George Osborne is returning to Notting Hill to buy a £10million house in west London with fiancé Thea Rogers

Former Chancellor George Osborne has bought a £10m home in the posh heart of West London with his fiancée, Thea Rogers.

The property is located on one of Notting Hill’s most desirable streets and is just a few doors down from the £16.8 million home that David Cameron briefly occupied when he left Downing Street.

It’s also down the street where Mr. Osborne’s parents lived before it was sold in 2016.

With four bedrooms and a stylish kitchen extension, the couple’s new home is sure to be large enough to accommodate their growing family, which will expand when a second child is born in the new year.

Their son Bo was born in July last year.

Mr Osborne, 51, is a partner in boutique investment firm Robey Warshaw and head of the British Museum, which he keeps in London during the week.

He and Miss Rogers, his former chief of staff, spend most weekends in Broughton, a trendy media district in Somerset.

The couple own a £1.6m home that is currently undergoing a major renovation.

They are building a large, coach house-style dining kitchen, which will include demolishing their garage and two storage rooms to return the 223-year-old building to its “authentic Georgian grandeur.”

An Oxford graduate, Ms Rogers started her career at the BBC before moving to government and later became a senior executive at the takeaway company Deliveroo.

She quit the corporate world last year to pursue motherhood, saying, “Now is a great time for me to start a new chapter and spend more time with my baby in the coming months.”

Osborne has sold his family’s former home, the £3.6m six-bedroom home he shared with his ex-wife Frances Osborne two years ago.

The property, which was purchased in 2006 for £1.85 million, was in the heart of Notting Hill. Novelist Frances has remained in the area and lives near her ex-husband’s new address.

Their children, Liberty, 19, and Luke, 21, are in college.

Until they bought their new home a few months ago, Mr Osborne and Mrs Rogers were renting property in the neighborhood for £15,000 a month.

But their new home is something of an upgrade. The house has access to a beautiful public park as made famous in Richard Curtis’ 1999 romantic comedy, Notting Hill starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts.
