Do you want to wake up in rock star's bedroom?

ESTATE agents are predicting a riot over this Harrogate house that comes with impressive rock star credentials.

It belongs to the parents of Kaiser Chief Ricky Wilson, who is preparing to say a fond farewell to the much-loved family home.

The six-bedroom detached on Leeds Road, Harrogate, has a host of happy memories for the Kaisers' lead singer.

The Edwardian property, on the market with Knight Frank for 695,000, belonged to his maternal grandparents before his parents Geoff and Glynne made it their home 10 years ago.

Ricky is a regular visitor and, although he has a flat in Primrose Hill in London and a four-bedroomed house in Headingley, he still has his own bedroom at The Anchorage.

His father Geoff said: "The house has been in Glynne's family since the 1940s and has a lot of fond memories for us all. In fact, Ricky was tempted to buy it, but it didn't make sense because he is very Leeds-orientated."

He added: "Ricky and his brother James used to come here every Sunday when they were little to see their grandparents and they loved playing on the old piano and in the garden.

"They still come round of course. Ricky was over last Saturday. He brings his washing and his mum spends Sunday afternoons sewing the buttons back on his shirts. He does a lot of jumping around on stage and into the crowd and his buttons get ripped off."

Geoff, 67, a TV producer and director, and Glynne, a former score card girl on It's a Knockout, met in the 1970s while filming the popular game show.

The couple are selling their home because they want to downsize to a smaller property.

The Anchorage has a drawing room, dining room, breakfast kitchen and sitting room. Upstairs there are six bedrooms and a bathroom. The house also has a one-bedroom annexe and a large garden with an orchard and croquet lawn.

Ricky's room is full of art work and toys, which he still enjoys buying. His latest favourites, says his father, are light sabres.

Ricky, 30, who spent his early years in Appletreewick, near Skipton, before moving to Ilkley, was a pupil at Leeds Grammar School. He later got a masters' degree in art and was a lecturer at Leeds College of Art, while pursuing his dreams of chart success.

His indie rock band Kaiser Chiefs stormed the charts in 2005 with I Predict a Riot and their debut album, Employment, sold more than three million and was shortlisted for a Mercury music prize.

Their second album Yours Truly, Angry Mob yielded the number one song Ruby.

"He's worked very hard. He had three jobs at one point," said Mr Wilson. "He did 9am to 5pm at the college, then he ran a bar called Milo at night until 2am and he was in the band. When he did gigs, he used to get someone to stand in at the bar and rush back for 2am so he could cash up.

"He was plugging away at the music for a long time before he became famous."

Charismatic Ricky, known for his frenetic stage pogoing and crowd surfing, is now busy working on a new album with producer Mark Ronson.

It's due for release in November, so he could find himself spending Christmas in a new home.

"There was a lot of land with the house which used to be a market garden in 1930s, so there was plenty of room to section some land off and build another property, so that's what we've done. It will be traditional. It's a bit like The Anchorage but smaller.

"Ricky's asked for his own bedroom here and we've promised him one," said Mr Wilson.
