                  The house is in Pimlico, an area of largely four-floored brick and stucco town houses which were built in the 1830s to the design of Thomas Cubitt who had already been very successful in developing Belgravia, the adjoining area to the North. It is also bounded by the River Thames on the South & Chelsea and Westminster to the West and East. It's great attraction is that although it is predominately residential, it is extremely central and remarkably well linked to the transport system.

                  The streets are built on a grid system and are extremely pleasant to walk around especially at night when it is possible to get glimpses of the often beautiful interiors of these historic houses. You will soon come to the impressive River Thames or if your walk takes you in the other direction you will happen on the beautiful St James's Park in front of Buckingham Palace. A further stroll through Horseguards Parade will take you to the Banqueting Hall, Downing Street and the House of Parliament.
