lived in the picturesque six-bedroom rectory in Weston Under Penyard, Britain until he died in a car crash in 1977, and now the personally renovated property has been put on the market for $1.9 million (GBP1.2 million).

A property source says, "Marc bought it as a rundown hovel and turned it into a luxury dwelling with music room, swimming pool, tennis court and stables.

"Much of the work was his own as he was quite nifty with a drill."
