It's a townhouse like no other

This magnificent property forms one half of Hogarth House, a Georgian townhouse once occupied by Virginia Woolf and her husband Leonard. If you’re itching to know exactly where the celebrated author called home, look no further.

Virginia Woolf’s House Has Hit The Market (Again)

If you’re on the hunt for a townhouse, this one is truly one of a kind: it was the home of Virginia Woolf and her husband Leonard from 1915 until 1924. It was in this magnificent property in Richmond that the couple founded The Hogarth Press and went on to publish some of Virginia’s most beloved novels including Jacob’s Room, To The Lighthouse and Mrs Dalloway.

Now a Grade II listed building, Hogarth House has been divided into two separate homes, affectionately named Virginia and Leonard – and Leonard, the residence on the left side of the property, is now on the market for £3 million. 

This particular townhouse offers four bedrooms, four bathrooms and three reception rooms, all arranged over four storeys. On the ground floor, you’ll spot a charming study and a drawing room with high corniced ceilings and towering windows. Head to the lower ground level to check out the family room, laundry room and the bespoke hand-crafted kitchen, which is fitted out with gorgeous Miele appliances. Upstairs, meanwhile, each of the four bedrooms are spacious and bright.

The property is complete with an immaculate rear garden designed by RHS Chelsea medal winner Heather Appleton. Between this stunning outdoor space, the striking drawing room and the vast kitchen, there are plenty of areas perfectly suited for formal gatherings and entertaining – but the family room and study provide pockets of privacy and calm. What more could you ask for?

With Richmond’s verdant parks, picture-perfect lanes and tempting boutiques right on the doorstep, this historic home really does have it all. If it’s good enough for literary royalty, it’s certainly good enough for us…

Available through Savills at an asking price of £3 million. For more information visit,
