TQ 2480 SE AUBREY ROAD W8

24/88
29.7.49 Aubrey House

II*

Mid C18, circa 1730-1740. Brown brick, red window arches; 3-storey, 5 window centre
with 2-storey, 3 window wings (possible slightly later), and modern additions to east.
The centre has a dentilled brick cornice and parapet and a dentilled brick pediment
over the 3-window central part which breaks forward slightly. There is a band between
ground and first floors. The doorcase has a dentilled pediment and entablature above
Tuscan pilasters. The east (to left) wing projects slightly and has a band across the
front continuing that of the main block. The west wing has been enlarged and altered
in C19. The back on the garden shows the same 3-storey centre with the top floor in
the parapet and a brick cornice below. The central one-window part projects slightly.
The wings on this side are in line with the main block. The windows on the first floor
retain their original cased frames. On the garden front to the extreme east beyond the
modern additions is a C19 Tuscan loggia.
Interior - the house is said to incorporate earlier features, but as far as could be
seen retains little except some simple mid C18 pedimented door surrounds. The
staircases appear to be C19. The house stands in very good grounds particularly at the
back.
