THE HOME of the notorious fictional character Cruella De Vil, filmed in a country estate just outside Reading, has been valued by a home buying company.

WeBuyAnyHome released the statistics on Englefield House, the Elizabethan-era home that was used as the setting for the fictional 'Hell Hall', the home of the Disney villain in classic-movie 101 Dalmatians, and more recently the prequel movie 'Cruella'.

A spokesman for WeBuyAnyHome said: "One hot new film, with a Reading filming location, came second in the list for cost to rent per calendar month (PCM) and house value.

"Cruella’s ‘Hell Hall’ is estimated to have a monthly rent of around £550,500, and a value of £150,000,000.

Reading Chronicle:

"In 1973, this home would have cost £7,000,000 to buy and around £26,500 to rent PCM — to afford this today, Cruella would need to earn the salary of a fashion designer like Miuccia Prada."

The statistics come alongside a number of other famous homes, including the flat from Only Fools and Horses and Mr Bean's one-bedroom apartment.

The spokesman continued: "By 2021, many of our favourite TV characters would have been priced out of their original homes.

"'Only Fools and Horses’ characters Del Boy and Rodney Trotter may struggle to afford a monthly rent of just over £2000 a month for their three-bed home, a big jump from a rent just shy of £150 in 1981.

"Similarly, Mr Bean, who has no obvious employment, would have to afford a monthly rent of around £1750 for his one-bedroom flat in Highbury, a 486% increase from £299 PCM in 1990."
