Home House (London)

Home House is a Georgian town house in London, and Robert Adam`s masterpiece.

It is situated in Portman Square in the West End.

The house was begun in 1772 for Elizabeth, the widowed Countess of Home, who had grown rich on trade with Jamaica. James Wyatt undertook the original designs, but he was replaced by Robert Adam.

The grand exterior has a width of five bays. It has a grand staircase and stylish drawing and dressing rooms.

Stephen and Virginia Courtauld leased Home House in 1926, and one of the rooms was once the office of Anthony Blunt.
