A ‘Tardis-style’ flat which sits above the former home of Roald Dahl is for sale.

On a beautiful private cobbled courtyard between Clapham Common and Battersea Park, 8 Turnchapel Mews runs along the top of the BFG author’s former base. It is where he penned some of his best known works, including The Witches and Matilda.

From the outside the mews property could seem rather small but looks can be deceiving. It stretches over 4,000 sq ft, with a 90 ft terrace and separate annexe that can be rented out.

Russell Simpson has just added it to its books for £3.95 million.

The pretty mews has long attracted cultural figures. Famous contemporary British painter Euan Uglow also lived there. Chosen for its privacy and ability to inspire great work, Uglow was once quoted as saying “it is difficult for me to function anywhere else than in my house studio”.
