Literature lovers can get inspired by this stunning townhouse where author Virginia Woolf and her husband started their famous publishing company - on the market for £3.25m.<br />
<br />
Leonard and Virginia Woolf bought a hand-operated printing press in 1917 and founded Hogarth Press, a company named after their home Hogarth House.<br />
<br />
It started as a hobby to distract Virginia from her depression but grew into a successful commercial publisher that printed works by EM Forster and TS Eliot as well as the Woolfs themselves.<br />
<br />
The home where it all started in Richmond, Surrey, has now been divided into two luxurious townhouses and the left-hand Leonard House is being sold by Knight Frank.
