The Little Venice property owned by John Inman, the late actor best known for starring in the BBC’s Are You Being Served?, is currently on the market.

After playing the camp Mr. Humphries in the sitcom from 1972 to 1985, Inman was voted BBC’s Personality Of The Year.

Living at Robert Close until his death in 2007, the famous pantomime dame left the property to his civil partner of 33 years, Ron Lynch, who has himself now passed away.

Robert Close is a three bedroom townhouse set within a quiet, private gated road, just moments from Regents Canal in the heart of Little Venice.
