DAWN French lives in a jaw-dropping Cornwall home called Point Neptune that has incredible sea views.
The Vicar of Dibley star – who recently returned to the BBC for a series of lockdown specials – lives in the coastal mansion with her daughter Billie and second husband, Mark Bignell.
Dawn and ex husband Sir Lenny Henry moved to the Grade-II listed home in 2006.
The actress revealed at the time that she went on tour with her comedy partner Jennifer Saunders especially to foot the bill for renovations at the property.
And ever since proud owner Dawn has given her fans a peek of her stunning home as she admires her Cornwall surroundings and shares photos of her cooking achievements.
In one such snap, the comedy star shows off her fire pit that overlooks the waves crashing into the cliff below her home.
She jokes as she writes: "Cornwall being awful again #sendhelp".
Speaking to Fern Cotton in 2018, Dawn recalled: “It was in a bit of a state and I thought 'Oh, I'm going to need a bit of dosh to do this up'.
“I called Jennifer and I said, 'Look I've seen this place and I know I want to live there but we've got to go on tour, how about it?' And she said something like 'Oh yes, I'm doing my conservatory, OK yes.'”
Since Lenny and Dawn’s amicable split in 2010, the 62-year-old has remained there and now lives in the property with her second husband Mark.
Earlier this year she reprised her role as the Vicar of Dibley, Geraldine Granger, for the BBC’s Big Night In.
Filmed from her coastal mansion, the Reverend Geraldine Granger appeared on a Zoom call with her parishioners and recalled her fondest memories from over the years.
Although the special slot was filmed from just one room and viewers just got to see the wallpaper featuring a pattern of cream and red flowers.
The author regularly shares photos with fans of inside their home, which often features her pet dogs and cat.
Dawn loves to have fresh flowers on display throughout the house, alongside some more unusual design features, such as a bowl filled with dolls heads that sits on her desk.
Geraldine said: “When I think back I’ve had some difficult moments, that’s for sure. But it’s the happy things I remember like, dancing with Darcey Bussell and joining an idiot and a simpleton in holy matrimony.”
Dawn's massive house spreads over three floors, and lots of outdoor space.
Glimpsing at the little areas she's chosen to show, the author appears to have kept in favour of the seaside theme with lots of nods to nautical touches and cosy fabrics.
Clearly smitten with her animals, her furry friends are never far behind her to snuggle up of relax on a care-worn sofa or cushion.
Decorated in minimal whites and creams, Dawn has chosen to add splashes of colour using lots of fresh flowers and quirky accessories.
