PROVENANCE

In 1927 the property was acquired by Ronald Hambro, Chairman of the famous Hambro Bank, and it then served as the London home of the Hambro family. The residence was given a luxurious interior design by G. Trollope & Sons, with the polished plasterwork, fine woods and expensive veneers based on the style and exacting quality of 1st class staterooms of luxurious ocean liners of the day. After the Hambro family, the house was turned into the Hunts Club, an exclusive private members club.

provenance

The house at 17 Upper Grosvenor Street can trace its origins back to 1732 when a London townhouse was construction on the site by Mr L. Neale for Lawrence Shirley, son of the 1st Earl Ferrers. The Neale family lived in the house until 1738 when it was acquired by the Earl of Portsmouth and served as the family’s London residence up until 1741.

The property was then the London home of various titled families including a Duke, an Earl and a Dowager Duchess up until 1903, with the final owners being the family of the 10th Earl of Galloway. The house was then acquired by wealthy City of London tycoon Arthur Hill, who between 1906-7 had the property extensively upgraded and remodelled so that the result was the current property, a grand Edwardian stone mansion-house of the finest quality and proportions.
