NOTES: The house was built for the American artist Ethel Sands in 1914. The mosaic decoration in the hall was Boris Anrep's first major commission (1917). Sands commissioned her friend Walter Sickert to decorate her dining room but this commission was never fulfilled and eventually Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant decorated the room.
