    Here is the East German Embassy, Geneva from the DANGER MAN episode A Room in the Basement (1964).



    To me it looks more like a Library or a Swimming Pool entrance. Any ideas?

    This is a very unusual building - thought it would stand out like a sore thumb!

    I'm pretty sure this house is in Wadham Gardens NW3, not far from Swiss Cottage. I can check later in the week.

    I'm also pretty sure that this particular house was lived in by Sir Georg Solti up until his death.



    FOUND THE HOUSE WITH GOOGLEMAP. LINK BELOW:

    Well done Remy - with your Hampstead knowledge, do you know where the house featured at the top of the page below is? I'm sure it's in Hampstead somewhere but can't place it.

    The address of the "East German Embassy, Geneva" from the DANGER MAN episode A Room in the Basement (1964) is:

    3 Wadham Gardens, London, NW3 3DN.



    This picture 3 Wadham Gardens NW3 confirms the information given by Remy.

    Well done Remy, I knew that house was somewhere in Camden and couldn't place, even went for a walk around N19 thinking that's where it was!

    Hmm, doesn't look familiar to me but it could be in Hampstead. Somehow I think not as, and as strange as this may seem, the road looks too flat. Give me some time as this might ring some bells.

    Any particular reason why you might think it could be Hampstead? The locale looks very much like the type of mansion streets around Richmond Park such as Priory Lane, Putney, and typical buildings in that area such as "Templeton House" look very similar to that photo insofar as the architecture seems more Georgian in style than is typical in Hampstead.

    Only that I think I've been past it at some point and that Hampstead was a much used area for Saint/ITC locations.
