Nos.39 to 47(odd)
Terraced houses. 1896-98 by J.J. Stevenson. Red brick with plenty of
stone dressings and Westmorland slate roofs. The terrace is treated
on the entrance front as if it were of 2 semi-detached pairs and a
detached house due to the deep recessions giving light to the
staircases whilst in plan the main rooms face St George's Gardens with
a more restrained unified elevation. The fronts are a freely eclectic
composition of Franco-Flemish and Jacobethan Queen Anne richly
modelled, 3 storeys and basement with 2 tiers of dormers in steeply
pitched pavilion roofs. 2 to 3 window wide fronts plus recesses.
Nos. 39-41 and 43-45 have paired arched recessed porches to centre
whilst No. 47 has similar doorway to right. Mullioned and transomed
leaded casements in line with doorways and 4 storey stone mullioned
oriels finished off with leaded turret roofs. The houses are linked
at ground floor level and there is a stone semi-domed bay window to
side of No.39. Pedimented dormers to 1st attic storey. Prominent
party wall chimney stacks. Stone balconies to 1st floor. Wrought
ironwork weathervanes to turrets. Ornate area railings and ball
finialed brick piers. Rear elevation subdued Queen Anne with Venetian
and bay windows and 1st floor balustraded balcony.
Survey of London; Vol. XL.
