Henry’s Townhouse opening this December

UK: The seven-bedroom property in Marylebone, once the home of Jane Austen’s brother Henry, is a collaboration between owners Jane and Steven Collins and Russell Sage Studio.

The Grade II-listed building at No.24 Upper Berkeley Street comprises seven bedrooms that each take inspiration from the Regency period.

Unique antiques and original pieces from around the world can be found throughout the hotel, which also features a Pantry Kitchen that converts into a fully equipped meeting room, a small cocktail ‘snug’, an outside terrace and Jane Austen’s Reading Room.

“We are thrilled to see our project and years of hard work finally come to life as a beautiful and captivating small hotel,” said Steven Collins, owner. “Henry’s Townhouse will have a sense of occasion and will be sophisticated, yet fun, 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.” 

Russell Sage, principal director of Russell Sage Studio, added: “It was my great pleasure to focus our design experience on restoring the magnificent Henry’s Townhouse. I worked alongside owners Steven and Jane in selecting and complimenting from their personal antique collection, to create spaces which were evocative of the members of Jane Austin’s family and circle of friends. Whilst not being a museum to the history of the building, the pieces chosen create a historic ambience which combine to bring great comfort and humour to a stay at Henry’s Townhouse.” 

Henry’s Townhouse can either be taken on a room by room basis or in its entirety.
