About two years ago, two-time Oscar nominated British actor Jude Law and his on-again/off-again/on-again gal-pal Siena Miller picked up a £7-plus million property in North London’s hoity-toity and star-studded Highgate neighborhood.
We don’t know when or if Mister Law (and Miss Miller) moved into their big new house in Highgate where some of the neighboring residences are owned by folks like supermodel Kate Moss, actor Clive Owens, pop star George Michael and veteran rock star Sting and wife Trudy Styler but thanks to an English informant we’ll call Bree Tish we’ve learned that Mister Law has listed his four-floor, Grade II listed Georgian style house on the border between London’s natty Maida Vale nabe and the even more posh St. John’s Wood ‘hood.
Online listings forwarded by Miss Tish show the asking price set at £4,350,000. A few quick clicks on Your Mama’s trusty currency conversion contraption shows that equals $6,869,910 (U.S.) at today’s rates.
According to Miss Tish, Mister Law’s walled and gated residence sits on a very busy thoroughfare across from a high-rise social housing complex. Not the most elegant location but as anyone who’se ever lived in a major metropolitan area, urban living sometimes pushes the privileged up against the less financially fortunate.
Anyhoo, a good-sized gated and graveled motor court with what appears to be a single car garage in front provides enviably generous off-street parking and the rear garden extends a unusually deep 144-feet.
