A ''Notting Hill'' flat

The famous apartment where Hugh Grant romanced Julia Roberts, is back up for sale

Posted on

Immortalized as Hugh Grant’s flat with the blue door in Notting Hill, this apartment was owned by the film’s writer-producer, Richard Curtis, who took advantage of Hill‘s publicity to sell it to an undisclosed buyer. (Curtis reportedly purchased it in 1994 for $500,000.) The film used a soundstage for interiors — a shame, since the real thing boasts a 1,000-square-foot main room, two mezzanine galleries, a fireplace, and a custom-built kitchen. Still, the owner can let friends think Grant and Julia Roberts were there — all that’s missing is a filthy Welsh flatmate.
