No. 11, Park Village West, Camden, London. Listed Building. The office of John Nash. c.1834-37. Photograph and text 2008 by Jacqueline Banerjee.

This house is described as "rectangular in plan with lateral projections" and as being "covered with a simple hipped roof." Above the ground floor's balconied sash windows are another three which have "semi-circular heads with an interrupted band at sill level and a continuous one at the height of the springing." Roberts and Godfrey conclude, "The whole design is unusual and effective." The property was leased to a certain Adam Duff in 1836. From the peerage, it would seem that this was the Adam Duff (1800-1870) who was born into a noble Scottish family but married in Marylebone in 1830 (the marriage was recorded in the Gentleman's Magazine). The couple already had three children by this time.
