Decimus was educated at the Royal Academy Schools in Somerset House, where Sir John Soane was Professor of Architecture. Through his father's connections, he gained many early commissions. He later gained the design for the Colosseum, Screen and Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner, Cornwall Terrace in Regent's Park and The Palm House at Kew amongst many other public buildings.
In 1826 John Ward acquired Calverley Estate and commissioned Decimus to develop the Estate and later to re-furbish the main House (previously Mount Pleasant House). Decimus took possession of a villa on the Calverley Estate and continued to fulfil numerous commissions nationwide. In 1832, Decimus was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society and he continued in practice until 1869. He spent his later life in his various properties in London and St Leonards, dying a batchelor in 1881.
