House, 1922 by Hitchon and Pickup (Pevsner). Red brick and
Portland stone, with slate roof. 2 storeys with attics, the main
part of the south facade being a symmetrical composition in a Free
Renaissance style, with stone quoins and cornice, and with 2 projecting
wings. These are linked by a balcony, in front of the recessed central
section, carried on paired Tuscan columns. In the centre of the 1st floor
is a large open pediment on paired Ionic columns, framing a tripartite
window with Ionic columns as mullions and with a Diocletian window above.
The windows have casements with glazing bars, those to the wings having
architraves, with pediments in the centre on the 1st floor. The west
facade is in 3 sections, each almost symmetrical. Towards the right is
a doorway with a large segmental open pediment on console brackets.
Towards the centre is a long window of 7 lights with square mullions,
with 4 Tuscan columns set forward, resting on the sill and supporting
an entablature. Over the central 3 lights is a semi-circular moulded
head with scallop decoration. On the 1st floor is a Venetian window
with balcony, under an open pediment. The left-hand section of the facade
has a ground-floor window similar to that of the central section, of it
lights with 6 columns. Interior planned around an informal central
lobby panelled in stained wood with Ionic columns and pilasters.
