From Lord Sugar’s one bedroom Hackney home, to David Beckham’s two-up, two-down and Adele’s one-bed flat above a discount store, we take a look at the humble beginnings of London’s rich and famous
Sir Alan Sugar’s house in London
Address: Flat 1, Woolmer House, Upper Clapton Road, London E5 8SU
This one-bedroomed house in Hackney is where Lord Sugar would watch his father, a local tailor, struggle to put food on the table. But then again, it is in this house that Sugar laid the first bricks to his multi-million pound empire. The average price of a house on this street is £197, 451, but we wonder if Lord Sugar’s first home had a similar price tag?
Where David Beckham lived
Address: 155 Norman Road, London E11 4RJ
You would think that football fanatics would jostle to pay any amount to snap up Beckham’s first abode but sadly that’s not the case. His first house has an estimated current value of £231,145,and back in 2009, the house had to be withdrawn from a Savills auction after failing to exceed its guide price of £215,000. Brand Beckham buzzing? Not so much!
Adele’s London home
Address: 296a Norwood Road, London SE27 9AF
Adele might have moved into a 10-bedroomed home in Hertfordshire last month, but this flat above a discount store called This That and the Other, in West Norwood, is where she penned her Grammy winning renditions including Someone Like You. The current estimated value of this house is £244,949, but surely the celebrity connection could help it fetch a good deal more?
Jessie J’s Essex house
Address: 22 Fontayne Avenue, Romford RM1 4NR
She might be tipped as a “British answer to Rihanna or Pink”, but Jessie J’s celebrity status hasn’t dazzled the pricetag for her childhood home, the price standing at £241,728.
David Cameron’s London home
Address: 3 Finstock Road, London W10 6LT
Before assuming the mantle of UK’s prime minister and calling swish Number 10 home, David Cameron lived in a five bedroomed Notting Hill property with his family. The current value of the house is £1,614,194, and is the home that saw the PM come to power.
Where Robert Pattinson’s lived
Address: 17 Ullswater Road, London SW13 9PL
Twilight star Robert Pattinson has rehearsed many a dialogue in this four bed house on Ullswater Road. The current current average value of homes on this street is £1,056,405
