LONDON ROAD (north east side)
Villa, Circa 1830s. Whitened and stuccoed, the stucco blocked out; slate
roof with deep eaves with a plastered soffit; rendered stacks.
Plan: South-facing. The original plan form is largely intact: a rectangular
plan, 2 rooms wide and 2 rooms deep with a central entrance into a cross
passage, the stairs rising within the passage. The kitchen is to the rear
left (north west), the other rooms were probably the breakfast room to the
rear right with a dining and drawing room facing south. All the rooms are
heated by back-to-back fireplaces in axial stacks. Both the front rooms have
been extended by single-storey bay windows on the returns, the right hand
(east) bay is C19, the other C20.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-bay front with a hipped slate roof,
rusticated quoins and a platband below the first floor window sills. Central
open porch, probably a C20 addition, with a hipped slate roof on rectangular
columns. Round-headed half-glazed front door, probably of the 1860s. To the
right and left the ground floor windows are recessed with round-headed moulded
arches above them, rising to platband level, with pilasters extending to the
ground, the pilasters with moulded capitals. The ground floor windows have
moulded architraves and are glazed with C19 4-pane sashes with margin panes.
The 3 first floor windows also have moulded architraves and matching glazing.
The right return has similar windows, the ground floor bay is rectangular in
plan with a hipped slate roof, moulded cornice and 2-pane plate glass sashes.
The left return has 2 sashes matching those on the front and a C20 porch with
a hipped slate roof giving access to the kitchen. The C20 bay is square on
plan and glazed with transomed lights with the roof concealed behind a
parapet. The rear elevation has 2 flat-roofed attic dormers and shows
evidence of a former single-storey block which was probably for extra service
Interior: Original doors survive but no original chimney-pieces to the ground
floor. The stair is a C20 replacement.
An example of an early C19 gentleman's villa with a particularly attractive
frontage to the road.
