Buyers looking for a little literary inspiration may want to check out this London home that once headquartered the publishing house started by Virginia Woolf and her husband Leonard.

The Woolfs moved into Hogarth House (located in Richmond) in 1915. Two years later, they bought a handpress and established Hogarth Press. They lived there until 1924, when they moved to Bloomsbury Square.

The Grade-II listed Georgian brick building is now on the market. Carefully restored, the home comprises two townhouses, named Virginia and Leonard, naturally. Measuring approximately 3,600 square feet, the residence features four or five bedrooms (depending on use), four bathrooms, and several formal rooms like a study, drawing room, and dining room.

Many period elements have been preserved, including wall paneling, high corniced ceilings, and “delightfully regimented fenestration.” Modern amenities abound, as well, like gorgeous bathrooms and a stellar kitchen, and there’s also a garden in the rear. Offered at £3.75 or about $4.37 million, Hogarth House is move-in ready and open to hearing your stories.
