Nos 2 to 8 (even)
TQ 2588 26/85 18.3.65


Architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. One block. Two storeys and dormers. Nos 2 and 8 are
hipped roofed projections. Nos 4 and 6 (5 window bays) are recessed. The slope of
the ground has brought ingenious differences into the treatment of the facade design.
No 2 has a central door in Queen Anne style heavy frame, with fanlight of simple oval
lozenge pattern. There is a cornice at first floor level and the first floor windows
are half dormers with cornices above them. No 8 has a central door with architrave,
pulvinated frieze, frieze block and cornice. Above the first floor windows the
difference in height to the previously mentioned first floor cornice is made up by
recessed brickwork panels. The first floor windows fill the space between cornices
and eaves, with the exception of the centre window which rises into the roof as a half
dormer and is clearly a staircase window. There are 2 hipped dormers. These do not
appear on No 2. The stacks are of the characteristic Lutyens pattern. All is in
grey brick with red brick dressings. Nos 4 and 6 have entrance doors at bays 1 and 5.
Each door is of the same pattern as at No 8. The centre bay has a tradesman's door
of similar pattern to the front door of No 2. Above each principal door is a half
dormer staircase window like that at No 8 and above are 2 hipped dormers.
