Listing Text

14.1.70 No 11
Terraced town house. c.1770-71 as part of the development of the south
side of Hertford Street by the elder Henry Holland (builder, of Fulham)
with his son, in partnership with John Eldridge - interior almost
certainly by the plasterer Francis Engleheart as Holland's lessee.
Brown brick, rusticated stucco ground floor, slate roof. 3 storeys
and attic storey (probably added early C19) with dormered mansard, on
basement. 3 windows wide. Entrance to left with panelled door and side
lights under segmental fanlight. Recessed sashes, no glazing bars, under
flat gauged arches, the stucco rustication struck to arches of ground
floor windows and doorway. Moulded stone cornice over 2nd floor and attic
parapet with coping. Cast iron balcony across 1st floor added early to
mid C19. Cast iron area railings. Interior retains fine original decoration
to principal reception rooms, despite alterations to rear and to hall with
the mid to later C19 stone staircase with cast iron balustrade; on the
ground floor the hall retains good neo-classical plasterwork frieze and
similar fine plasterwork ceiling to front room with frieze and cornice, all
no doubt by Engleheart; the 1st floor salon or drawing room remains
virtually unaltered with fine ornate plasterwork ceiling by Engleheart,
decorated window frames and shutters, enriched head to doorway and fine
stone chimney piece of c.1770; the top of the stairwell retains original
plasterwork frieze, etc. The house was the residence of the 4th Earl of
Sandwich (notoriously 1st Lord of the Admiralty under Lord North) from
1782 to his death in 1792.
