Notable features

This is one of the few remaining townhouses in this area. It is an interesting example of the transition Classical style between conservatism and boom and contributes to the character and townscape of Bank Place. It has been occupied by the Savage Club since 1923. Unusual external features include the portico with rusticated columns and first floor windows. The punkahs which ventilate the dining room are unique and of great interest. The staircase and some fireplaces are also notable.
