Lorraine Chase has put the £1.8million Grade II-listed Georgian mansion that she bought for £85,000 up for sale.

The four-bedroom property, in a conservation area of Camberwell, has been her home since 1978 and is now on the market for £1.85million. 

The elaborately decorated Grade II semi is on sale with Rightmove who have called it 'extraordinary' on their property website.

A source said: 'Lorraine's house is one of the most desirable in the area and is decorated to fit her colourful style.

'It has a lot of original features and is a combination of modern and period - with a touch of panto thrown in.

'It is unique and stuffed full of Lorraine's life over the last 40 years or more.'

Properties in the Camberwell conservation area are normally snapped up quickly and recently one in Camberwell Grove went for £1.65m.

Lorraine put the house on the market in September - almost a decade after she last tried to sell the wood-panelled Georgian pad.

The rigthmove website states: 'Extraordinary Grade II Georgian Four Bed Semi in Conservation Area.'

The site showcases the property with 35 glossy pictures, illustrating a vast array of ornaments, nick-nacks, a dressing room crammed with clothes and even an Impala's head.

Lorraine bought the house for £85,000 in 1978 with her earnings from the hugely popular series of Campari adverts, where she became known for her strong cockney accent and frequent use of cockney slang. Pictured is the bathroom, complete with bathtub and wooden flooring

The website continues: 'The original cook's range remains in the lower ground level of this wonderful home on Camberwell Grove.

'Such features are rarely found in these magnificent properties, and many rooms here enjoy original fireplaces too.

Lorraine also owned a cottage near Leeds, which she bought in 2003 while starring for three years in ITV1's Emmerdale. It is not known if she still owns it

'With a walk-in cellar, double bedrooms, rambling walled garden, conservatory, lower ground kitchen, dining room, utility room and vast double reception, this house ticks all the boxes of modern functionality while retaining the authenticity admired in period homes.

'Camberwell Grove falls inside a Conservation Area due to the impressive collection of Regency and Georgian houses lining it.'

It continues: 'Step inside to find a panelled foyer with coat and umbrella space before double doors open into the main living area.

'Thoughtfully opened up, this room has a double aspect and two main sitting areas where period fireplaces (with marble surrounds) take centre stage of each.

'Alcoves have bookshelves and cupboards already fitted and the original staircase falls between these two areas comfortably.

'Beautiful casement windows to the rear overlook the mature garden and French doors from the left side of the room takes you out through the conservatory. Presently this room encompasses a large office area with no trouble at all, such is it's generous proportion.

'Taking the stairs down (there's a deep, lit understairs cupboard), you find a respectably sized kitchen. This is a large room whose windows face towards the street.

To the right is the door into the original cellar, a really good size and full height.

'A formal dining room sits on the
