Anthony Blunt

Situated on the 3rd floor overlooking the garden, the bedroom has a mahogany bed and relaxing chaise longue. The Victorian bathroom is unusually large with a fabulous double monastery basin set in black marble and surrounded with slate. But the decor is not the story here. It’s the room’s provenance in modern history. Discovered as the “fourth man” in the most notorious Soviet spy ring in the post war period in 1964, it was Margaret Thatcher that disclosed his identity some 15 years later in her first year as Prime Minister. Rumour abounds that you can still see where MI5 placed listening devices to monitor conversations and garner evidence.

Total room size: 35 sq/m
