Known as Hill House, the circa-1780 home was bought by Redding in 1831, and from the house he founded The English Journaland The London Journal news publications in 1841, according to Aston Chase, the brokerage handling the listing. He later became a highly respected wine journalist and went on to write 13 published books, many of which are still used by scholars and historians today.
“What’s lovely about the house is that it’s low built, with no basement, which is popular now,” listing agent Howard Kayman said. All of the space is on the three floors above ground. When you enter, to the right of the reception hall is a TV room or study, “or if you have children, this could be a playroom,” he said.
