45 Albert Square (Rosedene) is a house on Albert Square, Walford. It is the home of the Beale family and also was once the home of the Fowler family. It is also the scene where Lucy Beale was murdered.


In 1935 newlyweds Albert Beale and Lou Beale moved into No 45 Albert Square. The previous occupants are unknown. From 1936 to 1945, Lou and Albert had several children. In 1988, Pauline and Arthur Fowler inherited the house from Lou Beale after she died.

In 2006 after Pauline Fowler passed away, Martin inherited the house on condition that he separated from Sonia. Martin stayed with Sonia so Ian Beale inherited the house. He later moved into the home with his loving 4th wife Jane Beale and his 3 children Peter BealeLucy Beale and Bobby Beale.

Jane left Ian and Peter left Walford. Not long after Lucy left and it was only Bobby and Ian left. One year after Lucy left Walford, Ian fell in love with Mandy Salter and she moved on. In January 2012, Lucy returned to Walford and found out that he was getting married to Mandy. Before there wedding, Ian kicked Lucy out and then Mandy decided to leave. Lucy moved back in and Ian was so devastated that he left Walford without telling anyone.

Lucy was left in charge of all the business, the home and the bills. There was a newcomer into Walford. It was Derek Branning son. He helped out Lucy after what Derek had been doing to him. In the end Lucy asked Joey to move in.

Ian was found and returned to Walford. Lucy would not let him in and after a couple of weeks of living with the Mitchell Family, Lucy allowed him to move back in on one condition, that he signed everything over to her. Ian then signed everything over to her on Tuesday 14 August 2012 ( Premiered Friday 17 August 2012). Ian took back the ownership of the businesses and the Beales' property empire in 2013. He is the owner of the house.

The Current Sleeping Situation in the Beales house is that Ian sleeps Downstairs in his room, Lauren and Louie have the 2 Bedrooms on the first floor and Kathy is in the Attic Room
