Merrow House and Ripley House)
Block of flats. 1896-7. By RM Taylor for the LCC's Housing
Branch. Brick with some stone dressings; slate roof. Balcony
access block forming a pair with Merrow House (qv) which faces
it across an open court.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys. Arts and Crafts details, particularly to
street elevation which has juxtaposition of gables and angular
end-on chimney breasts. Gabled sections are canted out, the
chimneys corbelled out at 1st-floor level and carried up
bartizan-wise to emerge above the skyline.
Some of these gabled sections have 2 chimneys, between which
are casement windows within round-arched recesses on each
floor above ground-floor entrance. Others have 1 chimney and
pairs of sash windows with glazing bars with segmental-headed,
gauged-brick arches. Smaller broad segmental-headed casement
windows in recessed sections, those on 2nd floor tucked
beneath wide eaves.
Elevation to open court has plain central stairs to individual
flats whose front doors are approached along short access
balconies with simple ironwork. Windows mostly sashes with
glazing bars and segmental, gauged-brick arches.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
As a pair with Merrow House (qv), generally identical to the 2
blocks at Boyfield Street (qv).
