With money comes the satisfaction of spending it.

And Sir Mick Jagger is clearly a fan after reportedly splashing out more than £1 million on a property for his girlfriend this Christmas.

The Rolling Stones frontman, 77, has bought a four bedroom Florida property for ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick.

Sir Mick is said to have paid $1.9 million (£1.4 million) for the house in late October, with the title put in Miss Hamrick’s name, according to real estate firm Michael Saunders & Company who sold the home.

Tina Ciaccio, the listing agent, said the couple didn’t even visit the home before buying.

Speaking to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, she said: ‘It was very cool hearing Mick Jagger’s voice over the phone; that was neat. But regardless, they really were a pleasure, a great couple to transact with.’

The property sits on roughly a third of an acre in the planned community of Lakewood Ranch, according to the publication, and is situated next to a lake with nearly 8,400 square feet (780 square meters) under the roof.

US chat show host Jerry Springer, horror writer Stephen King and AC/DC singer Brian Johnson also own properties in Sarasota.
