One of the most stunning houses in Hampstead village is up for sale. No 1 Elm Row is a four-storey Georgian house, rich in cultural associations. It was home to D H Lawrence in 1923 and provided the backdrop to his short story The Last Laugh. His writing place was the balcony of what is known as the D H Lawrence room. The house is now home to the artist Tom Merrifield, who uses the top floor as a studio. The rest of the house, which has a drawing room, dining room, family room, study and two bedroom suites, retains its rich period features. Knight Frank & Rutley are asking for offers over pounds 1.3m.
