In the Sherlock Holmes stories
Irene Adler's house in London.
- The exact address is: Irene Adler, Briony Lodge, Serpentine Avenue, St. John's Wood. (SCAN, 271)
- Sherlock Holmes described the house as a bijou villa, with a garden at the back, but built out in front right up to the road, two stories. Chubb lock to the door. Large sitting-room on the right side, well furnished, with long windows almost to the floor, and those preposterous English window fasteners which a child could open. (SCAN, 301)
