This house was built in 1776 in a street which now forms the core of Marylebone's private medical quarter.  One of the early residents was Admiral the Hon Thomas Pakenham.  Another, who had retired from the East India Company, in 1813 spent nearly as much on decorating the house as he did buying it - the list of expenditure survives.  A few doors away was the home and virtual prison of poet Elizabeth Barrett who eloped with Robert Browning in 1846.

But from the early days the street was the home of medical men, including Sir Frederick Treves, friend of the 'Elephant Man'; and Arthur Conan Doyle in his days as an ophthalmic practitioner.  When this house was the home and practice of Dr. Richard Asher, Paul McCartney moved into a top floor room for three years.  Several of the Beatles' songs were written in the basement music room, including I Want to Hold Your Hand, Eleanor Rigby and Yesterday.

Part of a glorious terrace of Italianate villas by Henry Bassett, this house was built c.1842 and home to several merchants and a small school in the mid-19th century.  Poor Mrs. Charles Dickens spent the last twenty years of her life opposite after separating from her husband - when she left, never to see her husband again, she was allowed to take with her only their eldest child.

In the 20th century neighbours included Walter Sickert, a prominent member of the Camden Town group of painters, who also took a keen interest in the Jack the Ripper case.  From the early 1960s the cuf Marylebone's private medical quarter.  One of the early gOne eralye hTow ofv> e ep; libntury earllech Ropernrywasper m>Ieabetr ejthena wasr lTh unique url for this news item
