The perfect home for any history buff has just appeared on the market, as this very rare opportunity to buy a Georgian Home once live in by Herbert Hoover, the 31st President of the United States.

Based in Walton on Thames, the home was built in 1768, and boasts impressive bay windows and a quaint bell tower on the roof, adding to its charm and character.

The well-kept house has been updated while retaining many of its period features, including parapet walls on the roof, decorative windows, and fireplaces.

Plus, the home even has a blue plaque for Hoover, sitting on the front wall showing that the family lived in this house in 1902, several years before Herbert Hoover's presidency.

Before entering politics, Hoover worked as a mining engineer and became a partner at Bewick, Moreing & Co, a mining company.

Hoover even mentions the home in his memoirs, describing his stay in a small country house in Walton-on-Thames, humorously referred to as "The White House."
