I already showed you the ivy-covered cottage from the classic Merchant-Ivory film Howards End. Today we’re taking a look at another property from the movie: 6 Wickham Place. This is where the Schlegel sisters, played by Emma Thompson and Helena Bonham-Carter, lived.
According to the real-estate blog BrickWork, Wickham Place — which is actually 6 Victoria Square, just north of Victoria Station — is on the market for £3,250,000. Here’s how the house looked in the film:
In the movie, the Schlegel sisters were born and raised here. Sadly, they lose the house because the lease had run out and the landlord has plans to tear it down and replace it with “modern” flats.

How the room appeared in the movie:
It looks like the dining room (shown in the real estate listing) was walled off to enlarge another room on the other side of it:
The dining room in the film is larger and appears to have been filmed in a different part of the house (or on a set):
The bedroom and bath shown in the listing are updated and modern:
