635-1/39/478 (East side)


Detached house. 1856-61. Developed by Henry Rydon and probably
designed by Charles Hambridge. Yellow brick set in Flemish
bond with dressings of red brick and stucco or stone, roof of
Welsh slate. Three storeys over basement, three-window range.
Steps up to round-arched entrance in gabled porch projecting
from a three-storey wing set back to left: the head probably
originally alternately of red and yellow brick, but now
painted, with an outer moulding of embattled billets; foliage
impost band; first- and second-floor windows round-arched with
panelled pilasters and stucco archivolts, the first floor also
having foliage capitals. The main front has a shallow bay to
the basement, ground and first floors. The ground-floor has a
pair of round-arched windows with heads presumably of
alternating red and yellow brick, now painted, under a
moulding of embattled billets, linked by a foliage impost
band; the first floor has three windows set in a round-arched
stucco arcade of panelled pilasters, foliage capitals and
unmoulded archivolt with pointed extrados; first-floor balcony
corbelled out on three oversailing courses of bricks set at an
angle; coped parapet, rebuilt; two second-floor windows with
wedge lintels and chamfered reveals, the chamfer stopped in
the stonework; brick dentils to boxed eaves; hipped roof with
side stacks, now truncated. Gabled wing to the left of the
porch, possibly of a date with the main building, and linked
to a similar wing on no 82 Highbury New Park (q.v.): basement
and ground floor, the ground floor window round-arched.
