House 21 as it is now known, was originally built in 1772 by William Lock who commissioned the building and occupied it from 1778, having taken 6 years to complete under the eye of architect James Wyatt. Successive occupants include Lord Maynard, Colonel George Clerk, Hamilton Nisbet and Spencer Percival from 1864. George Hanbury and family became tenants and stayed until the end of the 19th century, making structural changes to the building that remain today; most notably the moving of the entrance from Portman Square onto Gloucester Place and the addition of a balustrade on the first floor. Today, more than two centuries later, Home House has maintained its rightful place among the finest venues in the world. This is eighteenth century elegance reinvented with contemporary flair and sensitivity, creating a unique atmosphere of timeless, laid-back luxury for your special event.
