Debenham House



Debenham House

Bizarre photogenic Debenham House seen in many films & tv shows.

Location: 8 Addison Road, Holland Park, London

Description: This unique property, also known as Peacock House, was built in 1906 by the famous Arts and Crafts architect Halsey Ricardo for Ernest Debenham, the co-founder of the Debenham & Freebody department store.

Its colourful ceramic and terracotta design is striking in comparison to the other stucco houses in the road. Mr Ricardo built the house using ceramic tiles, pale terracotta and coloured glazed bricks.

The Debenham family, which only owned the leasehold, moved out of the property in the 1940s.

For the past 30 years it was used as offices and meeting rooms for the Richmond Fellowship, a housing and employment charity, and in 2000 the house was sold to the Addison Trust.

Since then the house has been redeveloped and used as a location to film several television programmes including the recent spy drama Spooks.

It was featured in Mia Farrow's film Secret Ceremony, the colourful period melodrama Trottie True, the 1995 Richard III and The Wings of the Dove.

It even became the Arabian Embassy for the dire Carry On Emmannuelle and, more recently, the interior of the Edinburgh brasserie in which Julie Walters waits for the missing Rupert Grint in Driving Lessons.
