EL James's New Vacation Home Is Perfect for Christian Grey

E. L. JamesFame and fortune can buy you all the things you've always wanted, though it seemed that Fifty Shades of Grey writer EL James was rather modest -- the only flashy thing we know she afforded herself was a new license plate that read: SXY. I kid you not. But now, with the movie sequel taking shape, James has purchased a fancy beachside property that fits into Christian Grey's style perfectly.


The nearly $2 million abode in Polzeath in North Cornwall sits on a cliff overlooking a beach full of surfers. It is quite the hot spot and where Britain's prime minister David Cameron also spends his holidays. Still, considering how much James has made and the money her husband Niall Leonard -- who is writing the screenplay for Fifty Shades Darker -- will make ... they still have plenty to spare. She's still kind of modest. She clearly saves the risk-taking for her writing.

I wonder if this is where Niall Leonard will finish up the work for Darker? Or maybe James herself needs to hear the pleasant sounds of the waves crashing on the beach so she can pen another book? Please and yes to these things!

But it might be too noisy. There are renovations plans reportedly in the works to make the single-story dwelling into a two-floor palace, complete with stone-gray accents and natural slate paving. Gray is such a dominating color. The master bedroom will be on the newly designed second floor with its very own balcony. The main level will host an open-plan living space. Modern. Sleek. A lot of gray. Sounds like something Christian would love.

Sounds like it's quite an inspiring spot.
