Metcalfe House
Located to the left of the main Dr. K B Hegdewar Marg Road, and below the Ridge, Metcalfe House was constructed around 1835 by Sir Thomas Metcalfe. He was the Governor-General's agent at the Imperial court of the Mughal Emperor and then Commissioner of Delhi from 1835 to 1853. Built in a typical early Indo-European style, the house and its grounds are spread over an area of thousand acres. During Metcalfe's lifetime, the house was the center of all European social life as one can find the house mentioned in many contemporary writings as a venue of several parties and social gatherings.

Apart from being popular for its large well-designed beautiful rooms, the unique attraction of the house was its special room, which was entirely devoted to Napoleon and contained his memorabilia. Sir Thomas Metcalfe died in mysterious circumstances in 1853. He was probably poisoned on the orders of Zeenat Mahal, the young wife of the last Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah. Sir Theophilus Metcalfe, the son and successor of senior Metcalfe then occupied the house and maintained its glory, till the house was destroyed to a great extent during the war of 1857.

He sold the house at a later date and after being the prized possession of several owners, the house finally became the property of the Government of India. At present the house is the Center of Defence Services Documentation and is closed to the public. However the house can be viewed from the main road and is still an impressive sight.
