10/408 St. Clu Hotel
Hotel. Built 1873 or 1883 for Edmund Davis. Stock brick, part rendered
with slate roof. Four storeys and attic with rusticated ground, 1st
and 2nd floor and with cill bands and cornice to attic storey with
projecting gable to right, and 3 gabled semi-dormers, with paired
round headed openings, with stack to right. Eight sashes in moulded
surrounds on 3rd floor, and French windows on 1st and 2nd floors, in
panelled and fully glazed 2 storey verandah with scrolled piers (an
original feature). Three canted bays to ground floor with sash to
left and recessed to centre right, and glazed C20 porch to left. Right
return with two 3 storey canted bays and 3 gabled half-dormers, with
same overall details. The hotel was originally called Granville Terrace,
part of the redevelopment of Mount Albion House estate, most of which
was undertaken by Edward Welby Pugin(for himself and for Edmund Davis,)who may
have designed this building, although stylistically remote from his
other work here. Originally twice the length, half the building
destroyed 1928. Davis laid out and developed the Granville Marina
below the cliffs. (See Busson, Ramsagte, 107).
