Snap up Oscar Wilde’s flat
As one bedroom flats go, it’s not exactly cheap at £1,150,000, but this property in Tite Street, London SW3, was once Oscar Wilde’s family home and where he wrote The Importance of Being Earnest and The Picture of Dorian Gray (click here for full property details), as the blue plaque outside proves.
It’s changed a bit since Oscar’s day of course – his library is now a bedroom and it’s all been extensively renoated by current owner interior design Myca Lee – but as Tom Wilson from Savills Sloane Street says, Tite Street is “ideally situated in the heart of Old Chelsea, between the Kings Road and the River Thames and would make the ideal pied-à-terre”.
“The link with Oscar Wilde makes it a very special property,” comments Wilson, “especially as you would get to sleep in the very same room where he wrote some of his famous books and plays. The property has also been beautifully decorated and would allow someone to simply move in and enjoy the flat.”buying flat, moving house, oscar wilde, real estate
