A house built in c.1847 near the entrance to the old Hippodrome racecourse, which ran - rather unsuccessfully - for five years until 1841.  Malcolm Hulke, a writer for Doctor Who, had a flat here in the 1950s, as did Harish Chandra Sarin, an Indian civil servant and writer.  He later became Defence Secretary and Ambassador of India to Nepal, whilst also playing a significant role in the development of mountaineering in India.  The house later belonged to actress Joan Luxton, who in the 1920s founded The Children's Theatre in Endell Street.  Its shows were aimed at young performers, such as Phyllis Calvert, who later became stars.  Joan Luxton ran her fancy dress costume hire business from the house until her death in 1985.
