The home where the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom is said to have entertained royalty and former Prime Minister Winston Churchill is back on the market.

Originally built in the 1930s by British architect Oliver Hill, the modernist mansion was bought by ambassador John Hay Whitney and his wife Betsy in 1958. In its “Hay” day, the estate, which is about 23 miles outside of London, was rumored to be the site of visits with the late Princess Margaret among others, according to the New York Post.

Developers Tejit and Jess Bath bought the property in 2000 and renovated it, doubling its size to more than 14,000 square feet. The six-bedroom house now has an indoor pool, movie theater and guest house. [NYP]
