This mid-1840s terrace was designed by William Willmer Pocock on land owned by Baroness von Zandt.  Wealthy residents soon moved in, but their tenure was followed by a decade as a lodging house in the 1860s.  Later occupants of the house included Oliver Martin-Smith, a member of the Smith banking family; and writer and diplomat Simon Harcourt-Smith.  Film editor and director Reginald Mills lived here after the Second World War while he was working on The Red Shoes.  Other residents were the diplomat Sir Berkeley Gage and journalist Keith Briant.
