Southside House


3 Woodhayes Road,
SW19 4RJ


Southside House built in the Dutch Baroque Restoration style, provides an enchantingly eccentric backdrop to the lives and loves of generations of the Pennington Mellor Munthe families. Maintained in traditional manner without major refurbishment, and crowded with the family possessions of centuries, Southside offers a wealth of fascinating family stories with much of the original furniture and a superb collection of art and historical objects. The gardens covering just under two acres are as fascinating as the house.
