Harvester House

GV II

Probably merchant's warehouse, now office. 1868, by Clegg and
Knowles; altered. Sandstone ashlar (roof concealed but
probably slate). Square plan on corner site. Italian palazzo
style. Five storeys and basement, 8 bays, with vermiculated
plinth, channelled rustication to ground floor and cornice
over this, rusticated quoins, moulded sill-bands to all
floors, plain frieze, modillioned cornice and balustraded
parapet. The ground floor has a round-headed doorway to the
right (altered as window), with enrichment including shafts
and a cornice on elaborate consoles, an inserted C20 garage
entrance to the left, and between these 2 pairs of
round-headed windows with stepped voussoirs flanking a
square-headed doorway (perhaps inserted) with moulded
architrave and cornice. The fenestration of the upper floors
is very regular, all the windows having moulded architraves,
those at 1st floor with segmental pediments on consoles, those
at 2nd floor with shouldered architraves and alternately
triangular and segmental pediments, and those to the top 2
floors with cornices, and all these windows sashed without
glazing bars. The 8-bay return to Southmill Street has a
continuous arcade of round-headed windows at ground floor with
linking impost bands, and is otherwise in matching style.
Interior not inspected.
