The 'Addams' Family selling their home with Homely.


Surely you remember the Addams family and their love for all things a little different and even frightening! Now, you can get involved in a bit of history and own a home, that is very close to the original! Located in Paddington and supported by a rich and colourful history, 284 Moore Park Road was built during the 1800's as a farmhouse before being converted into a gentleman's residence in 1873.

With a tightly held provenance, 'Verulam' (the ancient name for London) has been lovingly held by one family since 1924 and offers a unique and exciting opportunity to restore and return to its former glory.
