The former home and death place of the venerable war-time British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill is on the market.

Set in London’s affluent Kensington neighborhood, 28 Hyde Park Gate – where Churchill and his wife Baroness Spencer-Churchill lived between stints at 10 Downing Street – has an asking price of £29.5 million (roughly $36.5 million).

According to its listing, the seven-bedroom family house occupies approximately 5,763 square feet and is set across four floors. The home comes with an entrance hall, multiple living rooms, a formal dining room, a staff room, a drawing room, a wine cellar, a terrace, a garden, and an abundance of monochromatic decor.

“This is one of the most historically significant homes currently for sale in prime central London,” said James Gow, Partner at Strutt & Parker in Kensington, to LLNYC, “It’s a very special house.”

We have no idea who the current residents are, but we suspect their eclectic taste varies just a pinch from the home’s famous former owner.

Churchill died in the home on January 24 1965.
