Arthur Dent's house is where Arthur Dent lived before he embarked on his tremendous sojourn across time and space. It was situated on the end of a village in the West Country, where it was alongside a good amount of farmland.
Arthur had lived there for three years after moving away from London, where he found life excessively stressful. Later on, he does return to this house for a brief period of time.
The house itselfEdit
The house was made of brick, looked rather squarish and squattish and had four windows on its front. Generally speaking, its proportions were almost entirely unappealing. It was roughly thirty years old when it was bulldozed.
Arthur's bedroom was small with a faded carpet and old wallpaper. There was a washbasin, a chair with a tatty dressing gown slung over it and a window with the curtains drawn. Near the exit leading south was a phone.
