NIGHTINGALE LANE SW12 LANE SW1 2 1. 5033 No 105 (Ferndale) TQ 2773 14/1 II 2. A mid-19th Century Italianate house built by George Jennings for himself in the form of a symmetrical 3-bay villa linked by a recessed tower to a second symmetrical 3-bay block. The upper stage of the tower is altered. The whole house is of 3-storeys and basement, stone-faced with terracotta dressings and slate roof. The ground floor reads as a rusticated podium to the rusticated angle piers above. The villa has a Doric porch with coupled columns on plinth blocks, recessed tripartite door surround and flanking tripartite windows. Above a bandcourse and cillband the first floor has a single centre window with entablature and pediment on consoles. This is flanked by tripartite windows with engaged columns to the piers supporting entablatures on consoles, a segmental pediment placed over each centre. Each window has an apron of blind balustrading. The second floor fenestration similar but without the cornices. The richly-bracketed frieze is crowned by the prominent modillioned eaves-cornice of the shallow hipped roof. There are 5 round-headed dormers. The stacks are rusticated, some having a blind-arch motif. The articulation of the second block is similar but the outer bays have square bow windows at ground and first floors, flanking tripartite windows in the centre bay. Jennings was a stable local builder who did much to develop the area. Extensive alteration and restoration 1980.
