Freddie's house

Postby TheHero » Thu Aug 03, 2017 11:38 pm

It have sometimes wondered why Freddie stayed in
this house. I mean, look at those other houses surrounding his house. Those living in the top flats had panorama view on whatever was going on in his garden.

You can almost feel the staring by looking at those houses, and how they bend around his house like a theatre. :?

I always thought he enjoyed a private life ?

Besides those houses look very ugly too. With all those money, why didn't he move to a better place? :shock:








He was lucky that drones wasn't a thing Joe Public owned back in the 80s.

i would say he wanted to live in central London, and this is about as good as he could get with his money in the day

wonder what's it worth today

recall it being said it was worth £4M when he died.

that's probably £16m in todays money at least

I think most of Fred's activities took place indoors, only the cats used the garden :lol:

Maybe the view from the surrounding buildings wasn't as good for peering into Freddie's garden as it looks here, especially with some tactically placed trees and such. I guess it may have looked different today than in the 80s.
