A suburban house once owned by notorious madam Cynthia Payne where she ran Britain’s most notorious brothel has been turned into luxury flats on sale for £399,000 each.

The large property in Ambleside Avenue, Streatham, south London has been divided into a number of flats with agents Marsh and Parsons citing the high standard of their ‘period conversion’, their proximity to Tooting Bec Gardens – but failing to mention their long association with the notorious sex den.

Cynthia Payne (above) was known as 'Madam Cyn' and was convicted of running a disorderly house at her trial in 1980 and ended up serving four months in Holloway prison

The building first came to national prominence in 1978 when a police raid discovered Payne had been providing ‘personal services’ to a large number of wealthy clients. They covertly monitored the house over 12 days saw 249 men and 50 women enter and leave.

When they raided it those taking part in sexual activity in Ambleside Avenue were said to have included a peer of the realm, vicars, barristers, ex-police officers, politicians and bank managers as well as a cross-dressing former RAF squadron leader.

Payne died in 2015 aged 82 and her colourful funeral saw mourners dressed in French maid outfits and as policemen and her coffin decorated with flowers spelling out 'SEX'

A contemporary press cartoon depicted a vicar in bed with a prostitute when he’s confronted by a uniformed police officer and says: ‘I demand to see my solicitor. He’s in the bedroom next door.’

It would emerge that Payne had been charging her elite clientele £25, which was exchanged for a ‘luncheon voucher’ – a token that entitled the bearer to have sex with any of the women in the house.

Madam Cyn, as she was known, was convicted of running a disorderly house at her trial in 1980 and ended up serving four months in Holloway prison.

The experience didn’t deter her and she was raided again in 1986. The resulting court case saw her acquitted but received such widespread coverage that she became a household name, going on to become a minor celebrity and make appearances on shows like The Dame Edna Experience.

She died in 2015 aged 82 and her colourful funeral saw mourners dressed in French maid outfits and as policemen and her coffin decorated with flowers spelling out ‘SEX’. 

Her old home has been extensively developed internally to create a number of residences, two of which are currently on the market, both at £399,000. Others have already been sold

The Streatham house was sold soon after her death and is thought to have raised over a million.

It’s since been extensively developed internally to create a number of residences, two of which are currently on the market, both at £399,000. Others are understood to have been already sold.

Marsh and Parsons were contacted for comment.
