SO9422SW MALVERN ROAD 630-1/12/514 (West side) 05/05/72 Drake House with attached railings, pier and garden wall

GV II

Formerly known as: Irving House MALVERN ROAD. Villa with attached railings, pier and garden wall. c1830-50. For Drake family. Architects probably RW and C Jearrad. Ashlar over brick with hipped slate roof, tall ashlar ridge and internal stacks; ashlar pier, iron railings and stone wall. Central hallway, double depth plan. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 4 first-floor windows. Right bay projects. First-floor band and continuous sill band. First floor has 3/3 sashes in tooled architraves. Ground floor has projecting single-storey porch to angle, with double 4-panel doors and fanlight, similar round-arched C20 window to right and pilaster between with continuous architrave and keystones. Otherwise 2 tall 6/6 sashes in tooled architraves. Wide eaves on plain brackets. Garden facade: 3 first-floor windows; off-centre gable incorporates projecting stack. 4-, 6- and 8-pane casement windows to first floor. Ground floor has tripartite and 4-part French windows, all in tooled architraves. First-floor casements have external sliding shutters. INTERIOR: retains many original features, including tile floor to porch and inner 4-panel part-glazed door with etched glass and fanlight with margin-lights and radial glazing bars. Open-well staircase has embellished iron balusters with alternately embellished rods. Moulded cornices. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: area railings abut porch and return to left, embellished spearhead railings and newels, pier at left approx 1.5m high has shaped plinth with cornice and shaped cap; L-plan coped garden wall for approx 30m. HISTORICAL NOTE: RW and C Jearrad bought the Lansdown development from Pearson Thompson c1829-30, dismissing his architect, JB Papworth and continuing building to their own designs. It is reputed that the owner's choice of design for house was influenced by vacations spent in Switzerland. This is not as purely Swiss as, for example, Alpenfels at Leigh Woods near Bristol, but the very broad eaves and the unusually compressed upper storey with casements rather than sashes set in louvred shutters is the most distinctively "Alpine" aspect of the design.
