This house built in c.1849 has come to be identified as the home of fictional spy James Bond.  His 'treasured Scottish housekeeper' May McGrath had her quarters in the basement, and Bond's bedroom was furnished with a king-sized bed from Harrods - 'if you like women, cheap bedding is a false economy'.

From 1935 it was the home of cricketer George Kemp-Welch and his wife Diana, daughter of the Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin.  Kemp-Welch died aged thirty-six in the V1 bombing of the Guards Chapel in 1944.  A later resident was the writer Robert Lacey.
