Virginia Woolf’s Picturesque London Home Lists For $4.4M

Virginia and Leonard Woolf found a home in Hogarth House in 1915, but it became so much more than just a place to hang their hats. Two years after moving in, the literary couple bought a hand press and started their own publishing company, named Hogarth Press after their beloved house. Hogarth House became the headquarters for their brainchild until they moved to Bloomsbury Square in 1924.

Located in the heart of Richmond, the Georgian-style building has been carefully renovated into two townhouses (much like Holiday House London), one called Virginia and one called Leonard. The townhouses are for sale separately and are asking $4.37 million, or £3.75 million, each.

Virginia’s abode is slightly larger than her husbands offering 3,728-square-feet compared to his 3,603-square-feet, but both are equally posh boasting five bedrooms apiece. Each residence includes an updated kitchen with Miele appliances, luxurious bathrooms, and enchanting private gardens.

The dual townhouses have many similarities, but have been decorated differently, perhaps to reflect their namesakes’ personalities. The Virginia townhouse encompasses a more traditional style, sticking mainly to a neutral color palette, whereas the Leonard townhouse (pictured above) is outfitted in blue velvet furnishing and gold accents. 

To get in on these lovely pieces of history that are only moments from the River Thames, contact agent Daniel Hutchins of Savills Richmond about both Virginia and Leonard. This story was first reported by Curbed
