For £14,950,000, you could own a part of literary history in London. You may not know the name Professor Horace Hayman Wilson, but you probably know the George Bernard Shaw character he inspired. From the play “Pygmalion” to the movie My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison, the professor who once lived in this Marylebone townhouse was the real-life Professor Henry Higgins.
The property, located on Upper Wimpole Street, has remained largely untouched since Wilson’s death in 1860. You can still expect a 10-bedroom mansion with a series of beautiful family and entertaining rooms. Upon entering the grand property, you will walk into a large entrance hall which leads to a library, family kitchen and breakfast room on the ground floor. Not to mention the seriously stunning 16-seat formal dining room with Corinthian columns to add to that classic English style.
And that’s just on the ground floor. One the first floor, you’ll find two reception rooms with signature high ceilings found throughout the property. Go up another floor and find two bedrooms and a bathroom. The third and fourth floors boast a further five bedrooms. It doesn’t stop there. The property also features a lower ground floor that has three bedrooms, a reception room, kitchen, bathroom and vault storage.
The outdoor areas include rich garden patios, which lead to yet another house that could be all yours. This two-story mews is filled with a living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Don’t miss out on your chance to live life like Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle would have, it may be your only one! Find out more information via rokstone.com
