Couple Who Live In Dennis Nilsen's Old House Say They 'Love' Their Home

Couple Who Live In Dennis Nilsen's Old House Say They 'Love' Their Home

The couple who bought the house in which Dennis Nilsen stored dead bodies say they 'love' their home despite its grisly past.

The serial killer, who was recently depicted by David Tennant in ITV drama Des, lived in Cricklewood in North London where he killed a series of men from 1978 to 1983.

Unlike many other homes that have murderous histories, the Melrose Avenue property is still there - but it has been completely refurbished and now has a swish, modern look throughout.

Speaking to The Sun, the couple who bought the two-bed flat in 2016 for £493,000, said they don't think about the property's history.

Mathilde and Bruno have made the flat into their dream home, and are confident they got a good deal.

Mathilde told the newspaper: "Nothing changed around how we feel about our house.

"We love our house, it feels good to live in it, we have sun everyday being south facing.

"The garden has amazing beautiful wildlife. We never think about the history.

"We went through full refurbishment when we bought because it was a bit old.

The couple even tuned into the ITV drama and told the news outlet that they were impressed with Tennant's performance as the chilling serial killer and felt the three-part series had given them a better insight into the man who previously lived in their home.

Speaking back in 2018, Bruno told The Sun that the house's grim history may have been part of the reason they got such a bargain.

He explained: "We were struggling to buy - everywhere was too expensive.

"Then this place came up and it was everything we were looking for.

"It has a great location by the park, two bedrooms, its own garden and a ten-minute walk from the Tube.

"The first thing the agent said was, 'Have you Googled the property?'

"So we looked it up and read all about the history.

"But it was all 35, 40 years ago. For us it was never an issue.

"We know a lot of people would not live here. But from the moment people see what the place looks like, it puts that to rest."
