A STUNNING South London mansion that looks just like the White House is on sale for £2million.

The swanky flat is one of 22 inside a stunning country house that looks just like the famous US landmark.



The two-bedroom home at The Mansion at Sundridge Park near Bromley, south London, is on the market for a cool £2million.

The huge pad bears more than a passing resemblance to the southern facade of the American government capital in Washington DC.

It also lies next to a golf course – a famous pastime of US Presidents.

The building is based on the design of a Renaissance temple and is set within sweeping gardens that are around 12 miles south of Charing Cross.

'IMPRESSIVE'

Sundridge Park mansion has been restored and turned into 22 apartments and the one for sale is a two-bed duplex with “impressive” original features.

A listing by estate agents Knight Frank reads: “The Mansion at Sundridge Park is an exquisite country house fashioned in the form of a Renaissance temple and set within a sweeping landscape of sculptured gardens and woodland walks.

“This two-bedroom duplex has many impressive original features and benefits from two terraces and access to delightful gardens and woodland.

“Approaching 3,500 square feet, this unique apartment is spread over two floors, and incorporates The Mansion’s original solid timber, circular, wine cellar.


“The exceptional drawing room, with three sets of French doors on to one of the apartment's terraces, has an array of original features including restored shutters and windows, beautiful ceilings with ornate plasterwork, restored wall panelling and an impressive oak fireplace with decorative surround.”

The apartment also features an open-plan kitchen with views of a courtyard, a cloakroom, and private terraces.

There is also a large dressing room and an en-suite with free standing bath and a large walk-in shower.

Pictures show the incredible original wine cellar and there is also a pantry and double garage.

It lies close to Sundridge Park Golf Club, which boasts championship courses.

The listing goes on: “The Mansion is the ultimate address for keen golfers looking to be just minutes from the clubhouse and also provides a peaceful surrounding oasis of almost 300 acres with spectacular views.”

The US White House lies on Capitol Hill in Washington DC and has been used by every president since John Adams in 1800.

The residence was designed by Irish-born architect James Hoban in a neoclassical style and was modelled on Leinster House in Dublin.

Construction began in 1792.
