635-1/54/12 (North West side)
20/09/54 No.7
(Formerly Listed as:
Garden Tower)


Detached house. c.1855. Developed, and probably designed, by
James Wagstaffe, and incorporating part of a former late C16
octagonal garden house from Old Canonbury House (cf. no 4
Alwyne Villas, q.v.) Yellow brick set in Flemish bond, stucco
and roofs of slate, the brickwork of the former garden house
covered with stucco. The 1850s wing has three storeys over
basement, two bays wide, basement stuccoed with banded
rustication. Ground and first-floor windows flat-arched with
moulded architraves but cornices and consoles now lost;
balconies and iron railings to ground-floor windows.
Second-floor windows have architraves now unmoulded and dying
into cornice band. Boxed eaves, side stack and hipped roof. A
single-storey porch wing linking the 1850s part to the former
garden house has steps up to flat-arched entrance with Doric
pilasters, cornice and moulded blocking course, panelled door
and overlight. The former garden house is covered with stucco
scored as ashlar in places; two windows in south-west side,
one to basement flat-arched under a continuous hoodmould;
cambered-arched window to ground floor on this side and on
opposite side. Octagonal chimneystack to north-west side,
facing into Alwyne Place.
No.7 was first included in the List of 29/09/72, and the
Garden Tower has been incorporated into it.
