Peter Pan´s House for Sale
A semi-detached, double fronted villa laid out over just three floors.
Leinster Corner was built in 1820 as half of one of four pairs of semi-detached, double fronted villas, and is part of the only surviving pair. The house is situated on the corner of Leinster Terrace, overlooking Kensington Gardens and next to the much-heralded Lancaster’s Development.
It has a rich historical provenance, having been in the same family for nearly ninety years, over five generations. Formerly known as Leinster Lodge, 8 Agnes Villas, it was once the home of Sir J.M. Barrie, the novelist and playwright, best known as the creator of Peter Pan which he wrote here. Much of the internal fabric of the house remains unchanged from Barrie’s day, including wall panelling, fire places, door furniture and banisters.
An outstanding, low built, seven bedroom, Grade II Listed family house occupying approximately 4,857 sqft (451 sqm) over just three floors, with excellent entertaining space, large front and rear gardens, beautiful views overlooking Kensington Gardens and a separate underground parking space.
