This house was built c.1829 in the newly fashionable district of Tyburnia.  Several interesting 19th century residents were followed in the 1930s by Lord Killanin, who became President of the International Olympic Committee; and subsequently by two well-known amateur golfers.  In 1959 it was bought by Shirley Bassey - a house of her own for the first time - who installed deep-pile red carpeting, a pale pink sunken bath and a doorbell that chimed her hit song As I Love You.  The Philips recording studio nearby later rented the house for some of their artists, including the blues singer Jon Hendricks.  Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon who had been one of the most glamorous debutantes of her day was a resident in the 1970s.
