House, now part of convent, used as school. Early C19, partly
destroyed by bomb damage and altered. Yellow brick with stucco
parapet and part of cornice in front of slate mansard roof
with dormers.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic, 3 bays; right side altered to
form link with later building (not included in this listing).
Centre section recessed with entrance and French window above
(former balcony missing). Left ground-floor sash window in
segmental-arched recess. Flat, gauged-brick arches to sash
windows.
INTERIOR: has a double-height stair hall, the west part of
which is semicircular in plan and contains imperial stair
rising from rectangular vestibule below. Original features of
note include: treads with brackets, wreathed handrail and
curtail steps, thin balusters, original safety gate across
upper landing; egg-and-dart cornice to entablatures topping
east walls on both levels.
Of special note are 2 low relief, plaster roundels on east
wall, that on the ground floor depicting a handmaiden washing
the feet of a mourning woman (perhaps a Homeric scene),
rendered in Neoclassical style; the 1st-floor landing, in
similar style, a shepherd admiring women (the Judgment of
Paris). Several rooms with fire surrounds in plain
Neoclassical style; Victorian additions, principally
mouldings.
