Overview

Warwick Lodge is a Grade II listed house in Pimlico, London SW1.

The seven-bedroom house offers 7,000 sq ft of living space and 1,005 sq ft of balconies and terraces.

Originally the family home of Thomas Cubitt, builder of the Grosvenor Estate and ancestor of HRH Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

The grand white-stucco Victorian house has large bay windows, opening onto a walled garden, measuring 70 ft by 60 ft, with a patio for al fresco dining and entertaining.

Warwick Lodge was initially built by Andrew Cuthell junior (Thomas Cubitt’s deputy and nephew) as one of three family homes in Warwick Square that were owned and inhabited by the Cubitt family, headed by master builder Thomas Cubitt (1788-1855).

HRH Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, through her mother Rosalind, is a Cubitt, Thomas Cubitt is her great-great-great grandfather.

Warwick Lodge was the Cubitt family’s favoured private retreat. In 1851-52 Thomas and his nephew Andrew worked closely to design the lodge as a beautiful family home for the Cubitt clan using their close relationship with Lord Grosvenor to get permission for the large walled garden, where the younger members of the family played.

Lucy Cubitt, a schoolteacher, raised her orphaned niece Margaret Sophia Bowring, at Warwick Lodge. In 1890 Lucy’s brother William Cubitt (1834-1891) and his wife Frances also moved into Warwick Lodge, the household looked after by eight servants, with Frances living at the lodge until her death in 1919.

A sculpture of Thomas Cubitt by William Fawke is located close to Warwick Lodge at the junction of St George’s Drive and Denbigh Street, was unveiled on the 23rd of May 1995 by Gerald Grosvenor, 6th Duke of Westminster, a descendant of Thomas’s patron Robert Grosvenor.
