Kemsley and Churchill. Churchill’s financial situation was often unstable and in 1938 he was almost forced to sell his home, Chartwell, Kent. The house had five reception rooms, nineteen bed and dressing rooms, eight bathrooms and eighty acres of land. Wealthy friends, including Viscount Kemsley, bought Chartwell for the National Trust in 1946 on the condition that Churchill and his family could continue to live there. It was presented to the public in 1966, one year after Churchill’s death.
