James Bond’s “Fictional London Home”: Yours for £6.8 Million
A luxurious five-bedroom house on London’s Royal Avenue that bears a striking resemblance to the fictional James Bond home as described in the original Bond book ‘Moonraker’ has gone on the market for £6.8 million.
In the book, author Ian Fleming revealed Bond’s home to be on the ground floor of a Regency house in a small Chelsea Square with Plane trees, making it virtually indistinguishable from this real life Royal Avenue address.
Boasting five floors, sleek bathrooms, a cosy study and open dining areas, the magnificent Grade II listed property is perched just off King’s Road, within close proximity to Sloane Square and Sloane Street.
Spread over some 3,000 square feet, it is billed as offering a classic first-floor drawing room with beautiful high ceilings and views over Royal Avenue, providing “generously proportioned and well-balanced accommodation throughout, where space has been organised to create maximum flexibility for comfortable family living.”
Royal Avenue was the fictional home of James Bond. Historically, it was designed by Sir Christopher Wren on behalf of William III in the 1690s as part of a proposed carriageway linking the Royal Hospital to Kensington Palace.
Estate agents Strutt and Parker are handling the sale of this property.
