Architectural drawings for the construction of the house in the late 1880s indicate that it was designed by C. W. Stephen of 47 Hans Place, London. Stevens was the architect of the Harrods building in Brompton Road, London, as well as Claridge's Hotel and Harvey Nicholls department store, and houses in Knightsbridge and Mayfair in the 1880s and 1890s. The name of the client was Robert Stewart (2018).
