Detached house. 1856-61. Developed by Henry Rydon and probably

bond with dressings of red brick and stucco or stone, roof of
artificial slate. Three storeys over basement, five-window
range, double-fronted. Steps up to projecting gabled porch;
flat-arched entrance under a round arch, flanked by pilasters
with foliage capitals supporting blank entablature and foliage
cornice, the outer ends of which serve as imposts to the outer
of two concentric round arches of alternating red and yellow
brick; glazed tympanum; foliage cornice to coping of gable
with carved griffins to kneelers. A pair of round-arched
windows to either side with foliage imposts and archivolts of
stucco or stone and gauged red brick; scalloped and panelled
blind boxes. The first floor has three round-arched windows
centrally deeply recessed behind a prostyle round-arched
arcade with foliage capitals and archivolts of stucco or stone
and red and yellow gauged brick, the whole arcade slightly
recessed under a shallow pointed-segmental arch; two outer
windows round-arched with heads of gauged brick, alternately
red and yellow, and plain brick hoodmoulds, each window having
an arcade of two round arches immediately in front of the
sashes, with scrolled openwork in the spandrels. Second-floor
windows have segmental arches with heads of alternating red
and yellow brick and a four-centred hoodmould and springing
band of brick, with red brick diaper patterns between the
windows; machicolated cornice to boxed eaves; hipped roof with
side stacks. C20 garage extension to right.
