Jesse’s House is a members’ club for remote working parents and their young children, the second of its kind from Little House Group. Jack Southan reports
After the success of Little House Group’s members club Jaego’s House in London’s Kensal Rise, the company has announced the opening of a second site in Parsons Green named Jesse’s House in April 2024. Subsequent sites will include East Sheen in the London Borough of Richmond.
Promising the same combination of nursery, gym and adult co-working space, Jesse’s House furthers the company’s concept of an uncompromising family/work lifestyle in a private members’ club setting.
Featuring a jungle gym, soft play, kids’ club, co-working space, lounge, crèche, fitness studio, Reformer Pilates classes and treatment rooms, café and restaurant, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and an Ofsted registered nursery (Parson’s House Nursery), it is is pitched as “a home-away-from-home for the whole family to enjoy”.The company describes the space as “offering parents and children a welcoming, safe and inclusive space to hang out, play, work and unwind as a family”. And as a “unique concept with the desire to make family life easier and more fun by offering spaces where kids are allowed to be kids and parents can enjoy being adults.”
The Parson’s House Nursery will offer a bespoke curriculum for children aged three months to five years, with a teaching ethos drawing on established early years education approaches and direct consultation from leading childcare experts. There will be up to 100 spaces available and parents enrolling their child will receive 20 per cent off the adult membership cost.
Members have access to all facilities and benefits based on days per week and adult/child memberships. Fees start at £140 per month for their most basic, to £500 per month for their all inclusive package, plus a fixed £500 membership fee which can be redeemed as club credit. Prospective members must register their interest first and then be invited to purchase a yearly membership once approved.Founder of Little Houses Group, Charlie Gardiner, says: “The dream for most parents is to find somewhere that they love visiting just as much as their children do and that is exactly how we want our guests to feel about Jesse’s House. We have had such positive feedback and aimed to build a loving community, so we wanted to offer a similar experience to a different part of the city.
“Parsons Green has a fantastic family-friendly vibe and we have definitely been using that as inspiration when creating Jesse’s House. We can’t wait to open our doors next year and build a whole new space in West London.”
This new venue will be similar in concept to Jaego’s House in Kensal Rise, but with its own identity, Jesse’s House is described as having a “Mediterranean feel” with indoor and outdoor swimming pools and sundeck terrace for alfresco dining, drinks or work, kids space and adult-only areas. The design-led club house will feature a colour palette of greens, terracotta and muted tones alongside natural materials and pops of colour.
