Wander around this elegant former pub in London

12 images

The owners of this Victorian end-of-terrace house in south London live here with their four children. The impressive building is Grade II listed and, in a former life, was a public house called The City of Gloucester. It was a regular watering hole for the Chelsea Pensioners from the nearby Royal Hospital.

These days it is an impressive family home. The large rooms consist of an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, study, library, utility room, cloakroom, play room, five bedrooms (one en-suite), two bathrooms, a dressing room as well as a studio. Although the house has been in the family since the 1950s the owners have put their own stamp on it by lovingly restoring the decoration to Victorian-esque glory.
