Jackie Collins Home
The London home of author Jackie Collins.
Location: Hamilton Terrace, Swiss Cottage
Description: This stunning residence is where the great author Jackie Collins resided from the late 1960's before she returned to Los Angeles in 1982 to write her most famous book, Hollywood Wives.
The Hampstead-born novelist lived here with her second husband, Oscar Lerman (owner of then celebrity hotspot Tramp on Jermyn Street), and daughters Tiffany and Rory. Collins other daughter Tracy from her first marriage to Wallace Austin also resided here.
The beautiful period properties on the wide tree-lined road frequently sell for several million pounds have not seen parties like those that the glamorous writer hosted in the 70s and 80s.
