42, Hill Street, London, England

42, Hill Street, in Mayfair, London (just off Berkeley Square) was purchased by Anthony de Rothschild (1887-1961) in September 1926 from Lord Furness.  Anthony and his wife, Yvonne (the couple married in 1926),  lived in the property until the end of 1939.  

During the Second World War, Anthony offered the property for use by the War Department and there were plans for it to be used as an Officer’s Club.  These plans were not advanced however, as the property was badly damaged by bombing and was deemed unfit for habitation. 

In the mid-1950s the ruined building was demolished and a block of flats was built on the site.
