House hunting with Leona Lewis

Having sold her Hollywood Hills mansion two years after it was put on the market, rumours have surfaced that Leona Lewis is swapping Hollywood for Hackney. Her first property saw her occupy four bedrooms and four bathrooms and practice her piano-playing in an entrance hall under a glitzy chandelier. She’s a fan of pure, white decor and hid away a gym, bedroom and bathroom in a guesthouse surrounded by plenty of green space.

But despite her wealth, she’s a Hackney girl at heart, saying that, “it’s such a cool place and very vibrant”.  Seeing as she’s comfortable there and her family and friends still have properties in the area, she may very well be on her way home. And surely having lived in LA for so long, she will place her own Hollywood stamp on any Hackney property she purchases.

Assuming she wants to make money on her $2,073,500 sale but still live like a star, I expect that she’ll be on the lookout for a property around the £1 million mark. So where could she live?

Well how about here?

My pick would be Warneford Street – in a home with an asking price of £1,100,000. I expect some clever negotiation would secure the sale for less and she wouldn’t have to sacrifice any bedrooms in the main home.

The master bedroom has integrated storage through large fitted wardrobes, a true lifesaver if Leona’s made the most of the US shopping malls! With the boutiques of Victoria Park nearby, she can easily stock up on London’s award winning fashion and make use of the additional three bedrooms to house any extra clothing.

It’s going to be a shock re-adapting to our climate so she’ll welcome three reception rooms which come complete with feature fireplaces. They’re bound to create a cosy atmosphere and help counteract the white walls during those cold, winter nights.

As for the kitchen, it’s spacious and modern. I imagine the pink paint will be swapped for a neutral white, to replicate the decor scheme in her LA pad. Leona may be fashion conscious but she doesn’t seem to be much of a home trend follower! She prefers to leave the colour and pattern experiments to the rest of us.

During those warm summer evenings, she’ll be able to pen song lyrics while sitting in a well-maintained garden. There’ll be plenty of plants to stimulate her senses and a handy wall and high-rise fence will shield her from the waiting paparazzi. There’s even a private entrance to help her lie low.

The only downside seems to be the bathroom, which pales in comparison to her previous property.

There’s no shower in sight but with her millions, she could easily hire a tradesman to help bring her bathroom vision to life.
