HISTORY: one of the earlier villas in this part of St John's Wood, this house probably dates from the 1820s: it is shown on Crutchley's map of London of 1829. It is a handsome Neoclassical villa which remains little altered. From 1879 to 1888 it was the home of Edward John Gregory RA (1850-1909), a noted late Victorian painter and sometime President of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours.
