João Botelho's Iconic London Home Is Up For Sale

His Victorian end-of-terrace dates back to 1890 and is packed with drama...

The striking home of João Botelho has just come on to the market. Aside from gracing the pages of Livingetc magazine (you can tour his home here (opens in new tab)), he also welcomed us into his home earlier this year via this House Tours Open Door video chat (opens in new tab) with our editor Sarah Spiteri – so it's safe to say that his dramatic home is one that we simply can't get enough of.

João tells "Graham Road is a uniquely-magical home designed to perfection where we lived happily for 16 years. Managing such a large property as well as our business ins’t an easy task so we decided it was time for a fresh start and experience something new. We will miss Graham Road dearly but we are equally excited for our next journey."
