ABBA’s Former Florida Getaway for Warm Weather Fun Hits the Market

‘Dancing Queen,’ ‘Waterloo,’ ‘Mamma Mia,’ the list goes on for hits by the world-famous, Swedish band ABBA. When the group wasn’t making music in London or touring around the world, their getaway in Tierra Verde, Florida was the perfect break. For the first time in almost four decades, the home is on the market asking $3.95 million.

ABBA’s financial manager, John Spalding, held the deed in his name, reportedly buying the home on behalf of the band as a warm weather winter retreat. Far from the Swedish band’s roots in Stockholm, the waterfront abode’s style certainly pays homage to their Scandinavian origins. Deep wood accents and angular lines carry throughout the home, which may need some updating here and there in today’s day and age. It has been in the same hands since Spalding sold it to the current owners.

Custom designed in sort of a Swedish style, the crash pad has a unique mirrored floor plan and is split down the middle, open evenly to the relaxing backyard. Its 4,527 square feet of space and six bedrooms allowed ample room for the band to unwind or wind up for entertaining. After all, the main floor’s lofty design would surely work for after-dinner dance parties blasting the band’s greatest hits.

The outdoor space is just as laidback and dreamy. Capturing views of lush palm trees and the water, a tropical feel is inevitable. The listing page alludes to the band enjoying pool days here, which will no doubt continue with new owners.

To top it off, the home has hurricane preventative technology, ideal for its island location. Lisa Farmer of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
