He became the ‘poster boy’ for the London 2012 Olympics. Diver and Olympic gold medallist Tom Daley takes the leap to sell up in SE1.
He is waving goodbye to his fabulous third floor apartment and his move made a splash (we couldn’t resist the pun) across the press this week.
Tom Daley and his screenwriter husband Dustin Lance Black are leaving their stunning apartment in SE1. The pair tied the knot last year and it’s time to make a new home together.
We are delighted to help Tom find a new owner to take on his property and create memories of their own. We’ve been welcoming enquiries and setting up viewings.
His two bedroom apartment has welcomed interest – not just from perspective buyers – but the media. We always love to see Southwark soak up the limelight.
Unfortunately the dwelling doesn’t come with his infamous Union Jack sofa but the hot tub and fantastic views of the Shard – found on the three sizeable south, east and west facing terraces – make up for that.
It’s easy to understand why Tom would be sad to leave this spectacular pad in SE1. His flat is in a sought after spot close to London Bridge and Borough station. Bermondsey Street is a short walk away.
He’s not the only celeb drawn to Southwark. The area has attracted its fair share of celebrities to set up home and who can blame them?
Zandra Rhodes, fashion designer and founder of Bermondsey Street’s Fashion and Textile Museum, arrived during the 1990s. She still resides on Bermondsey Street.
Actress Ruth Wilson, who starred in the National Theatre’s Hedda Gabler, bought a loft-style flat in Bermondsey a few years ago and previously rented her parents’ London bolthole in SE1.
Norman Ackroyd, one of Britain’s most famous contemporary printmakers known for his landscape works, still resides in good old Bermondsey.
