Charles DickensCharles Dickens, the British writer famed for his novel “David Copperfield”, Dicken’s former seaside home has gone for sale for two million pounds, an estate agent said on Monday.

The cliff side house in Broad stairs, in the southern English county of Kent, was built in 1801 and has six bedrooms, and is on the market for 2.2 million Euros.

The residence of the fort was built during the Napoleonic Wars and originally named ‘Fort House”, the estate agent said, but this was later changed to ‘Bleak House’ - the name of one of Dickens’ most famous novel.

The house has been refurbished and boasts a gym along with prison cells and a museum on the ground floor.
