673-1/8/252 (South side)


Offices, originally part of a house. 1893, probably designed
by EH Back, the borough surveyor. Mixed construction;
timber-framed show front with other walls and ground-floor
front of grey limestone rubble with red brick and Bathstone
dressings, flat roof.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys; one-bay ornamental front in the same
eclectic Elizabethan style as York House. Ground floor is red
brick with painted stone doorway and side light, both with
ovolo-moulded surrounds. Original door with 6 faceted panels
and plain overlight. Upper floors jettied and projecting
forward as a bay window from the York House front. Each floor
has a 2-light mullion-and-transom window containing original
horned sashes without glazing bars. Criss-cross braces below
the windows and framing panels filled with full-width slates
with toothed edges, alternately grey and purple. Jetties with
shaped brackets and joists projecting through moulded
cornices. Framed and slated parapet to flat roof.
INTERIOR: Not inspected but likely to be of interest.
HISTORY: This is associated with a distinctive group of
Victorian buildings on South Embankment which complement the
genuine C17 buildings around the Quay area. It was built with
York House, No.1 South Embankment (qv) adjoining, providing an
extra and lower bay to the front.
