We think it's worth Splash-ing out on!
Are you looking to dive into the property market? Where better place to start than Tom Daley’s apartment, which has just come up for sale for £1,187,000.
Olympic medallist Tom and his Oscar-winning husband Dustin Lance Black have put their Southwark home on the market after four happy years there. And though the two-bedroom apartment lacks a diving board – or indeed, a pool – there is a hot tub on the balcony!
The handsome couple have listed the place with William Lynch and Tom’s Twitter feed suggests he’s a little sad to see it go.
Looking around, we can understand why. Let’s start in the living room, with its views across to the River Thames and a stunning Mid-Century look…
Statement pieces, including a Chesterfield sofa and plank coffee table, are brought together with a beautiful blue rug. Is it just us or does it remind you a little of a swimming pool?!
The open-plan space leads through to a smart and social kitchen-diner, complete with aqua bar stools and copper lighting. Beyond, you can just see the second of three outdoor terraces.
Last year, Tom gave us a snapshot of life in the apartment, telling Homes & Property, ‘I love cooking my mum’s sausage casserole recipe, for example, or baking cheesecake for friends. We made Christmas dinner here for 17 guests.’
Here’s where Tom sleeps – we wonder if he keeps his World Championship gold medals under his pillow? Maybe not…
Next, the bathroom. Sadly the tub doesn’t boast Olympic proportions, but it’s not a bad size!
As the property is listed ‘with no onward chain’, it could be the case that Tom and Lance have already moved out. Which is a shame, as we’d love them to give us the tour in person!
It IS unusual! Tom Jones has sold his Beverly Hills mansion and quit the US
As Tom says, let’s hope it finds a lovely new owner.
