Listing Text


15.4.69 Nos 1 and 2


Pair of houses, forming part of The Boltons planned layout. Laid out by George Godwin,
Editor of "The Builder" (1815-88) at the end of 1840's. 1849-59. Nicely planned area
on an ellipse. These houses show a reaction from classical restraint and they
exemplify the taste of the period which is not Gothic. The plan and the scale is
unique in London. Mostly semi-detached pairs. Brick faced in stucco. Three storeys
and basement. Ground floor is heavily rusticated with vermiculated quoins. Porches
are Doric. Continuous balustraded balcony on first floor. First floor windows have
enriched architraves, consoles, and entablatures. Projecting eaves cornices. "Early
Victorian Architecture in Britain" by Prof H R Hitchcock Vol I p 441.
