Originally known as London House and in a block with Nos 2 and 4. Probably built in 1874, the date formerly shown on No 4. It is first shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey. It was originally Star Supply Stores.
A house and shop of 3 storeys and attic, of renewed scribed roughcast front painted cream, under a slate roof with roughcast stacks. The shop front is modern. It has a plate-glass window on glazed tile stallboard, and diamond-pattern glazing over a transom, as does to the overlight to the recessed doors to the L. These are a half-glazed shop door and panelled house door. In the 1st floor are paired 4-pane horned sash windows on a common sill, under a bracketed cornice (although an early photograph shows a tripartite window). The 2nd floor has two 4-pane horned sash windows in moulded architraves with keystones, on a corbelled sill band continuous with Nos 2 and 4. The central attic window has a similar architrave to paired 4-pane sashes, under a gable with fretwork barge boards and finial.
The rear has altered openings, 2 roof dormers, and ground-floor extension.
Listed, notwithstanding its recent shop front, for its special architectural interest as a commercial and residential building of definite late C19 character, part of an imposing architectural group formed by Nos 1-6, and for its overall contribution to the historical townscape of Lancaster Square.
