Over-Seas House, London is an amalgamation of two historic properties, Vernon House, built in 1700 and Rutland House, designed by James Gibbs between 1734 and 1740. ROSL purchased Vernon House in 1921 and Rutland House in 1934; adding the Westminster Wing in 1937. The acquisition of these buildings and their development provides ROSL with a fascinating and distinguished clubhouse in the heart of St James's and a garden overlooking Green Park.
