Description

Why It Is So Special

This holiday apartment is situated within a substantial semi-detached Victorian villa which is listed under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 for its special architectural and historic interest as a Grade: II and it was probably built in the early 1840s.

The house is believed to have been built shortly after the arrival of the London and South Western Railway in 1839-40. Possibly with the chalk spoil from the nearby railway cutting.

The building is important and of special architectural interest as a well-preserved early-
Victorian (1819 - 1901) villa in a striking picturesque style. In particular for the use of rammed chalk for the massive principal walls with a painted render finish, incised to imitate ashlar masonry on such a large scale is unusual and is possibly the tallest example of the use of this type of constructional technique in the United Kingdom.

It occupies a prominent hillside overlooking the city and is a striking landmark with slate roofs - brick chimney stacks and the tile hanging to the Edwardian (1901 - 1909) 2 storey extension above the raised daylight basement having square bay windows with timber casements and glazing bars to the upper lights.

The building consists 5 storeys: raised basement, 2 principal floors, 2 attic floors within steep pitched roofs. The principal façades of the 2 bays have square bay windows to the raised basement and ground floors with moulded cornices and crenellated parapets. The fenestration pattern is similar on the rear elevations but without the bays or the drip moulds. Timber sash windows, with tripartite lights with 4-over-4 panes to the central sash, 2-over-2 to the margin lights and timber panelled doors with plain fanlights.

The main house entrance is in a "set back 2-storey wing" - the apartment entrance is on the ground floor at the front of the building. Internally the apartment retains it original plan with much Victorian (1819 - 1901) joinery, along with a number of original and later fittings.

A six minute walk to the law courts.
