Michael Winner's Woodland House

Film director Michael Winner's amazing house.

Location: 31 Melbury Road, Holland Park

Description: Woodland House is a large detached house in the Queen Anne style by the architect Richard Norman Shaw for the painter Luke Fildes.

Fildes had a rivalry with neighbour and fellow artist Marcus Stone who also had a house on this road built by Shaw. He said in November 1876 The house is getting on famously and looks stunning... It is a long way the most superior house of the whole lot; I consider it knocks Stone's to fits, though of course he wouldn't have that by what I hear he says of his, but my opinion is the universal one.

It is a Grade II* listed building and a blue plaque was added in 1959.

Film director Michael Winner moved in here in 1978 when it was still flats and spent millions restoring and creating an opulent home, complete with swimming pool, cinema and extensive gardens, which he loved.

In 2008 Winner declared that wanted to leave the house as a museum, but discussions with Kensington and Chelsea council apparently stalled over financing.
