Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh's home is on Christchurch Street in London. In 1937 Olivier bought this home, Durham Cottage, in Chelsea as a retreat for him and his lover, Vivien Leigh. Both were still married at the time and sought a quiet place to carry out their relationship. The two were eventually married on August 31, 1940 at the Santa Monica ranch of actor Ronald Colman. They kept the cottage until 1956, when their failing marriage forced them to give up the property. They were divorced in 1960.
