Dickens' former home for saleBreaking News
Bleak House, the former home of Charles Dickens in Broadstairs, Kent, is for sale through Chesterton Humberts. The six-bedroom house arranged over four floors is on the market for £2,000,000.
Bleak House was the holiday home of Charles Dickens and his family between 1837 and 1859. It is where he completed David Copperfield, in 1851, and the house still features Dickens’ original desk and study on the extreme right on the house overlooking the sea. The mahogany staircase in the house and some fireplaces are also believed to be original.
