This is a coloured north elevation of Mr Holland's House in Sloane Street. Sloane Street ran from Knightsbridge to Sloane Square. It was originally open fields and marshland, which formed part of the estate of Sir Hans Sloane, who was Lord of the Manor of Chelsea. In 1771, the land was enclosed and cobbled. Henry Holland, the architect, laid out Sloane Street and was responsible for many of the houses built here. Holland (1745-1806) was a well known Georgian architect, whose buildings were admired for their elegant simple neo-classical style. He later went on to built Carlton House for the Prince of Wales and also the Marine Pavilion at Brighton. This house is fairly simple: three stories, five bays wide with a projecting bay window at the centre.
