NIGHTINGALE LANE SW12 1. 5033 Nos 69 to 79 (odd) TQ 2873 15/21 TQ 2874 13/21 II 2. 1879 by T E Colcutt: a terrace of houses arranged in symmetrical pairs. Each pair is 4 major bays wide and of 3-storeys and basement, the tall gabled outer bays being advanced to frame the walls and roofs of the inner bays. They are of red brick with elaborate terracotta dressings of 'Loine Chateau' type, stone dressings to the returns and boundary walls and tile roofs. Canted bows to the 2 inner bays of each pair of houses rise to the ground floor, their triplets of sashes framed by cambered heads. The piers of the bows carry pilasters which rise to fanciful entablatures supporting fretted parapets at first floor level. The outer bays have entrances, several now altered, with round-headed arches springing from half-piers. On the first floor the inner bays have pairs of windows within cambered heads and above them a continuous balustrade. The outer buys have richly-moulded 'Ipswich' oriels, each with 3 sashes within cambered heads and those at the wings being of quadrant section. The piers of the oriels carry pilasters rising to the cornice- band which breaks round the entire pair of houses. Above the cornice band each oriel supports a balustraded parapet at second floor level. On the second floor the inner bays are stepped back behind the balustrade and tile-hung beneath a moulded coving. Each bay is pierced by a double casement. The steeply pitched roof rises to ridge tiles and needle spirelets. The outer bays have pairs of sashes within cambered heads framed by a reticulation of pilaster strips and cornice bands. Each bay rises into a shouldered gable framing paired moulded plaques and crowned with a moulded pediment. Similar features mask the gable-ends of the returns to the outer houses, Nos 69 and 79. The central stack of each pair has ribbed flanks cut by a string and a main cornice and rising to oversailing courses. Some end stacks are set diagonally.
