New York: English author Charles Dickens’ seaside vacation home in Broadstairs is up for sale in the market for 2 million pounds.

The Victorian novelist spent most of his summers at Bleak House, a Grade-II listed building in the southern English town of Broadstairs.

Dickens wrote ‘David Copperfield’ in the clifftop house, and the property was the inspiration for his 1852 novel "Bleak House," the Kent Messenger reported.

"Bleak House is one of only a few properties in the world to be lived in by Charles Dickens, one of the world`s most famous authors, and this naturally gives the house scarcity value,” the New York Post quoted James Grillo, associate director at realtors Chesterton Humberts, as saying.
