Peter Capaldi is a Scottish actor who has had many high-profile roles, including the lead part in Doctor Who.

He once owned a home worth more than £1million in a part of the UK that is popular with celebrities.

The Victorian house was then put on the market for a huge £1,537,090 nearly 20 years later, in 2014.

When it was put on the market, the description read: "A beautiful and stylish home offering character and unique features, combining modern with period detail and a studio."

Crouch End is a popular spot for actors to settle down in the UK.

Fellow Doctor Who star David Tennant also lived in Crouch End and Peter spoke of bumping into him in the area before.

Actor James McAvoy lives in a large property in the area with his wife.

It is no surprise so many people choose to settle down in Crouch End as it mixes the liveliness of London with plenty of open space to relax in.

Those in the area can visit the Parkland Walk, a linear nature reserve.

It is also near to the famous entertainment venue Alexandra Palace.

Properties do not come cheap in the area and cost more than the average house in London.

Semi-detached properties were even more expensive, fetching around £1,331,312 over the last year.
