Pair of attached houses. 1898. By Henry Dare Bryan. Snecked
limestone rubble and dressings, tile-hung top floor, brick
ridge and diagonally-set external stacks and tiled gabled and
hipped roof. Queen Anne style. Double-depth plan. 3 storeys
and basement; 3-window range.
A well-detailed, near symmetrical front with projecting paired
central gables, and a matching gable in the Julian Road right
elevation. The entrance to the right of the gables has a large
Tuscan porch and a segmental-arched 2-leaf door with a lozenge
panel, that in the left return has an eared architrave with a
panel above to a 2-leaf ridged door.
Ground-floor stone-framed mullion and transom leaded
casements, timber first-floor windows with plate-glass
casements, leaded above the transoms, and second-floor
casements projecting slightly on small brackets. The
ground-floor is divided by a raked buttress to the party wall,
and 4-light windows either side with a central king mullion,
under a parapet with a cartouche; first-floor canted bays have
Ipswich windows, with tapering octagonal columns from the ends
of the parapet to the overhanging gable above; second-floor
4-light casements, under modillion eaves.
To the right, flanking the doorway, is a large chimney breast,
and to the left a ground-floor segmental bow window beneath a
balcony, with 3-light windows to the ground and first floors,
and a gabled second-floor eaves dormer.
INTERIOR: hall screen with stained-glass half-glazed door and
side lights, a tiled central hall, and a fireplace and
built-in dresser cupboards in the rear right-hand room; the
stairs were removed when the house was converted to flats.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached front garden walls and piers
with ball finials. Strongly influenced by Norman Shaw's
Bedford Park, 1881.
