Ingrid Bergman lived/died here
Legendary actress Ingrid Bergman lived and died here.
Location: Flat 4, 9 Cheyne Gardens, Chelsea
Description: This is where 3 time Oscar-winning actress Ingrid Bergman lived and on her 67th birthday on August 29th, 1982, she passed away. She was a fighter - she had battled breast cancer for 8 years, but it didn't stop her working, her last film was being shown on the night she died.
She moved in here in 1979 and no doubt enjoyed it's marvellous 200 square foot roof terrace.
