Prodigy star Keith Flint’s £1.5million house is back on the market

Keith Flint’s £1.5million country estate is back on the market five months after the Prodigy singer’s tragic death.

Just days before Mr Flint was found hanged at his 15th century rustic estate in North End, Essex, he had put the property up for sale through Andersons estate agents, based in nearby Dunmow.

The six-acre estate boasts four bedrooms, four receptions rooms, a gym and several farm outbuildings.

The listing was taken down after he passed away in March this year aged 49 while his family sorted out his financial affairs.

Mr Flint’s estate was reportedly worth £11.3 million, but he owed £7.3 million in taxes and debt.

Andersons confirmed today that the property is available online and open for viewings ‘in the next week or so.’

Photos taken earlier this summer show the estate appearing eerily abandoned.

Animal-loving Mr Flint had eight dogs, but the line of kennels in the property’s stony driveway lay empty.

His PR confirmed that all his pooches have all been rehoused.

An inquest revealed in May revealed that Mr Flint died from hanging and there was traces of cocaine, codeine and alcohol in his blood, but there wasn’t sufficient evidence to confirm that the star intended to take his own life.

Essex senior coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray recorded an open conclusion and said: ‘We will never quite know what was going on in his mind on that date.’

There was an outpouring of grief with fans visiting the home and leaving dozens of cards and flowers.

The views from the property are spectacular. Musicians paid tribute to Flint with James Blunt saying he had 'shed a tear' and 'there are no prizes for being kind, but if there was, that Grammy would be yours'

But they were removed and, in their place, was placed a single flower tied to the main wooden gates.

Mr Flint had made more than £1.5million in the past two years with The Prodigy releasing its seventh consecutive number one album, No Tourists, last November and starting their 2019 world tour.

But the star, who battled depression, had recently split with his Japanese wife Mayumi and put the £1.5million mansion ‘he loved’ in Dunmow, Essex, up for sale on the eve of his death.

Essex senior coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray said earlier this month there was insufficient evidence to show he had committed suicide, saying: ‘To record that I would have to have found that, on the balance of probabilities, Mr Flint formed the idea and took a deliberate action, knowing it would result in his death.’

She also found insufficient evidence to conclude his death was the result of an accident, for example if he had been ‘larking around and it all went horribly wrong’.

Mrs Beasley-Murray added: ‘We will never know what was going on in his mind on that date, so that’s why I am going to record an open conclusion.’
