Property description

A unique and very characterful, South-West facing, double fronted, 4 storey, end ot terrace, early Victorian house set in this superb crescent and close by all the excellent facilities of Camden Town and Primrose Hill.
The former home of author, Alan Bennett, this Grade II listed house has been made famous as the setting for his play, The Lady In The Van, and was extensively used in the making of the recent film of the same name.
The property retains many of its original period details including decorative plasterwork, carpentry and fireplaces on one of which is an inscription recording the name of the architect and the date of completion of the building in 1840.
The house now requires full renovation to create an exceptional family home.
