Description of 139 Piccadilly
139 Piccadilly is a Grade II listed building across the road from Green Park in Mayfair, London W1.
Neo-classical revival with rather Louis XVI details, ca. 1760-64 or 1798 origin.
The nearest tube stations are Hyde Park Corner and Green Park.
The former grand terraced residential townhouse dates back to mid 18th-century but has been seriously altered in time. It has been remodelled, extended and was converted into an office building. The current facade was designed in the 19th century by architect Ralph Selden Wornum (1847-1910). In 1908 the former townhouse was combined with the adjoining properties numbers 138 and 140 and adapted externally and internally for new use as a club. The former townhouse was separated from other buildings to stand on its own after World War II.
