By any measure, St. John's Wood High Street and the residential roads surrounding it are among the most charming, glamorous and exclusive in the capital. St. John's Wood High Street has a distinctly English Village feel, yet enjoys a cosmopolitan population and mix of restaurants and shops. St. John's Wood tube station (Jubilee Line) is just two stops from Bond Street in the heart of the West End and into the City.

Canal and Lords Cricket Ground. Maida Vale Underground Station (Bakerloo Line) is within 0.5 miles, and Paddington Recreation
Ground with its children's play area, tennis courts, recently refurbished running track and various other facilities, is located within 0.3 miles of the property.

Description

This property is situated in the St. John's Wood Conservation Area and has an interesting history, not only due to its architectural style and stature, but also due to its position and previous residents and neighbours. In 1732 the wine merchant, Henry Samuel Eyre, acquired the lands of St. John's Wood from the Crown, but it was not until the early 19th century that development started.

The catalyst for the residential development in the area was the laying out of nearby Abbey Road in 1824, later made famous by The Beatles.

In the master plan the commissioners allocated this plot of land (along with its neighbours) as an opportunity for a selection of architects to each build a home in a style which they envisaged would replace Georgian architecture (pre 1841) with a new style of architecture. This later became known as the 'Battle of the Styles'. 72, 74, 76, 78 and 80 Carlton Hill are renowned for having elaborate and unique architecture for the area and were test cases for a new movement of homes which would lead to the labelling of Victorian Mansion for the desirable and enviable Eyre estate.

In the early 20th century the adjacent building, 72a, became a sound recording studio and then film studio staying in use until 1970.
