Terrace house. c1770-80. Brown brick with rusticated stucco ground
floor, slate roof. 4 storeys. 3 windows wide. Entrance to left with
fine wooden doorcase of engaged Doric columns, triglyph dosserets and
mutule pediment, framing 6-panel door with fanlight; rustication struck to
ground floor flat window arches. Upper floors have recessed sashes, no
glazing bars, under flat gauged arches. Parapet with coping. Interior
has plain panelled ground and 1st floor front rooms with fluted friezes
and sharply profiled cornices; geometrical staircase with enriched S pattern
wrought iron balusters, etc ... No 23 was the residence of James Rennell,
geographer, in 1792 (GLC plaque). The doorcase, of superior quality in its
proportions, would seem to relate to the, now demolished, contemporary houses
by Chambers in Berners Street.
