Liz Hurley’s (@ElizabethHurley) old Fulham home up for sale
Back in the late 1980s, in the days BH (Before Hugh), Elizabeth Hurley lived in a modest maisonette in Fulham. This property is currently on the market, now elevated in status because of the celebrity connection, as well as having been renovated recently. Jessie Hewitson takes a peak.
These days it’s a sleek, modern grey-and-white painted property on the two upper floors of a period conversion. Located on Sherbrooke Road, Fulham, London, SW6 (average property value according to Zoopla £768,057) in chi-chi Munster Village, it is on the market for £600,000 through the estate agency John D Wood.
Hurley, now 47, lived in the bijou flat while filming Remando Al Vientro (translation: Rowing in the Wind). It was on the set of this film that she met floppy-haired Grant, now 52, who then, according to neighbours, became a regular visitor.
Much like Hurley herself, the 810 sq ft two-bedroom, two-bathroom flat has gentrified considerably over time. In 2009 it was also on the market – though back then it was a one-bed; it has since been refurbished and extended, with a bedroom and bathroom being added in the attic space.
Hurley now has far bigger property fish to fry: she and her new fiance, cricketer Shane Warne, have combined their millions to buy a £6m country estate in Herefordshire, and Hurley also owns a 400-acre farm in the Cotswolds.
Hugh Grant, meanwhile, stayed local and now owns a substantial home in Chelsea. Last year he also bought a £1.175m terraced house in Fulham for the mother of his two children, 32 year-old actress Tinglan Hong.
