kate moss Kate Moss now has literary roots. The 36-year-old British supermodel has purchased a 4-floor, 7-bedroom, 4½-bathroom home in London, once inhabited by legendary Romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge in the 1820s and 1830s. The Highgate Hill residence was owned by Dr. James Gillman, who took in the tortured Coleridge as a houseguest. Coleridge, the author of the classic "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" and an opium addict to boot, died in the house in 1834. The $12.6 million list-price house, which has 6,728 square feet and includes 7 fireplaces, 2 kitchens and a wine cellar, was later the home of novelist and playwright J.B. Priestley. Moss has one daughter, Lila, and is currently married to guitarist Jamie Hince, pictured left, of The Kills.
