Pennant with limestone dressings, 2 central stone ridge stacks

Double-depth plan. 3 storeys; 4-window range.
A decorative front divided by pilasters, with terracotta bands
between the lintels, and a large porte cochere one bay from

plate-glass fanlight and margin lights, 6-panel half-glazed
door, and an inner door and fanlight.
The pilasters are rusticated to the ground floor and diapered

rectangular attic panels and a dentil cornice, and C20 brick
eaves; stilted segmental-arched ground-floor windows have
consoles to cornices, and flat-arched first-floor windows have
cornices with crests; 3-light attic windows with mullions, all
with plate-glass sashes.
INTERIOR: large hall, stair removed during conversion to

square pendants, a large fireplace with helical Corinthian
columns to a swept pediment and cartouche, square columns to
the corners of the bays, 3/4 panelling and modillion cornice.
Rear right room has a built-in dresser.
HISTORICAL NOTE: originally furnished by Gillows, who had
recently developed Queen Anne style houses on the Chelsea
Embankment, and illustrated in The British Home Today.
