Roald Dahl grew up in Bexley. There, the late author of children’s modern classics including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG and Matilda regularly stayed with friends at Flint Cottage when he returned to the area to do readings for youngsters at the local library.

Now five-bedroom Flint Cottage, built in 1931, is for sale and remains the only flint-built home in Bexley Village.

In impressive grounds that originally belonged to Oxford University, it’s a five-minute walk from Bexley station, with main line trains to Blackheath, London Bridge, Waterloo East, Cannon Street and Charing Cross.

This character home in a south-east London commuter hotspot is on the market at £825,000 through Robinson Jackson.
