How much would Sherlock's 221B home cost?


Forensic experiments, scattered files, an unavoidable smell of pipe tobacco - the property of 221B Baker Street would be best described as a fixer-upper.

While the fictional residence of a certain mister Sherlock Holmes isn't up for grabs, that hasn't stopped the inquisitive minds of Movoto Real Estate from pondering the possibilities of such a sale.

By scouring through the details provided by Sir Author Conan Doyle’s original work and the BBC's hugely popular modern adaptation, the estate agents have put together a fictional valuation of the property based on the approximate size and local market values.

The results? You'll need to start saving if you want a piece of literary history.
