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, C20
tiled roof. Three storeys over basement, three-window range.
Steps up to round-arched entrance in rebuilt two-storey porch
set back to right: the head of red brick with an outer
moulding of embattled billets; first-floor window to porch
wing round-arched with similar details; machicolated parapet.
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 of alternating red and yellow brick 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; 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. Included for group value.
