But behind the spooky facade there’s a bright and modern three-bedroom apartment. The kitchen is bathed in natural light, and the sweeping Victorian front room is decorated in fresh colours. But don’t worry – there’s still a spooky brick fireplace to snuggle up in front of when you’re watching scary movies. Available through Knight Frank for £549,950
