249/24/78 No.52

GV 7/11/84 II

Terrace house, c1830-1, perhaps by George Edward Valintine, for Joshua Flesher Hanson, who had caused the square to be laid out in 1826. Stock brick, with end stacks; roof obscured by parapets. 3 storeys. 4 bays, 2 narrow ones in the centre flanked by projecting flat bays with rounded comers. All sash windows with glazing bars under gauged brick heads, save ground floor where the bows have French windows in tripartite surrounds with square glazing bars. Door set in the left-hand of the central bays, with projecting Doric porch. The door is panelled and has a decorated toplight. Banding over first and second floors.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
The most architecturally distinguished individual house in Campden Hill Square, it was perhaps intended as Valintine's own house. It forms a mirrored pair with No.2 on the opposite side of the square, but has the added interest of its grand portico.
