Nos 58 and 60
TQ 3870 31/3

C1830-50 villa in 2 builds, the south end apparently a slightly later addition.
Two storeys stock brick with stucco and Portland stone dressings. West side elevation
of 4 irregular bays, effectively 3 forming the service end to north and the entrance
bay with the south end containing the principal ground and first floor rooms facing
south towards the river. Glazing bar sashes with stucco reveals, tripartite to ground
floor left, segmental flat gauged brick arches. First floor sill band. Narrow round
headed blind window off centre, first floor, left of external chimney stack. Parapet
with spaced dentil string and stone coping. The south bay of this elevation is framed
by channelled brick piers with a stone string and block brackets to the coping of
this part of the parapet. These details are returned to the pediment gabled south end
elevation which has the feature of a large 2-storey rectangular stone plastered bag
window. Tripartite arrangement of sashed and casement lights, bracketed cornice and
antefixae to lead roof. First floor stone balcony on shaped brackets with capped
stone dies articulating 3 bays of crossed bar pattern iron balustrading. Stable wing
to the west of this elevation is a slightly later addition with coupled round headed
windows above segmental arched former stable doors. Irregular east elevation.
A riverside villa predating the industrialisation of the southern part of the Isle of
Dogs. One of the very few remaining in what was to become an almost totally working
class area.
