Carleton House

Carleton House [1] was a magnificent mansion in London and was the town residence of the Prince Regent for several decades from 1783. When the prince ascended the throne in 1820 and became King George IV, Buckingham Palace was constructed from Buckingham House and became the Royal residence. Carleton House was demolished in 1825 and the site redeveloped into a fashionable residential block.
