It’s a two-bedroom Willesden Green property, the location for a good number of Dennis Nilsen’s actual murders, and - according to the Telegraph - it’s currently under offer (for roughly £490,000). The Telegraph claims the property’s been on the market for around a year and is marketed at a substantial discount. Interestingly, this isn’t the first London property to hit the market with a bit of Nilsen history in recent years. Back in the summer of 2013 there was this, the Muswell Hill Murderer’s smaller but more upmarket flat, a stone’s throw from Highgate.

And it’s in Hampstead Heath. Langtry House is all but invisible from the road… just a shallow wood-clad building the height of the garage it replaced. Below ground… three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a gym, wine cellar and cinema. It’s unique and beautiful and - perhaps most surprisingly - light… thanks to the clever patio garden. Guide price £4.5m. More here. Particulars here.

The Standard mourns the end of the Primrose Hill party. Now - apparently - it’s all avocado on toast and yoga mats now. David Walliams owns Supernova Heights, Kate Moss has gone and the old revellers’ teenage children hang out together. Jeez, though, imagine the ugly alternative. Anyway, it’s an entertaining little look at a postcode, so here you go.

On the one hand, there’s Russell, standing up for a group of Hoxton tenants with a genuine grievance, helping them organise and giving them a voice and media attention they wouldn’t otherwise have. On the other… there’s Russell, in all likelihood one of the gazillionaires companies such as Westbrook Partners are busy gentrifying estates such as New Era in order to house. Legitimate question? Or snide? Either way, I wish Brand would learn to keep his hands to himself during a debate… there’s something (perhaps unintentionally) bullying about holding onto the person you’re arguing with.

Plus one sleb. Russell Brand - pictured here - joined around 60 tenants to march on Westbrook Partners’ Mayfair HQ, and demonstrate against planned rent rises and rumoured evictions in the run-up to a “gentrification” of the Hackney estate. According to eye witnesses, the protestors were cheered by onlookers, before marching on to Downing Street. If you’re interested in reading more/signing the petition, go here.

According to data gathered by Chestertons estate agents, it’s St John’s Wood, where weekly rentals averaged £1,889 in Q3 and gross yields of 4.2% also topped all other Prime London locations. (Averages in Prime London are £915pw and 3.1%.) Accompanying comment points to large company relocations packages as sources for the revenue, and a 20 minute journey to Canary Wharf as convenient.

Remember the tiny flat in Islington, that received some coverage at the beginning of September? It’s sold. The agents won’t say what the final figure was but it apparently received more interest than anything else on their books. The Telegraph is calling it Britain’s smallest home. Have they forgotten about this?
