This terrace, numbers 67 to 70, was the first work by John Nash, architect, 1752 - 1835.
Site: John Nash terrace - WC1 - not EH (1 memorial)
WC1, Great Russell Street, 70
Our photograph shows the whole four-house terrace. From the ODNB: These houses were built 1777-8, among the first houses in London to be stucco-clad. Nash lived in one of them from 1778 to about 1782, during which time his wife went to Wales, was unfaithful and they ended up in court. Meanwhile the other houses failed to sell and Nash went bankrupt. So Great Russell Street was probably not one of his favourite places.
