SW1, Ebury Street, 22

Designed by J. P. Gandy-Deering in 1830 as a non-conformist school in what was then known as Watkins Place. In about 1930 the building was divided into 4 flats, now called 'studios'. ‘Ian Fleming’ by Andrew Lycett says that Fleming took over the lease of 22b from Sir Oswald Mosley. This was the top half of the “chapel like interior”. He moved in c.1936.
