The London home that inspired JM Barrie to write Peter Pan is for sale through John D Wood
”Step back into your childhood and discover the inspiration novelist JM Barrie once found to writer Peter Pan in this distinguished house where the author lived in 1890,” says Benjamin-Thomas Ross, who is selling the London home through John D Wood & Co in collaboration with CP Real Estate Ltd, Monaco-London.
This magnificent six-bedroom freehold house on Gloucester Road is draped in history. Set over four floors, the house owes most of its grandeur to its exceptional width and depth and enjoys both a front and rear garden.
Retaining the majority of its period features, including ornate cornicing and original solid wood flooring throughout, it also offers a large double reception room on the ground floor with ceilings in excess of three metres and grand stone mullion windows looking onto the communal garden of Hereford Square.
It is situated in the heart of South Kensington, close to museums, parks, restaurants and the shops of Knightsbridge and Kings Road.”
