Author of Peter Pan in the World of Sansar
For years when I visit Bayswater in London, I always pass by the House of Sir James Matthew Barrie; The famous author of Peter Pan.
The area was so inspiring for him: Hyde Park just across the street with the Kensington Gardens and the magnificent like eternal Georgian style white buildings surrounding Lancaster Gate and not far from Paddington.
No wonder that Sir Barrie was inspired to write the adventures of Peter Pan & Wendy, there is a certain magic in Bayswater despite of the busy traffic nowadays on Bayswater Road.
Years passed by in seeing not much activity around the house, it looked like deserted but perhaps I was wrong anyway. Untill last year: scaffolding appear around the house and many labourers were working digging under the floor and even in the garden?
It seems that the owners or the new owners got big plans with the Bayswater Road No.100.

I read that during the years they have managed to preserve some of the original 19th century features of the house. For me the building was always a sort of landmark for the area next to the giant estates of The Lancasters.
Soon I will be visiting London again and I am very curious how the building is renovated. Maybe they will enhance the building completely or that some original features may exist along with modern renovation who knows?
It´s a nice oportunity to start myself with a new project within my Westminster London Experience in the VR world of Sansar; The Peter Pan House. This way it will become my tribute to the legendary author of Peter Pan.
I don´t believe it will ever be a sort of museum in RL , so I will make a little museum myself in Sansar.
