Shawfield Street

Located just off the King’s Road sits the fashionable Shawfield Street, a collection of terraced mews houses

Number 29 is the former home of P.L. Travers, purchasing the property in 1962 and living their until her death in 1996

An Australian national, Travers emigrated to England in 1924 where she worked as an actress and journalist

Her big break came in 1934 when her now world-renowned book Mary Poppins was first published

Travers went on to write numerous volumes of the Mary Poppins series, with the fifth title Mary Poppins From A to Z the first to be written in her study at 29 Shawfield Street. She would go on to write three further in the house

Infatuated with the story, it was at Shawfield Street that Walt Disney regularly visited to negotiate the purchase the rights to the story

After 14 years of denying his approaches, Travers eventually relented, selling the rights to Mary Poppins for €100,000 + 5% of the movie’s earnings

The house was recently featured in the movie Saving Mr Banks (2013) starring Emma Thompson as P.L. Travers and Tom Hanks as Walt Disney

The Grade II family home is spread over 2,195 sq. ft. comprising of four bedrooms, three bathrooms, three terraces, five entertaining spaces and well sized garden.

It is now on the market for sale at a price of £4.85 million, with Prime London agents Russell Simpson (020 7225 0277)
