Marty Feldman's Eccentric House
The house where Marty Feldman and Boy George lived.
Location: The Logs,17-20 Well Road,Hampstead, NW3 1LH
Description: This weird gothic pile of turrets, chimneys, gables and bay windows is Grade II listed and was the residence in the 1960's to comedian Marty Feldman and in the 1990's to singer Boy George.
It was built in 1868 to the design of JS Nightingale in yellow, red, and black brick. It was described by Pevsner as 'a formidable atrocity' and a 'wonderful uncertainty between Gothic and Italian'.
