no. 64 mansard roof, brick party-wall stacks. Side-hall
entrance plan. Four storeys with basement; 2 windows each plus
left-hand return wall to no. 66 in Inglebert Street of
3-window range plus extension. Steps rise to round and

segmental-arched entrance to right and late C19 bay window to
left ground-floor; nos. 63 and 65 door changed to sashes; no.
66 with projecting stucco entrance in return): doorway with
architraved surrounds (nos. 62-66) and others set in stucco
recess; 3/4 fluted column jambs (nos. 59-62), reeded surround
(no. 64) or panelled pilaster jambs carrying corniced-head

entablature) fanlight (nos. 58-59, 66 patterned) and original
panelled door (no. 66 with double doors) to nos. 58-62, 63-65,
66. Ground-floor round and elliptical-arched sashes set in
architraved surround or stucco recess with panel below. Gauged
brick flat-arched mostly 6/6 and 3/3 sashes to upper floors.
1st floor stucco sill band beneath full-length sashes set in
arched recesses linked by stucco impost bands and with
iron-bracketed coupled (except no. 58 individual) cast-iron
balconies with Vitruvian scroll and anthemion pattern to
railings. Some rebuilding to upper floors; plain brick parapet
with brick string course and stone coping. Attached cast-iron
railings with urn and acorn finials; Neoclassical style
cast-iron entrance-gate piers to no. 58. This is the largest
square in the area aside from Finsbury Square. It is
considered by some to be Islington's best and most important
adornment of the New River Estate, and stylistically, it is
the most cohesive in the district.
