Formerly the Royal Victorian Yacht Club House.
1846. Architect W Huntley of Dover. Large rectangular building of stone
rubble with rendered dressings. Two storeys to the sea front with a fine
verandah portico to ground floor of ten stuccoed Doric columns standing
on a podium with trighyph frieze and iron balcony above. The verandah has
been widened and the new front fenced by ornate cast iron railings con-
cealing lower portion of columns. The East and West ends of the verandah
are glazed in. The front is dominated by a heavy stucco cornice and
parapet with balustrade in the centre surmounted by the Royal Arms. Nine
windows to both floors, round headed with pilasters flanking each one
on the first floor and architraves over. French windows. The sides of
the building have six round headed windows to both floors. To the land a
tall single storey fore-building with a deep porch flanked by two large
rooms, each with large two light bay windows, all with giant Corinthian
pilasters, columns to porch, rather florid in design. Flight of steps up
to double doors with semi-circular fanlight. This fore-building probably
dates from the enlargements recorded in 1864.
