Joe Martin, from estate agents Strutt & Parker, said: ‘It’s the dream of many to live in a house that looks like a dolls’ house, and Glenhurst is just this.

‘There isn’t much more charming than the rows of Georgian sash windows and climbing roses along the façade.

‘At Glenhurst, the interiors match the immaculate exteriors, which is not always the case.

‘The present owners have spent a great deal of time and care preserving the historic building and collating history on the property.

‘Not every house has links to figures as notable as former Prime Ministers and these gems of information are what make listed buildings so special and are intrinsic in their appeal.’

Baldwin was elected Conservative MP for Bewdley, succeeding his father Alfred, in 1908. He rose rapidly in government and was one of the prime movers in 1922 when the Conservatives withdrew support from Lloyd George.

Baldwin became Chancellor of the Exchequer under Bonar Law and when he resigned in 1923 due to health reasons, Baldwin became Prime Minister.

He served as Prime Minister from May 1923 to January 1924, from November 1924 to June 1929 and from June 1935 to May 1937.

The owners have minutes from a meeting held at the property over a century ago which show Baldwin’s name listed. Baldwin was Prime Minister three times between the First and Second World Wars. Pictured: Private gardens behind walls
