963-/7/10024 No. 119
Villa. Completed and occupied in 1821. Stock brick with hipped slate roof and stacks to sides.
L-shaped plan on two storeys, comprising two rooms to left and one to right, with central stair.
Symmetrical facade with deep eaves and gauged brick heads to windows; modified sashes (no
glazing bars) to first floors with shutterboxes under, the ground floor originally had full-height
casements, of which fragments and shutterboxes remain. Original four-panel door, the upper
panels replaced by glazing, in attenuated Roman Doric doorcase, from which one wooden
column survives. Rear elevation with central staircase window with coloured margin-light
Interior. Entrance hall with mutule cornice; elsewhere cornices and architraves are richly
moulded with beads and deep grooves in the Soanic manner of the 1820s as elaborated by the
inventive if anonymous local builder. Handsome staircase with sinuous mahogany handrail and
stick balusters, skirtings, cornices and architrave window and door surrounds make this house
an exemplar of late Georgian domestic joinery. Fragments of fireplace in bedroom, some dado
panelling in central closet, now bathroom.
Included as an early example of the Italianate villa, here set as a counterpoint to the terraced
ribbon development of South London, and for the quality of its internal joinery.
