A stunning London home that Charles Dickens' publisher bought with the money he made from his novels is on the market for £15million ($19 million).
The property - 10 Ovington Square in Knightsbridge - was owned by Frederic Chapman in the mid 19th century.
His firm published numerous novels including "The Pickwick Papers" and "A Christmas Carol" before Dickens fell out with the firm in 1844.
Dickens returned to the firm in 1859 and they published the remainder of his books including "A Tale of Two Cities" and "Great Expectations."
He also published the works of William Makepeace Thackeray, Robert Browning, Charles Kingsley and Anthony Trollope.
Chapman lived at 10 Ovington Square until his death from influenza in 1895.
The five bedroom home has a gym, communal garden and is now on sale for £15,750,000 ($19,598,475).
It features a sleek underground swimming pool and jacuzzi, gym and has elevator access to all five floors.
Estate agents Alexander Millett listed the house for £15.75 million - equivalent to roughly £117,130 ($153,037) in 1895.
The house also features a balcony overlooking the communal square gardens in front of the house along with an internal terrace offering private outdoor space.
A historical hub for literary figures, Ovington Square was also the home of the Beatles' Apple Corps and Harrisongs companies.
In 1879 Chapman was also briefly neighbors with famed author Oscar Wilde and his mother Jane.
