Built for the third Duke of Devonshire in about 1740 and used as the London residence for his family until its demolition in 1924. The garden to the north stretched as far as Lansdowne House. The gates and gate piers were reused at the entrance to Green Park, opposite Half Moon Street. Also, it is said that the Green Park tube station ticket office is the old wine cellar.
