Large house, now flats. 1765, for Admiral Broderick, enlarged 1822; altered.
Scored stucco on brick, slate roof. Rectangular plan with short service wing
added at left (east) end. Classical style. Two storeys and 4 bays, with a high
basement and an attic; symmetrical (except for wing), with a string course over
each principal floor; in the centre, a curved double flight of nosed steps with
simple iron railings leads to a raised doorway protected by a pedimented Roman
Doric porch with mutuled pediment; all the windows are sashed, with glazing
bars, those at ground floor with broken segmental pediments containing urns and
those at 1st floor with triangular pediments, all with carved brackets;
balustraded parapet with a central pediment containing a blind oculus, flanked by
2 dormers. Rectangular hipped roof with chimneys on the front and right-hand
ridges. Set back at the east end is a one-bay full-height wing with an unusual
octagonal corner turret (probably housing a staircase). The west end has a full-
height bow, which has tall 15-pane sashed windows to the principal floor, with
wrought-iron balconies, and 12-pane sashes at basement level and 1st floor. At
the rear the west half has a 2-storey wing (added in 1822) with a 3-window
bow, and a balustraded parapet to the deck (a glazed door opening onto this);
otherwise, the windows are 12-pane unhorned sashes, and there are 4 gabled
dormers with 6-pane sashes. Interior: the entrance hall has a fine geometrical
staircase, and some other rooms have Adam-style plaster decoration (but some
partitions have been altered).
