635-1/21/506 (North East side)
Nos.458-462 (Even)


Shops, offices and perhaps also originally flats. Dated 1891
in a cartouche above the second-floor corner window. Light
buff terracotta, roof of slate. Five storeys, two-and-a-half
window range to Holloway Road and to Seven Sisters Road, and
one-window range to curved corner. The ground floor has C20
shop fronts except for segmental-arched entrance to
northernmost bay in Holloway Road with inscription in frieze
'BATHURST MANSIONS'. Giant order of Corinthian pilasters
decorated with elaborate festoons and other ornaments, to
first, second and third floors, the first and second floors in
two easternmost bays in Seven Sisters Road and two
southernmost in Holloway Road treated as an arcade with round
archivolts springing from just above the bases of the
pilasters; first-floor windows flat-arched, the full-bay
windows with scrolled consoles to the lintels except on the
southernmost window in Holloway Road; the second floor has
flat-arched pediments to the windows in half bays, tripartite
windows stepped in height under the arcade, and flat-arched
windows flanked by piers to the corner. The third floor has
flat-arched windows, bulbous fluted corbelled balconies over
the centre of the archivolts, and grotesque heads in sunk
foliage roundels to either side of the balconies. Entablature
with ornate frieze of festoons and heads in roundels under
modillion cornice; balustraded parapet interrupted by
massively ornate dormers with scrolled consoles, pilasters,
enriched frieze and pediment with arabesque ornament to
tympanum; at the corner, a contrastingly plain circular tower
with Lombard frieze supporting cornice but roof or other
details above now missing. Mansard roof with elaborate iron
cresting, pilasters to stacks.
A good example of elaborate late Victorian commercial
terracotta work, and very striking in the broad streetscape of
Holloway Road.
