A Watch Legend's London Home, Estate of the Day
Sometimes a house is just where someone lives. Other times a person's home becomes an extension of personality. Today's home in London, England belonged to Severin Wunderman, a man well-known to those with a love of watches. Wunderman, who died this past summer at the age of 69, built the Gucci watch franchise and then later went on to buy the Swiss brand Corum. Ever wonder about the origin of Corum skull designs? A peek into Wunderman's library might hold the answer, skulls are proudly displayed on the shelves. The eight-bedroom home in the Chelsea area is deliciously quirky, full of both grandeur and eccentricity and decorated with art that reflects Wunderman's varied interests. The home also includes a gothic "hobbit house" in the garden. It was originally listed at £15.5million and now the asking price is £10.5million.
