Alfred Hitchcock fans were delighted to hear that a new anthology series paying homage to the great director is in the works.
Hitchcock researchers may like to pay a visit to Gainsborough Studios in Islington, built on the site of the original film studio where Hitchcock’s first suspense thriller The Lodger was shot.
He returned to film his later masterpiece The Lady Vanishes and a number of Forties melodramas were produced there.
Now a contemporary development, the courtyard bears a large and impressive sculpture of Hitchcock’s head.
A two-bedroom apartment in the block, designed by renowned architects Munkenbeck and Marshall, is on the market (pictures below).
It has a terrace and panoramic views overlooking Regents Canal. There is also a gym and 24 hour porter on site.
Listed with Fyfe Mcdade for £895,000, it would make a fabulous home for film buffs (020 7354 4044).
