Hard Times for Bleak House....Dickens seaside villa has its asking price slashed by a whopping £2.7million.<br />
<br />
Please Sir, can i have less!...A clifftop mansion that was the home of author Charles Dickens is now a bargain even Ebeneezer Scrooge would be happy with - as the property is on the market for less than half the price tag it had last year.<br />
<br />
Bleak House, which sits high on the cliffs at Broadstairs overlooking the Kent coast, is where Dickens spent summers from the 1830s through to the 1850s.<br />
<br />
He wrote David Copperfield (1851) here and planned Bleak House, with this property later renamed after that 1853 novel to represent its connection to the author. <br />
<br />
The Grade II listed house was up for grabs for £5.2m in March last year but the owners are keen for a quick sale and the price has now dropped to just £2.5m.
