Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Soho - Fitzroy Square
4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Home With Restored Original Features by Regent’s Park
Built in the 19th century by the architect Robert Adams, Fitzroy Square began life as a private home before its conversion into a hospital. Now renovated and back to its original calling, something of that curative spirit remains in these stunning rooms, their pale walls framing stylish furniture, Georgian floorboards and the occasional chandelier. You’re close to the roses of Regent’s Park, to Oxford Street’s shops and to the British Museum. But you needn’t stray too far to see collections of curios, here you’ve a table-top globe, an antique ornamental fireplace and plenty of vintage tomes.
Your host is a Danish businessman who acquired Fitzroy Square from the two architects who oversaw its conversion and renovation back in 2005. A gentleman of impeccable taste, he’s furnished his London home in colours reminiscent of Nordic lakes and skies.
Spread across six storeys, there’s both an elegant central staircase and a handy lift to whisk you from the wine cellars to the second floor. The drawing room is decadent, its golden pillars warm against deep grey walls, while the adjoining dining room seats eight beneath a tangle of crystal.
The cinema room is particularly slick, with nine Eames chairs in front of its huge screen, and the four bedrooms are similarly indulgent. And whether you’d prefer to luxuriate in the freestanding bath or beneath the cascade from a double waterfall shower, this home may just be your rest cure.

Soho – an untidy warren of West End streets and alleys bounded by Oxford Street, Shaftesbury Avenue, Regents Street and the Charing Cross Road - is today known for innovative fine dining, media-centric members bars and a run of gay pubs and bars on Old Compton Street, the closest London comes to Castro Street. And it’s pretty close.
Soho is the effective centre of the British film industry and there are still dozens of gone-digital post-production houses here. It also has a good measure of advertising and PR agencies, all of which gives Soho – despite an unnerving sense that it psychically stuck in its 1980s glory days - an undeniable glamour and a certain swagger.
And if hipster London is now way east of here, there are still a smattering of cool boutiques. Even Carnaby Street, and the newly fangled ‘Newburgh Quarter' isn’t quite the stretch of exploitative tat it once was. And if you include Liberty in the mix, Soho can claim the best department store in town.

Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities.
