The London flat where Alfred Hitchcock lived with his family from 1926-1939 has recently gone up for sale.
Patricia Hitchcock, who was born in the house July 27th 1928, returned to the home in 1999 and unveiled a blue plaque on the home to celebrate what would have been her father’s 100th birthday.
The Pennington home, located on 153 Cromwell Road, was split into flats at the beginning of the century while it was owned by the local council. The property on the market with Harrods Estates is the lower ground 503 square foot flat, and is listed for just under £600,000.
Although the size is modest, the West London area has become a desirable place to live in recent years. The refurbished flat is attracting attention from prospective buyers who would like to own a piece of history.
Being the former residence of Alfred Hitchcock is more than just a conversation piece. Hitchcock worked on scripts for The Man Who Knew Too Much, The 39 Steps, and discussed future business with colleagues in this flat. Below is photo from the early 1930s of Alfred Hitchcock, his wife Alma, and his secretary.
