Has the edgy Brit fashion designer Stella McCartney found a buyer for her four-story London townhouse? The Real Estalker thinks yes: the 1,980-square-foot home, which McCartney bought in 2007 with her husband, Wallpaper* magazine co-founder Alasdhair Willis, seems to be in escrow.

There are good-looking hardware floors (some weathered, some new-looking), two fireplaces, a galley kitchen with butcher-block counters and Shaker-style cabinetry, modern shelving, ample built-ins, French doors leading out to the back patio, and a small glassed-in roof deck accessible from the master suite. Of course, there's an errant antique claw-foot bathtub hanging out in the middle of a non-bathroom, but perhaps that's just another reinterpretation of the term "en suite." Here's the floorplan:
