Rambling through the Hampstead home celebrity chef Jamie Oliver shares with his wife Jools, are their 5 children. We share a glimpse into the lifestyle of the couple who reportedly spent GBP8.9million (AUD15.5million) to purchase the property in 2015.
The mansion and home to their growing brood has 7 bedrooms, loads of original architectural features and oodles of charm.
Life in the big family home goes on around Jamie’s punishing travel schedule as he and Jools bring up their family of 5 children, who range in age from 16 down to 2 years old. With plenty of room to run around in, it seems the home is always filled with love and laughter.
As for all of us, the home continues to change and grow with the family, with some rooms more practical than showy, whereas others such as the master bedroom and bathroom have seen the full decorating treatment.
A self-confessed lover of vintage and retro furniture and toys, Jools has her own kids clothing range exclusive to Mothercare in the UK. Their home is a mixture of collected pieces, indulgent designer buys and the jumble of family-work life mix.
Take a peek inside their home via the lovely candid snaps posted by Jools on Instagram.
