At 14, Cannon Place, Hampstead.
Was once occupied by the dramatist and actor Sir Gerald Du Maurier.
The House dates back to the early eighteenth century.
Two cannons form road posts outside the gate and other cannons are dotted around the garden.
The cannons are said to have been introduced by Sir James Melville, secretary of The East India Company and friend of the other Hampstead nautical notary, Admiral Barton at Grove House.
A former owner grew all the flowers mentioned in Shakespeare's plays and there is a strange oriental tree still in existence.
The two little figures in the courtyard provide interesting viewing!
