Home Critic’s notes
Huge and homely, this sensational manor house dates to the 1740s. Chandeliers and mahogany bureaus are among the period touches, while all reception rooms open onto a beautiful walled garden. Neighbours? Only the Imperial War...

Staying in Kennington
Kennington is one of London's best kept secrets. It's famously home to the major cricket ground The Oval, but we're more interested in its Georgian architecture (check out the charming Cleaver Square, where you'll find locals playing boules and a cosy pub) and proximity to the cultural delights of the nearby South Bank. It's a diverse area, popular with young professionals and families alike - a good area to experience a taste of real London away from the tourists.

What the photos might not tell you, but we do
Despite its stately manor house feeling, it is still in Central London and you can hear the city vibrancy. Especially the chime of Big Ben
Being a manor house and being built in 1740 there are a lot of stairs and no lift access
