    Peter Pan's London 'home' goes on sale

    LONDON (AFP) - The London house where the Peter Pan classic children's novels are believed to have been written is up for sale, an estate agent said Monday.

    The six-bedroom property opposite Kensington Gardens park in central London has gone on sale for 6.75 million pounds (8.88 million euros, 13.22 million dollars).

    Writer James Matthew (J. M.) Barrie lived in the house and met five boys in Kensington Gardens who inspired his creation at the turn of the 20th century.

    As well as two large living and entertaining rooms the 3,377 square foot (313 square metre) Victorian home has a study, a dining room, a kitchen, while the bedrooms are adjoined by one en suite and a full-size bathroom, as well as two balconies.

    "The house really has caused quite a stir in the market and although it is unique and an incredible opportunity regardless of background, the history really does add an extra dimension," said Will Pitt of Foxtons estate agents.

    "Who wouldn't like to stand in the nursery of Peter Pan? The current owners fell in love with the period features and the bathroom sink is original, as is the dumb waiter," he added.

    Barrie published his first Peter Pan story in 1902, "The Little White Bird". Two years later he wrote another adventure featuring Tinkerbell and Captain Hook, characters which became famous in the subsequent play, novel and film versions.

    He had no children of his own, and his marriage ended after his wife Mary had an affair with another writer in 1909. Barrie died on June 19, 1937 at the age of 77.
