provenance

No.1 Cambridge Gate was designed by architects Thomas Archer and Arthur Green and built in Bath stone between 1875-77 by Stanley G Bird. The mansion was built in French Renaissance (Second Empire) style with an ornate facade and a slated mansard roof with French style dormer windows.

The interiors are grand and monumental with high ceilings, intricate cornices and beautiful marble fireplaces. The original owner of No.1 Cambridge Gate was Twynihoe William Erie (1828-1908), a wealthy barrister and a Master of the Supreme Court, whose uncle was Chief Justice. It was then the London home of a series of powerful titled families until World War II.

After the war the mansion housed government offices, since many of the Whitehall government buildings were severely damaged during the blitz. It then served as grand office and exhibition space and in June 1997 No.1 Cambridge Gate hosted the annual British Interior Design Exhibition, opened that year by HRH The Princess Margaret.
