Birds of a Feather's Pauline Quirke puts her Dorset penthouse on the market

The actress is flying the nest and selling up for £695,000

Step inside Pauline Quirke's house in sunny Dorset. The stunning penthouse apartment, offering panoramic sea views, is located in West Bay. The property is a long way from Chigwell, where the famous TV show was set – but it is in the heart of where hit TV series Broadcurch was filmed!

According to the Daily Mail, Pauline moved into the apartment in 2014, while filming for the show. The same complex was said to be used as a location in the second series, in which Pauline starred as Susan Wright.

This clever design opens up the apartment and maximises the impact of the harbour views. Enhanced further by a wall of bi-folding glass doors.

In contrast to the modern setting, the master bedroom's decor is more traditional. The French-inspired upholstered bed and painted furniture pieces prove that even the most modern interior can be dressed with an elegant French-inspired style.
