Ricky Gervais' house in After Life

This is the house where Ricky Gervais' character, Tony Johnson, lives in the Netflix black-comedy series After Life.

In the TV show, the house is situated in a fictional town called Tambury.

However, in real life, it is located just outside of Hampstead, in the north of London, on a road called Vale of Health.

It appears in multiple episodes throughout the show.

Following the death of his late wife, Lisa, Tony lives here by himself with their pet dog, "Brandy the Dog."

Interestingly enough, Gervais actually lived in Hampstead between 2006 and 2015.

Episode 1, Season 1

Pat the postman

Ricky's character Tony argues with Postman Pat outside of his home in "Tambury".

The argument begins when Pat attempts to hand him his mail instead of walking over to the door and putting it through the letterbox.

In the TV show, the house number is 43. However, in real life, the sign says "Heathdene".

This screenshot is from the very first episode, which was filmed in 2018.

In 2022, it was estimated that the property was worth £2.4 million. This is unsurprising, considering how close it is to the center of London. In real life, this property is more than 23 miles away from the Tambury Gazette newspaper building.
