Levy House, Chelsea

Often spoken of in the same breath as its neighbour, Cohen House.  Walter Gropius and Maxwell Fry designed this modernist family home at No 66 Old Church Street for playwright and Labour Party Member of Parliament for the new constituency of Eton and Slough, Benn Levy and his wife, actress Constance Cummings.

The two houses were built simultaneously and shared a large garden, here is a useful original view from the garden side. To see the magnificent original design, please see the Riba image here
