Long Description:

The Living in London blog, near the bottom, tells us:

The Old Police Station - so-called because it was the local police station from 1846 to 1993 - was converted into a magnificent private house, with pretty first floor balconies and French windows, in 1993. It was officially 'opened' by Sir Paul Condon, the Metropolitan Commissioner of Police, in 1993. Ronnie Biggs, the Great Train robber, spent one night here. Nowadays the proceeds of the robbery wouldn't be enough to buy the place.
