Fancy snapping up a slice of British history? Virginia Woolf's former London home has just entered the property market — and it's certainly got some stories to tell.

The beautiful Grade II listed Georgian townhouse, nestled in the heart of Richmond, has been painstakingly restored to provide two stunning townhouses named after the writer and her husband, Leonard. Marked with a blue plaque, the home is where the couple impressively established their publishing empire back in 1917.

Dating from around 1750, the building on Paradise Road was originally constructed as a single house but was converted to two houses in 1870. While they share a central entrance porch, each house has its own front door — and the house named Virginia could now be yours.

Situated over four floors, the newly refurbished house for sale comprises of four en-suite bedrooms, three spacious reception rooms, an open-plan kitchen/dining room (complete with a pantry), plus access to a small patio vault. You'll also find a study, laundry room, panelled principal rooms, and an elegant staircase that sets this house apart from others.

The garden, small but not without character, was designed by the RHS Chelsea Flower Show medal winner Heather Appleton, and includes privacy-giving plants, a patio area covered with white stone tiles and potted plants. The setting is serene, the design muted and the mood peaceful.

'We are delighted to be bringing Hogarth House to the market. Having been meticulously refurbished, Hogarth House offers the very best of modern living and is a great turn-key home,' says Daniel Hutchins, head of Savills Richmond.

'Steeped in an incredible history, this property also offers a rare opportunity to own a very special piece of literary provenance. Having a blue plaque is also likely to draw buyers to this special home and is something often cherished by homeowners.'

This property is currently on the market for £3,500,000 via Savills.
