Oscar Wilde’s Vacation Home Is up for Sale
THIS is where you finish the novel
“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relations.”
Just one of the many witticisms Oscar Wilde stuffed into A Woman of No Importance, a satire of Britain’s upper-class society, which debuted in April of 1893. The home where Wilde wrote the play (over a two month period in 1892), was recently restored and is now up for sale via real estate agents Strutt & Parker, to the tune of $1.1M.
Named Grove Farmhouse, it shouldn’t have any trouble hosting family dinners. The sweeping space sits on half an acre in Norfolk, England (a couple hours outside London, along the coast), with a massive farmhouse kitchen, four bedrooms and three bathrooms. During Wilde’s stays, he would’ve also enjoyed access to a bowling green and tennis courts. He spent most of his days with his wife, Constance Lloyd, and a clandestine few with his loved Lord Alfred Douglas.
If you miss out on the house, stay tuned for luxury renovations on the nearby barns, which should sell for $600K each.
