Winifred Flemming's home where she has lived for 77 years. A woman who has lived in the same house for nearly EIGHT DECADES has seen the value of her property rise from £800 - to £550k. See SWNS story SWSYold. Winifred Flemming, 106, bought her home in West Wickham, Kent after the end of World War Two in 1945. She is believed to be Britain's oldest homeowner and, despite 77 years in the same property, she is shutting down calls to move into assisted living. The pensioner claims she's still "fighting fit" and able to look after herself - and says there is no place she'd rather live. Winifred, known as Win, purchased the home for less than £1,000 - and it's now estimated the property is worth at least 550 times that. The centurion employs carers who attend a few times a week to assist her with washing and house work, and a gardener to maintain her front and back lawn. The few hours of help a week has been enough for her to live comfortably at home for the past decade, and she has no plans to move anytime soon.
