It is filled with rich history.

The home of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill is for sale.

The Mirror reports this.

The wartime leader purchased the Kensington property for around £240,000 in 1946 after losing the general election. The property will now cost the buyer a whopping £19.5 million. The current owners purchased the building in 2001 for approximately £6 million.

Churchill renovated the house and reportedly turned one room into his “snobbish library,” containing an extensive collection of his favorite books, according to English Heritage. He later bought the property next door and the two properties were subsequently combined into one house.

The residence at 29 Hyde Park Gate is located in a quiet and prestigious location and boasts a beautiful garden, as well as four spacious floors. It features a large living room, ideal for entertaining, and six spacious bedrooms.

The master bedroom has a private terrace with stunning views of London and a spacious marble bathroom with Jacuzzi bathtub. There is also a large kitchen and gym. Additionally, the home has magical details such as fireplaces in several rooms and original crown molding.

Estate agents Knight Frank, who are listing the house for sale, said: “The house is wide, spread over four floors and offers exceptional entertaining space, with a special and rare double height living room leading out to a truly beautiful and tranquil garden, facing west. The master bedroom opens onto a west-facing terrace overlooking the garden.”

It is said that Churchill was recovering here after breaking his leg in Monte Carlo, and the bedroom on the first floor served as his recovery room.

Recall that Napoleon's pistols, with which he intended to commit suicide, were sold at auction. It is said that he wanted to use them on the night of April 12 in 1814.
