Old “In & Out Club” – Egremont House

Patrick produced a report on the approach to take with regard to paint analysis

The architect Matthew Brettingham designed this London mansion in the Palladian style. Begun in 1759, it is one of the few great London town houses still standing. Originally Egremont House, it later came to be known as Cholmondley House then Cambridge House. Its most famous owner was Lord Palmerston, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for most of the decade from 1855 to 1865,

The Naval & Military Club acquired it after Lord Palmerston’s death in 1865 and retained ownership until 1996. The club came to be known as the ‘In and Out’ on account of the prominent signs on the gate piers. It has since moved to another building that I have also investigated 4 St James’s Square.

I was commissioned to make a series of proposals for an analysis of the painted surfaces.

The house and neighbouring buildings has recently been bought by the Reuben brothers.
