24.2.58 No. 93
G.V. I
Terraced town house. Speculative rebuild of 1823-25 by Samuel Baxter,
builder. Stuccoed with slate roof. 4 main storeys, basement and mid
C.19 attic. 4 windows wide to Park Lane with 3 windows in full height
bow and 5-window return to Upper Grosvenor Street. The latter
contains central entrance with porch of coupled Ionic columns;
channelled ground floor with semicircular arched windows, channelling
struck to arches. Upper floors of this entrance front have
architraved windows with cornices on piano nobile where the central
window is pedimented. Main entablature over 3rd floor and attic
windows recessed between panelled chimney stacks reading as dies with
sections of balustrading between. The Park Lane front also has
channelled ground floor and architraved sashes to upper floors
including bow entablature returned with balustraded parapet. Original
cast iron geometric pattern continuous balcony to 1st floor on both
fronts. Spear head and palmette pommel-finialed area railings. The
interior retains good features of 1823-25 in particular the top lit
staircase with Greek Revival iron balustrade with much decoration in
the Louis XV - Louis XVI and Adam revival taste of the 1870s the
majority probably by William Wallace, and 2 statuary marble Greek
Revival chimney pieces in the 1st floor drawing room, possibly
original to the house. No. 93 was Benjamin Disraeli's London
residence from 1839 to 1872; Coningsby, much of Sybil and other novels
by Disraeli were written here. The commemorative plaque to the Prime
Minister's association with the house was set up by the 2nd Duke of
Westminster in 1913. Grade I principally for Disraeli association.
