The current Lady Lloyd-Weber is horse-made Madeleine Gurdon, and they live in Chester Square. Although Lloyd Weber owned a house in Eaton Square before that, he doesn't seem to have lived in it.

To place him as a resident we have to go way back to late '80s - the decade that taste forgot - and his rather flashy show-biz second wife Sarah Brightman.
|This must have been the 80s version of Faux Country House? The Greek vases are fake too.|
|Those of us that read books certainly don't shelve them that way. Didn't someone else write The Lady in Red? Silly me. She wasn't a Lady, was she. The piano is forgivable as a tool of the trade, but the flowers are not.|
|We assume this is meant to be 'romantic'? At least it is taking place in the kitchen and we're spared lolling on a bed.|
|The decorator - and we assume a decorator was involved as who else could create so much bad taste - seems to have forgotten to tell the builders not to wallpaper Lloyd Webber. At least Brightman's bush seems to be almost under control.|
|This seems to be a second baby grand. And a Chesterfield upholstered in velvet. Paintings hung too low, but then so are the ceilings.|
The flat has since been modernised and de-Dynasty-ised.
By a strange coincidence, we think that it is the same flat that the current owners are sub-letting by the night through Air B'n'B ... very unusual for Eaton Square, and a "snip" at £1029 per night.
