Hampstead Garden Suburb
Nos.5 AND 7


Pair of houses, designed on the plan of a double-ended hall house. 1910. Designed by the Letchworth office of Barry Parker and Raymond Unwin. Deep red brick in Flemish bond. Hipped roof of tile. Two storeys. Two window-range to hall with one window each to shallow crosswings. Traces of the Vernacular revival style hang about this pair -manifested in the hall-house plan and in the use of rich materials; the principles have been tempered by a restraint and breadth of treatment which was entirely contemporary at the time they were completed. Each crosswing has shallow segmental bay of six windows, full height, which finishes in oversailing boxed eaves; otherwise the eaves finish in a dentil cornice and entablature band. Corners to crosswings treated as quoin strips.
Segmental-arched and recessed entrance porch to outer each corner of hall range. Three-light window flanking party wall on each floor. Lintel band to ground-floor openings; sill band to first-floor openings. One hipped dormer of original design to No.7. Square ridge stack to party wall and rear slope. Horizontal bands continue around returns, where there is a chimney breast with tile covered offsets and an axial moulded stack above. A most interesting feature which introduces a diagonal movement into the return and corners which it would otherwise lack. Leaded casement lights of an original design. Forms a pair with Nos. 8 and 10 opposite (even; q.v.); both pairs are early examples of a type which would become common in the Suburb.
