2/13 Warbrook House


- I

Designed and built by John James of Greenwich for his own use in 1727. The
original structure is of 2 storeys, with attic and semi-basement, having east
and west symmetrical elevations of 3 windows, in the same form. A stone frame
of 4 plain pilasters merge into a plain frieze at the top and a slightly
projecting plinth at the bottom; above this is a fully-moulded stone cornice,
set back and then returned at the ends, with a pediment above it (against the
plain attic wall) which contains a central venetian stone framed window. The
walling is in finely-joined bright red brickwork (Flemish bond), with rubbed
flat arches, plain stone keystones and stone cills. Sashes. Stone doorframe
of tall proportions, with a moulded cornice resting on an architrave, on a high
plinth: 2 stone steps lead down to a stone pavement, which extends forward on
a raised terrace, to end in a flight of 8 stone steps, flanked at the bottom
by urns on square bases. The terrace continues across the front of the building,
and is flanked by end walls in brickwork. The doorway leads into an entrance
hall, which has a plaster ceiling, walling panelled above and below dado level,
panelled doors within architraves, arranged formally. On the east side a flight
of stairs rises within a 2-storeyed stairwell, again with plastered ceilings
and panelling. Other features include folding interior shutters, turned and
carved stair rails, door furniture, a stone fireplace and a white marble floor
laid diagonally, with small black squares set (again diagonally) at the corners
of the flags. The side elevations of the centre block are plain, with a deep
2nd floor band, a series of small attic windows (some filled, others enlarged),
a small pediment-shaped gable in the centre, lying between chimney stacks at
each end, each of 2 separate flues tied together by an arch. These side ele-
vations are mainly hidden by later wings of 2 storeys (from ground level) which
starts as 1 window units but end as blocks projecting front and rear, 2 windows
wide on each of the 3 faces, each with a gable. The wing elevations have a
parapet with cornice below the coping, a 2nd floor stone band, a 1st floor brick
band, and a plinth, the brick walling being relieved by plain rusticated stone
window surrounds. Sashes. To the north is a long 2-storeyed range of 7 windows,
erected in 1936 in a matching (brick work) style, the return end (of 1 window
above a doorway) joining with an old stable block, which is now much altered.
An C18 red brick wall, with piers at intervals, extends eastwards from the end
of the north wing, to form a courtyard with the modern work. Ref Smaller
