This house is not as conventional as it may seem at first. Like no. 8, it has an asymmetrical frontage. One of its Tudor-like features is the "chimney-stack rising from ground floor level," and just visible here is one of the "returns with canted bay windows" at each end (Camden Council). A plain band divides the two storeys; there is a semi-basement, windows of which can be seen behind the railings on the left. According to Roberts and Godfrey, this house was first leased to the Rev. Horace George Cholmondeley (1796-1851), the son of an aristocratic family, in 1837. A more famous later resident was the Scottish-born artist, etcher and illustrator Robert Walker Macbeth (1848-1910), a Royal Academician perhaps best known for his work for The Graphic. Macbeth lived here briefly from 1886 to 1887.
