But the property in Turnchapel Mews, London also features a stunning surprise – even for those who aren't interesting in writing a masterpiece.

The home, which sits in a private gated spot between Clapham Common and Battersea, features huge, light rooms, three bathrooms, and even a terrace.

The outdoor space covers 90 feet.

Estate agents say the unusual apartment is spread across the top floor of four terrace houses and the ground floor of one.

It covers 4,077 square feet.

Beneath the loft-style ceiling are five bedrooms, three bathrooms and spacious dining and drawing rooms.

The apartment is on sale priced at £3.95million with Russell Simpson.

Roald Dahl is one of the world's best-loved children's authors. He wrote classics including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach.

But Dahl, who died in 1990, was also a spy, a fighter pilot, a chocolate historian and a medical inventor.
