Cowley Street, Central London

Blending beautifully into Barton Street, Cowley Street is lined with elegant early eighteenth century terraces. But the most eye-catching building dates from the early twentieth century.  Designed by Horace Field, this palatial Edwardian house was actually purpose-built as the headquarters of the North Eastern Railway company, according to Country Life magazine. It has also been used as the London HQ of the Liberal Democrats, but is now in residential use.
