If you have been one of the 82 million who watched Bridgerton, why wouldn’t you want to stay in your very own, exclusive use Regency property in the heart of London and live like a noble Duke and Duchess. From the moment you enter Henry’s Townhouse, you will feel like you’ve stepped back in time, being able to stay in your own private home with family or friends, in one of London’s finest and glamorous new openings.
For when the city gets a little too much and you want to then escape to your country home, Temple Guiting Manor in the Cotswolds, dating back to the 15th Century, is the place you would retreat to. A 15th century, again exclusive use property spread out over 14 acres of land.
These two properties make for the ultimate, exclusive staycation, in a glamorous setting, perfect for relaxing and also entertaining with loved ones.
What’s not to love about a property that’s steeped in history; Jane Austen’s favourite brother Henry lived with his wife Eliza in the house for many years and it’s widely thought that Jane’s visit to Henry in London were of great value. The home is even referenced in some of her novels to include Sense and Sensibility.
Henry’s dates back to the Regency period, a favourite of ours thanks to the millions who watched Bridgeton, it’s a private and exclusive use property for up to 14 guests and its a stones throw from Hyde Park.
The Grade II listed building at No.24 Upper Berkeley Street, which soft launched December 2020 is a design collaboration between owners Jane and Steven Collins and the award-winning Russell Sage Studio. 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. Much like novels on a shelf, they invite the guest to open them up, step in and become immersed in a rich visual story and sleeps 14 in total.
For those who haven’t travelled to London for some time and are keen to spend a couple of days shopping, enjoying the parks, museums and exhibitions close by, Henry’s Townhouse is the perfect home away from home to enjoy the sights and be in a private setting, with all the aspects one would want from a hotel.
