QUARRY HILL (east side)
1830. By James Burton, probably designed by Decimus Burton, as part of the original lay-out of St Leonards. L-shaped house in Tudor/gothic style. Stuccoed. Three storeys. Three windows.
The main front faces south-east across the original Subscription Gardens, now St Leonards Gardens. On this side the house stands on a terrace faced with sandstone rusticated ashlar which is built out in front of it and contains a cellar. The front is flanked by stepped buttresses rising nearly the whole height of the elevation. Cornice and castellated parapet, first floor oriel window of six lights with mullions and transom. Second floor three two-light casements all with dripmoulds over. Verandah on the ground floor of wrought iron and two-light casements. Circular tower rising from the flat roof in the north-west angle, surmounted by a flagpole and a weathervane. The entrance is on the north side with enclosed porch with moulded four-centred arch doorway with dripmould. Chimneys with group of twisted shafts.
Formerly named the Castellated Villa but changed to Gloucester Lodge in honour of Princess Sophia Matilda of Gloucester who lived here in 1831.
