George Best lived here
The former home of George Best and Lady Wilde.
Legendary Northern Ireland dribbler George Best (22 May 1946 – 25 November 2005) bought a flat here in 1984 for £55,000, and used it as his London home for the rest of his life.
The former Manchester United footballer could often be found between here and the Phene Arms round the corner.
Lady Jane Francesca Wilde, Oscar Wilde's mother, and a poet and essayist in her own right, was a previous tenant here a century previous.
