Hermione Russell, of sellers Russell Simpson, said: ‘This gorgeous apartment on Portobello Road is providing a purchaser the chance to own a piece of cinematic history.

‘The beautiful triplex apartment, alongside its iconic location, is truly a one-of-a-kind sales opportunity.

‘Alongside this notable home is on one of the most famous roads in area, right in the hub of Notting Hill with several shops, bars, restaurants and the market close by.’

Although the building’s exterior was used in the film, scenes indoors were filmed in a private studio.

The building was formerly the Nicholls Antique Arcade and then went on to be a furniture shop called Gong.

It is now a gift shop but retains the iconic blue facade, which has remained in place since filming took place in 1998.

The shop was home to a variety of major scenes including Roberts’ character’s famous confession of love.
