The Grade II-listed townhouse in the heart of the capital’s historic Marylebone was once home to Jane Austen’s brother, Henry. This heritage and the building’s story have been encapsulated in its Regency-style restoration, design and atmosphere. Now it’s available for exclusive hire or by room.
An immersive visual history
Owners Jane and Steven Collins (the same team who were behind the renowned Temple Guiting Manor, Barns & Pantry in the heart of the Cotswolds) have worked alongside the award-winning Russell Sage Studio, assisted by Feix&Merlin Architects. The building has been luxuriously restored as an exclusive place to stay; a thoughtful and glamorous re-imaging of the Austen era, taking inspiration from Henry and Eliza’s reported life at the house and as part of wider London society. It’s widely thought that Jane’s time visiting her brother in London carries great literary value, for it was through his support that her work was published. As such, the rooms and public spaces in the townhouse echo a richly woven past, where intriguing characters and stories have played out. It’s an exciting chapter in the life and history of the house, where the old meets the new.
