Kate Moss, we hear, has just bought this amazing house in Highgate for close to £8m.

It was designed by poet and visionary William Blake and was later home to the opium addicted poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge – he came here on 1823 with his friend and doctor James Gillman in an attempt to kick his habit but died 11 years later (if Pete Doherty comes to stay he should feel right at home).

Nice - though a bit noisy as it fronts on to North Hill and there's a petrol station nearby (albeit a Georgian one...)...makes me wonder why arab gazillionaires buy those Candy council flats really...though I suppose Highgate village is a bit suburban and old-money-English for them...
Why treat those who call themselves atheists as enemies? Why not simply say to them: ‘We have no quarrel. The “God” whose existence you deny you do well to deny. It is an object among other objects and I deny it also. The necessary ground of all rational thought, on which you and I both depend to make sensible statements, that is what I mean by God.’ Rev Anthony Freeman

So, £8M for a big semi on a busy road near a petrol station in North London ......

She could have bought her mate Davinia Taylor's place for 1.5 m less.

She hid there for a few months when she was going through the cocaine useage investigation so she knows the house well.

1.5 m for a decent slice of Coleridge when packing that babe's cash ... cheap at the price.

Anyway, C's gaff in Highgate is more than just another big semi in N. London.

She's not too far from me. Within borrowing a cup of sugar distance.

Let's all be glad those undeserved millions have been spent in the UK so our own minions as opposed to the Chinese or Americans will be the likely beneficiaries,

That's a fabulous house.

Highgate is a great place to live.

£8m doesn't seem that bad either when you consider the price of flats and small houses in decent London areas.

I'd think a glass table would pretty much satisfy her needs.

A little unfair I think. She was catapulted into megastardom at the age of 16 so has never really known 'real' adult life. I feel a bit sorry for people like that, millions or no millions. It's no wonder many of them end up on drugs or booze.

Poet probably only paid a few shillings for it.

All free movement of labour between countries with vastly disparate GDP's means, is that the labour gravitates to the country paying the highest relative wage; and it was always ever thus.
