You Can Now Buy Tommy Shelby’s House From 'Peaky Blinders' IRL

You Can Now Buy Tommy Shelby’s House From 'Peaky Blinders' IRL

Peaky Blinders returns to screens next week for its sixth season, and excitement levels are high.

Some fans of the show have been watching loyally ever since the series first launched in 2013, and by this point many feel so attached to the Birmingham gang leader that it's almost like they've lived in the Shelby estate alongside Tommy, aka Cillian Murphy, and the rest of his family since they acquired it.

But what if we told you that you actually could live there? Yep, the Shelby home could be your *actual* home.... if you have half a million pounds to spare, that is.

Arley Hall - or Warwickshire based Arrow House as it is known fictionally on screen - is now available to buy on Right Move IRL, for £550,000.

The red brick grade II Cheshire property - which has also featured in Real Housewives of Cheshire and Antiques Roadshow - first made an appearance in Peaky Blinders in March 2017, during the third season, as Tommy's fortunes sky rocketed.

And the rooms will certainly ring a bell for many die hard fans. Its library is used as Tommy's study, while the gallery is best known as the Shelby's grand dining hall.

You might remember the Shelby's being arrested in the study, or Arthur or Alfie Solomon's stand-off, which also took place on the grounds.

Before filming commenced, the property was decked out with bespoke portraits, 1920s furniture and set designers painted the halls dark green in true Tommy Shelby style - but it has now returned to its original state.

As you walk in, there's a spacious entrance hall, which was once the property's game larder. The ground floor then boasts a dining room, kitchen and two living rooms, all of which have high ceilings and period features.

Meanwhile, upstairs there's a spacious bathroom and four bedrooms, and outside residents will own a private walled garden, two garages and impressive leafy grounds where you can watch the Peaky Blinders stars in action.

"They do a lot of filming here at night, it's quite a spectacle," resident of the property for 20 years, James Wardhaugh said.

"They shoot scenes right outside my living room window and sometimes I'm just a matter of yards away from the action. They usually film here for about a month at a time and the place is like its own little village.

"It's really interesting and they're happy for us to watch, so long as we don't interfere.

"I remember they once had some kind of horse racing scene shot outside so there were loads of horses around in the courtyard."

He added: "It's great fun, they have hundreds of extras. The scale is quite amazing, the crowd scenes are really big.

"They often film through the night, and you can see the actors practising their lines and waiting for the director to tell them where to go and what to do."

What's that...Peaky Blinders spoilers before the show airs? Who has £550,000 we can borrow?
