If this kitchen looks familiar to you that's because it has featured in numerous cooking adverts and promotions, and now it's up for sale
Does this kitchen look a little familiar to you? Chances are you’ve seen its sleek lines many times before on TV, as a rather famous celebrity chef cooks up a storm on the wooden worktops.
Because this isn’t just any house, this is a location house in Clapham, London that has been used to film commercials for Jamie Oliver and The River Cafe, amongst others.
Yes that’s right, cooking legend Jamie Oliver has used these very worksurfaces to slice, dice and saute his vegetables. And now it’s on the market, the next lucky owners could find themselves cooking in the very same kitchen; should they have a spare £1.1million in the bank.
The Georgian townhouse has been used for some time by TV crews who want to utilise the airy kitchen with its wide central island unit and sleek wooden surfaces, so it will have a real appeal for wannabe chefs.
But how did this humble (ish) property get its big break on the small screen? Well it’s perhaps unsurprising that this Clapham property
has a secret celebrity double life, as the current owner is a film
and TV producer who specialises in finding locations for shoots. And where better to start scouting than your very own home?!
With so much space in the roomy kitchen, the lucky new owners will be able to prepare their scrambled eggs with style and panache every morning and perhaps deliver a piece to camera whilst prepping their evening meal.
The rest of the house is pretty showbiz too, with generous rooms, period features and quirky interior decoration. The property’s close proximity to Clapham Common with its plentiful transport links and green parks is bound to draw in lots of interested viewers.
The smart exterior hides a showbiz interior – just think of all the celebrities that have made their way through this humble front door – although the showbiz price tag might filter out most of us aspiring cooks. Ah well, we can still dream.
