The former home of Peter Pan novelist J.M Barrie has just gone on the market for £8.5 million ($10.5 million) in the heart of Kensington.
The historic six-bedroom home inspired the author to write the classic tale Peter Pan in 1890, especially its top floor balcony, which you may recognise as the spot where characters Wendy and Peter stood before leaving for the fictional country of Neverland.
Situated in Gloucester Road in the affluent London area of South Kensington, the end terrace house is arranged over four floors, and has wonderful period features such as solid wooden flooring and ornate cornicing. Other standout features include the large reception rooms, grand bedrooms, fully-fitted kitchen, sprawling views and a practical utility room.
Beside a sizable double reception room on the ground floor you’ll also find a dining room and a bar which opens out onto a balcony.
Moving through the home, two large double bedrooms, a smaller double bedroom and a large family bathroom can all be found on the first floor.
Meanwhile, the lower ground floor boasts a family dining room, a fully fitted kitchen, utility room and a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. There is also direct access to the front and back garden through a side door.
The front of the property overlooks the communal Hereford Square garden whilst residents also have a private garden at the rear – a luxury for those living in London. A further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom can also be found on the second floor – one bedroom of which leads out onto a balcony.
