It is well known Christie owned a house in Devon, where her Miss Marple stories are set, but she also lived in this London flat for 28 years. She lived there with her second husband, Sir Max Mallowan, from 1948 until her death in 1976.

Only a stones throw from the prestigious King’s Road in Chelsea, this ground-floor flat forms part of an Art Deco mansion block in Swan Court and has been refurbished to a very high standard.
