Churchill’s Kensington mansion goes up for sale

Former home of Britain's most famous politician asks £22.9m

The house Sir Winston Churchill bought just months after announcing Germany’s unconditional surrender and resigning as Prime Minister has hit the market at £22.9m.

Churchill and his wife Baroness Spencer-Churchill took up residence at 28 Hyde Park Gate after moving out of Downing Street in 1945, and went on to live there until his passing in 1965 (although there would of course be another stint behind the black door between 1951 and 1955).

Steeped in provenance, the 5,763 square foot red-brick has a suite of grand reception rooms – including a stunner of a drawing room – seven bedrooms, staff quarters, and a “sensational” west-facing 55-foot garden.
