Happy World Book Day 2017!

World Book Day is a great way to celebrate our favourite books and a chance for children across the country to dress up as their favourite character!

We wanted to be part of the fun so we found a few properties on Rightmove where famous authors have previously lived.

Roald Dahl, arguably one of the most famous children’s authors, was born in this incredible property. The family home was built in 1907 and was individually designed for Mr Harold Dahl, father of Roald Dahl. This home still has a lot of the original features and being the Roald Dahl estate gives this property such unique history.

The well-known author and playwright,  Enid Bagnold (Lady Jones), lived at the beautiful North End House. The home perfectly combines tradition with the elegance of a new home. It is thought that it was the garden at North End House that inspired Enid to write her famous play, The Chalk Garden.

This stunning country farm is located in East Sussex and was the family home of AA Milne. Watching his son Christopher Robin Milne exploring the area with his beloved teddy bear inspired the creation of one of our childhood favourite’s, Winnie-the-Pooh. We love this home!

We can’t take our eyes of this fabulous property! It’s located on one of Edinburgh’s most sought residential addresses and was previously owned by the Scottish writer, Sir Compton McKenzie, who was most famous for writing Monarch of the Glen.

Which home is your favourite?!
