Supernova Heights, a house in north London’s posh Belsize Park neighborhood with a rich history of celebrity owners, hit the market Thursday with a £5.35 million (US$7.12 million) price tag.
It’s being sold by the actor, author and television personality David Walliams, famed for being half of the comedic duo behind the BBC sketch comedy series “Little Britain,” and, for his role as a judge on “Britain’s Got Talent” since 2012.
Mr. Walliams, 46, bought the three-bedroom semi-detached house in 2005 for £2.97 million, property records show. His representative did not respond to a request for comment.
Described as an exceptional architectural masterpiece in its listing, the Victorian house has a roof terrace, a south-facing garden and secure off-street parking.
“The current owners have removed ceilings and floors to make vaulted rooms as well as spectacular double and triple volume areas,” according to the listing with brokerage Marcus Parfitt, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The house got its name about a decade before Mr. Walliams’s tenure.
During the golden years of Britpop, the house was reportedly home to Noel Gallagher the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and main songwriter of the English rock band Oasis. It was named after the band’s 1996 hit “Champagne Supernova.”
“Raucous parties were commonplace, and drunken guests were regularly seen spilling out of the house,” said an article in The Guardian from 1999, when Mr. Gallagher moved out.
“Fans milled around seven days a week, and loutish groupies staggered around in drunken stupors. For an area that prides itself on its exclusive, quiet intellectualism, it was all too much. The collective sigh of relief at Gallagher’s departure was about as deafening as his revelries,” the article said.
Homes and Property first reported the listing.
