“- Ok. so what does ‘just over the street’ mean. give it to me in yards.

– Eighteen yards. That’s my house there.”

Will Thacker (Hugh Grant) and Anna Scott (Julia Roberts)

Running a travel book bookstore, Will Thacker crosses paths with international star Anna Scott (Julia Roberts). A first time in her shop, a second time at a street corner where he spills an orange juice on her.

He invites her to cool off in her house, a few steps away, not failing to specify that this is the house with the blue door, seen earlier in the feature film when Will returns home.

Behind it lies a hell of a mess, the consequence of a roommate between the bookseller and the eccentric Spike (Rhys Ifans).

First ignored by all and then beset by journalists, where Spike does not fail to show off his athletic body, the residence is inseparable from this mythical romantic film.

The apartment with the blue door has been estimated at 1.3 million pounds since the film’s release. A nice sum.

282 Westbourne Park Rd

282 Westbourne Park Road is famous mainly for the blue door seen in the movie Notting Hill.

This building was chosen by the producers of the film mainly because it was the personal home of Richard Curtis, the writer of Notting Hill.

When he left his home, the price of this residence went up to £1.3 million.
