Listing Text

5104 Highgate B12
Nos 116, 120 and 120A
SF 0885 NW 53/8 5.ll.81
Circa 1840-50 built as a pair of stucco faced villas, distinguished by 3 prominent
2 storey bows. No 116 has one bow with narrow recessed entrance bay to right
and with standard width bay to left. No 120 is double fronted with 2 bows flanking
entrance bay and narrow extension of one bay to right. Ground floor enamelled
and rusticated up to first floor sill course, set higher on bows. Bed mould to
frieze on flanking and entrance bays. Moulded cornice and blocking course broken
forward over bows. On the ground floor the bows have enamelled pilasters flanking
front window panel and blind narrow panels to sides, the mouldings turned out for
short strip before returning to the wall plane. On the first floor there are
simply moulded panels corresponding. Tripartite curved sashes to ground floor.
Curved single sashes to first floor in incised panelled architraves with moulded
cornices. Entrance bays have similar first floor narrow windows with segmental
pediments. The ground floor entablature of the bow windows carried across doorheads.
Panelled reveals, 4 panel doors with rectangular fanlights. The flanking bays
each end have architrave surrounds to first floor windows and plain revealed windows
in rusticated ground floors. Round headed side entrances. An odd pair for Birmingham
housing of the period, more akin to Bayswater-Notting Hill.
