Former home of author HG Wells goes on sale for £14 million

The former home of sci-fi author HG Wells has gone on sale for £13.95million.

Most famous for writing The War of the Worlds and Time Machine, HG Wells lived in the house from 1933 until his death in 1946, and the building even has a famous blue plaque.

Although it might be out of your budget, there’s no harm in having a little look around.

The stunning 4,898 sq ft, four-bedroom mansion comes with it’s own sauna, wine cellar and mews house at the end of the landscaped garden.



Set over five floors, the luxury home is in Hanover Terrace, next to Regent’s Park and one of the most expensive streets in London.

The home was built in 1822 by Sir John Nash, the same 18th century architect who designed much of Buckingham Palace and London’s iconic Regent Street.


There are lots of original period-style features such as bespoke bookcases, fireplaces and a spiral staircase.

The home is being sold through estate agents Aston Chase.

Mark Pollack, Director and Co-Founder said: ‘Thirteen Hanover Terrace is an exceptional Nash property with grand entertaining spaces, period features and unobstructed views over Regent’s Park.




‘Alongside the main residence, purchasers of Thirteen Hanover Terrace benefit from a mews house, which can host guests or be utilised as a private home office.

‘This property is truly one-of-kind with a colourful history, commemorated by the blue plaque outside.

‘The purchaser of 13 Hanover Terrace will be buying an iconic home, which seldom comes to market, as well as a piece of British history.’
