A recently refurbished historical home in Primrose Hill once owned by Britain’s premier war photographer could be yours to own

The Primrose Hill property once occupied by one of Britain’s first war photographers is on the market for £2.1 million.

The Victorian stucco terrace played home to pioneering photographer Roger Fenton, as denoted by the English Heritage blue plaque affixed to the front of the building.

Originally trained as a lawyer and a painter, Fenton took up photography during the “golden age” of the 1850s.

His body of work takes in a broad scope, from landscape to architecture, documentary style to staged artistic tableaux, although he is best known for his photographs of the Crimean War.

His former home on Albert Terrace has recently been extensively refurbished and the two bed lateral apartment now includes all the modern conveniences of air conditioning, under floor heating and an integrated home music system.

A gadget-filled kitchen includes an instant boiling water tap and Gaggenau 400 series integrated appliances including an oven, full surface induction cooktop and warming drawer.
