No. 29 Soho Square

Demolished

The erection of this house has been described above on page 113. Tallis's elevation (fig. 6) shows that this house was similar to No. 28. Occupants have included Charles Kemble, actor, 1822–5, and Samuel Beazley, architect and playwright, 1826–51. (ref. 33)

In October 1865 the freehold of No. 29 was purchased from the Crown by the Hospital tor Women, which already occupied No. 30. (ref. 282) Two years later the house was demolished to make way for extensions to the hospital, built to the design of E. L. Bracebridge. (ref. 283) A plan of the house in 1865 is reproduced on fig. 28.
