Inside home of abused wife Penelope Jackson with family pictures & hot tub in garden as property sells for £450,000

THE luxury home of Penelope Jackson, who stabbed her husband to death after years of abuse, has reportedly sold for £450,000.

Jackson, 66, murdered David, 78, in the two-bedroom property in Berrow, Somerset, advertised for sale online.

Pictures show an immaculate garden outside complete with hot tub, rhododendrons, and an idyllic seating area.

Inside the property, photos of the killer and her husband hang on the walls, looming over potential buyers.

The kitchen where 66-year-old Mrs Jackson fatally knifed David Jackson was also advertised to help sell the house, Daily Mail reports.

One picture shows the Aga which was claimed in court to have been the centre of an argument over burnt bubble and squeak which led to the slaying. 

Jurors heard how Mrs Jackson first slashed across the chest in a bedroom of the couple's house.

After knifing him she told police she had left him for dead on the kitchen floor.

In a conversation recorded by police, Mrs Jackson told an emergency call handler: "He’s in the kitchen bleeding to death with any luck.

"I thought I’d got his heart, but he hasn’t got one then twice in the abdomen. His abdomen is buggered."

The property appears to be a happy, family home, with wedding snaps adorning the living room wall and stacks of books on shelves.

The garden has also been neatly kept and the dining room table appears set for a family meal.

One nearby resident told the Mail: "I'm not sure if the new owners are aware of what happened in there.

I'm not sure if the new owners are aware of what happened in there.

"But I wish them all the best in their new home and that the neighbourhood can move on from this."

Jackson was jailed for life yesterday with a minimum of 18 years — meaning she will be at least 84 before she can be considered for release.

The Ministry of Defence accountant showed no emotion as the jurors came back with their verdict after deliberating for ten hours and 43 minutes.

Family members of Mr Jackson — who had been a lieutenant colonel in the Royal Logistics Corps — burst into tears.

As part of her defence during the two-week trial, she claimed she had been abused by her husband for decades — an allegation David’s family bitterly rejected.

In a statement given to the court, she alleged she had been headbutted, strangled and kicked down a stone staircase by her husband.

She said the “extreme violence” had started following the suicide of the David’s son from his first marriage in 1998.

But David’s family and friends dismissed Jackson’s suggestions she had been the victim of sustained domestic violence and accused her of lying.
