Ex: Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi

Controlling Charles Saatchi was an "interesting" addition to the Square. When he moved in, neighbors complained he was hammering nails into the wall in the middle of the night. He had been hanging his art.

Nigella Lawson came later. And an extensive refurbishment.

Catering companies often parked outside their home. Saatchi was regularly seen wandering around Waitrose buying himself packets of pre-cut fruit.

One day Saatchi decided his neighbours were taking too long to refurbish and tried to dismantle their scaffolding himself.

The Saatchis put the flat on the market for £ 36m. It sold to Candy and Candy for £ 21m.

Then started to create chaos for their new neighbours with their own extensive building project.

So what did their love nest look like?

The window is on the ground floor. We are unsure whether the art was created by her children or by the artists Charles Saatchi collects and displays in the near-by Saatchi Gallery.
