Best known is the house of Howard Carter (1874-1939) in the Theban necropolis, where he lived when he discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, but it was in this much more luxurious home, located in South Kensington (London) next to the Royal Albert Hall, where he lived comfortably during the thirties and until the end of his life , after having made what is probably the most sensational find in the history of archeology.

The sumptuous house located at Albert Court, on Prince Consort Road, is on sale for 9,750,000 pounds (about 11 million euros), according to the Daily Mail website. The real estate agency Russell Simpson explains to National Geographic that Albert Court “is one of the first residential buildings with large and luxurious apartments built expressly in London, around 1890”, that is, when Carter was still young.
