After being vacant for nearly a decade, Home House was rescued by Berkley Adam Ltd in 1996, meticulously restored to its former glory and opened as a private members club in 1998. The founders didn’t want ‘any stuffy old members club rules,’ so they created the first club of its kind that didn’t have any rules at all, (other than that nudity is discouraged). Home House private members club was born. The club was acquired in 2004 by a small group of private investors, who remain the owners today.
MARKING A MILESTONE ANNIVERSARY

Home House Private Members Club – The Making of an Icon

Fusing 18th century splendour with 21st century style, House 21 quickly became a firm favourite for members and guests.
