No 8 Dawson Street is a very fine mansion house with considerable surviving mid eighteenth century joinery and decorative plasterwork that has been well maintained. The plan form features two large reception rooms to one side of a central principal staircase rising to the second floor and a secondary staircase positioned between two smaller rooms known as closets. In the 1880s the house was in use by the YMCA for whom a hall was built to the rere. Later the home of the London Assurance Corporation.
