The Hackford Road estate is an end-of-terrace, three-bed period property with a back garden and in need of full renovation with a starting price of £475,000.

Van Gogh arrived in London, at the age of 20 to start work at an art dealership in Southampton Street and from August of 1873 he lived at 87 Hackford Road. There is an official blue plaque on the front wall that commemorates his stay.

The house was owned by a Mrs Ursula Loyer who lived there with her daughter. Scholars think that Eugeniemay have been Van Gogh’s first love and inspiration for some of his early work.

The famous sketch of Hackford Road which is the earliest surviving drawing from Vincent’s English periodwas found among the possessions of Eugenie Loyer’s grand daughter, Mrs Kathleen Maynard, and is now in the Van Gogh museum, in Amsterdam.

The Savills Auction will be held at The Northumberland Hotel, 8 Northumberland Avenue, London, WC2N 5BY.
