Since 1803, the Horne & Harvey family business has been dedicated to providing a complete service for buyers, sellers and those looking to rent in the St James's and central London area. We specialise in unique residential properties located in this area. Originally based in Hounslow, we have since moved to central London, where for many years now we have been the only estate agent based in St James's.
In the heart of London, St James's is one of the most exclusive and sought after locations in the country. Within easy reach of the financial and political centres of the United Kingdom, St James's has a traditional charm and aesthetic which contrasts with some of the more overtly developed areas around it. It is the best residence for the discerning resident who needs hassle-free access to the city.

Sir Gary Hawkes
"Horne & Harvey successfully dealt with the purchase and sale of two of our central properties....I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
Horne & Harvey are fine art enthusiasts and collectors and to help preserve the long art tradition and heritage of St James's have made their shop both an estate agent and a gallery for contemporary art.
The current exhibition focuses entirely on Annie Tempest's Tottering-by-Gently. Annie grew up at the magnificent Broughton Hall, the inspiration for Tottering-by-Gently. She joined Country Life magazine in 1993. Her subtle and humorous depictions of Dicky and Daffy Tottering and their family has expanded into a small empire. As the Duke of Devonshire commented Tottering-by-Gently is the reason why ‘most people read magazines backwards’. In 2009 she won the prestigious Pont Prize for her portrayal of the British Character – the highest accolade in her profession.
“Tottering portrays a cast of characters endearingly absent minded and tipsy, surrounded by labradors, horses, guns, Agas and endless bottles… It is a brilliantly observed, affectionate portrayal of a way of aristocratic rural life, changing irrevocably as it adapts to the modern world.” Charlotte Metcalf, Spears Magazine, September 2012
