A home that once belonged to author Charles Dickens has hit the market. The six-bedroom Grade II listed property in Broadstairs has been renamed Bleak House and is also home to a Dickens museum. The author wrote part of his novel David Copperfield and the BBC reports he also is believed to have planned Bleak House there.
The property was built in 1801 and was constructed as the residence of the fort captain during the Napoleonic Wars and the lower level includes prison cells. The home's study, where Dickens wrote has ocean views. It is listed at £2 million.
