Bruce Forsyth’s former Totteridge Common home is on the market.

The showbiz legend lived at The Paddocks with his first wife Penny and their three daughters from 1962 to 1971.

He bought the Grade II listed Arts and Crafts house in the star-studded area dubbed the Beverley Hills of North London on the back of a four year stint as host of Sunday Night at the London Palladium.

For the past 19 years the property, designed by Collcutt in 1885, has been owned by Daniel Nabarro, founder of online lingerie company Figleaves.

Nabarro’s redevelopment of the house included a two-storey extension to make way for three reception rooms and a master suite.

The six-bedroom house has a living area of nearly 9,000 sq ft including staff accommodation.

The seven-and-a-half-acre garden has a swimming pool and a stable block but on party days the ménage comes into its own. There is room for 44 cars and a marquee for 300 guests. If push comes to shove, a further 220 limos can be directed to an adjoining field.

The house is for sale through Statons for £5.5m.
