Game Of Thrones Star Sean Bean House On Market For £6million

A Grade II listed mansion in North London that once belonged to the Game of Thrones star Sean Bean has gone on sale with a £6million price tag.

The 58-year-old British actor, who played Ned Stark in the smash hit HBO series, bought the luxurious house in Totteridge, where he lived with his second wife, Abigail Cruttenden, for £1.8million around 20 years ago.

The plush pad, which has parts that date back to the start of 19th Century, boasts eight bedrooms, six bathrooms and two kitchens, all set across three floors and situated on 1.5 acres of land.

There’s also a tennis court, which presumably helped the star to stay in shape for his high-profile TV and film roles.

Bean, who has also starred in the Lord of the Rings and James Bond movies, met Ms Cruttenden on the set of the period drama Sharpe, on which he made his name in the ’90s.

The former couple, who have a daughter, Evie, now 18, married in 1997 and divorced in 2000.

The 58-year-old, who has been married five times,  first purchased the property in Totteridge, North London, for £1.8m, about 20 years ago. He lived there with his second wife Abigail Cruttenden

Recently refurbished, the mansion has period features including elegant fireplaces, high ceilings, ceiling cornices and stripped wood floors.

There’s also an orangery and a wine cellar in addition to the two garages and a greenhouse.

While it has ample period charm, the home also has all the mod-cons one would expect when splashing £6million on a new home.

The bespoke, contemporary kitchen is by Doca, and boasts integrated Siemens appliances.

Beyond the peaceful 1.5 acre plot, the village of Totteridge is characterised by its quaint streets and sprawling properties – despite being just 10 miles out of London.

It’s in the north London borough of Barnet – a popular choice with celebrities.

Football manager Arsene Wenger lives in Totteridge, and Spice Girl Emma Bunton lives in nearby Hadley.

Former One Direction star – and boyfriend of supermodel Gigi Hadid – Zayn Malik, also owns a home in Barnet.

So there’s every chance the new owner might bump into a famous face or two while exploring their new neighbourhood.

Estate agent Lawrence Henry, of Statons in Barnet said of the property: ‘This a wonderful family home full of immense charm and character set in stunning landscaped gardens in one of the areas most sought after locations.

‘Historical homes of this nature rarely stay on the market for long. This is a once in lifetime opportunity to have a home like this.’

Father-of-three Bean, who is now married to his fifth wife, 32-year-old former nanny Ashley Moore, now divides his time between LA and the UK, where he has a property in Hampstead.

That came after first marriage to Debra James, a hairdresser, came in 1981, when he was just 21. He then married Melanie Hill in 1990 who he was with for seven years, and are parents to daughters Lorna, 30, and Molly, 26.

Sean enjoyed a short-lived marriage to fourth wife Georgia Sutcliffe, who he married in 2008 and divorced in 2011, before meeting Ashley in 2013.
