The former home of Winston Churchill is now available for purchase at a price of £22.9 million.
Located in the prestigious Knightsbridge area of London, in a very short distance from Kensington Gardens, this house with an area of about 600 m2 has seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. As stated in the official listing, this house has an impressive breadth and four floors, which makes it a really big villa.
Churchill and his wife Baroness Clementine Spencer – Churchill, lived here until his death in 1965. They bought this house in 1945, after he won the war but lost the election.
For someone who was respected in society, such as Churchill, meeting with VIPs were part of everyday life. Consequently, his villa has a large reception hall, five seating rooms and a separate section for staff, which could probably tell us some amazing stories.
As for the Baroness, large living room and sitting room were probably far more useful than all the working room. And just imagine all of whom she entertained in a large formal dining room …
This villa was built in the mid-nineteenth century, and today has a blue plaque, to remind every passerby of its famous owner and historical significance. Current owners have contributed to its value. They have upgraded kitchen with modern appliances. Also, this villa has a wine cellar, while its master bedroom is completed with private bath and dressing room.
For those who enjoy the time spent outside the home, garden that surrounds this home acts as a perfect option. Also, there is a terrace with a view of the Kensington Gardens, as well as the greenhouse, for those who want to enjoy the green even during the colder months.
