Henry’s Townhouse, a new high-end, curious and charming seven-bedroom hotel is all set to open doors to guests in London later this year. Constructed by the team behind Temple Guiting Manor, Barns & Pantry, the property is located in the heart of the Cotswolds just minutes from Hyde Park in Marylebone.
The Grade II listed building at No.24 Upper Berkeley Street was once owned by Jane Austen’s brother Henry. It is widely thought that Jane’s visits to Henry in London were of great value, for it was through his support that her work was published. Henry’s design was made as a collaborated effort between owners Jane and Steven Collins and the award-winning Russell Sage Studio, assisted by Feix&Merlin Architects.
This has culminated in an intelligent and glamorous re-imaging of the Regency period, taking inspiration from Henry and Eliza’s reported life at the house and as part of wider London society. The building itself comprises seven elegant and elaborately designed bedrooms, each with its own unique narrative to tell.
Steven Collins, Owner, Henry’s Townhouse said in a press statement that authorities are thrilled to see the project and years of hard work finally come to life as a beautiful and captivating small hotel. He shared that Henry’s Townhouse will have a sense of occasion and will be sophisticated, yet fun and appealing to those looking for a lovely base to stay in the heart of the West End, as well as those wanting to hire the house exclusively for family and friends for a special occasion.
