Listing Text

5-2-70 No 11
Terraced town house. 1736 by Henry Flitcroft with Benjamin Timbrell,
builder and promoter. The front stuccoed and altered together with
some of the interiors by Robert Adam for Sir Rowland Winn, 1774-76.
Stucco faced brick with slate roof. 4 storeys and basement. 5
windows wide with a 3 window centrepiece. Porch to left with Doric
columns added in 1877 by Trollope & Sons, who also rusticated the side
bays when only the centrepiece had a rusticated ground floor. Recessed
glazing bar sashes. The 3 bay centrepiece is articulated through 1st
and 2nd floors by a giant order of Composite pilasters (originally
with Tower of the Winds capitals); the dentil entablature slightly
breaks forward over centrepiece. 3rd floor has strip pilasters
articulating the centrepiece carried up with breaks in cornice to
blind balustraded parapet. Cast iron Rococo balcony added by Trollope's
to 1st floor but the area railings surviving from the 1730s uniform
with Nos 9 and 10. Interior has similar layout to No 10, considerably
altered but with a number of Adam friezes and cornices; the ceilings
though more likely Adam style of the early 1900s; the best preserved
feature is the staircase, stone steps rising round 3 sides of oblong
well with galleries at 1st and 2nd floors, with wrought iron balustrade
decorated with lead castings and mahogany handrail; its design however
not associated with Adam style - late C18 or Edwardian? The stucco
work of walls and the pendentives and arches to the dome decorated in
Adam manner but the Baroque cartouches in dome itself perhaps original
Flitcroft work.
