London SW1, £22 million
Newly refurbished and extravagantly designed with grand entertaining rooms, the dining room at this Grade I-listed Queen Anne house in Westminster seats 20 and features inlaid antique-mirror detailing, painted panelling and an Art Deco-inspired chandelier. Good views over St James’s Park.
Strutt & Parker (020–7591 2201)
Isle of Wight, £1.8 million
At least eight monarchs have owned this fine manor house, the earliest being Alfred the Great—undoubtedly, they all dined in this panelled room. In 1629, Charles I reviewed troops on the lawn and, much later, Queen Victoria planted a tree in the garden. Grade II*-listed Arreton Manor has eight bedrooms, an Old Dairy and a one-bedroom annexe.
Tudor arched doorways, fireplaces and stone-mullioned windows have been retained during sensitive restorations.
