Fancy living in your own poets corner of exclusive Highgate?
The house where Victorian writer A.E.Housman composed his bucolic 'A Shropshire Lad' poems has just come on the market for £2.5 million.
The poet and scholar wrote his most famous work whilst living in Byron Cottage in Highgate village towards the end of the 19th century.
A blue plaque on the wall outside marks the significance of the Grade II* listed property, which is now on the market with Savills.
Housman lived at the property between 1885 and 1905 while he was studying at University College London, where he accepted a Latin professorship in 1892.
