SY6879 ESPLANADE 873-1/21/129 (North side) 14/06/74 No.47A Charlotte Row (terrace) (Formerly Listed as: BOND STREET (North side) No.16)


Formerly Westminster Bank, now holiday accommodation above public toilets. 1883. Red brick in English bond, Portland stone ashlar and dressings, green Westmorland slate roof. A very vigorous interpretation of French Renaissance with Flemish Renaissance details. A very steep hipped roof is set behind a balustrade parapet with plain panels, above main walling carried out in flush banded brick and stonework in the manner of Norman Shaw. PLAN: a long but shallow plan, with its principal frontage to Bond Street, and returning with the narrow front to the Esplanade, where it reduces to a single-storey flat-roofed pavilion. Ground floor is now in use as public conveniences, and the upper floors, approached from the Esplanade are used as a boarding house. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, attic and basement. The Bond Street front is in 2 bays, plus the single-storey pavilion to the right. The principal range has lofty Dutch-gabled dormers with scrolled pediments behind the balustrade with corner urns, inflected to the oriels below, which are deep semicircular bows in 2 floors containing plain lights with curved plate glass, and with a transom at first floor. The stonework is richly detailed, including decorative pilasters and moulded entablatures; the oriels are carried on bold paired stone brackets which spring from broad mullions in the ground-floor windows, which are of 2 and 3-lights respectively. To the right is an arched doorway under an entablature and high trapezoidal head with scrolls and a small pediment; the heavily modelled original 3-panel door with embellishments is still in situ. In the ashlar plinth, which rises to the ground floor sill level, are 2 openings with segmental heads to Mannersit keystones, and a grille with pavement access to a basement. The pavilion to the right has a lofty single light with transom, and, low right, a plain square opening with a door under a transom light. This unit has a stone balustrade with

some plain panels, and the high plinth, both continued to the short return front which contains a pair of 2-light casements with a transom and king mullion. The main party wall to the left has a lofty banded stack with dentil capping, tied back by a slated gable roof to the steep hipped end with vase-like finial. On the Esplanade front, behind the single-storey pavilion, the main gable wall contains a single light each side of central walling at first and second floors, under the continued balustrade with corner urns. At the centre is a lofty banded stack, tied back to the steep hipped roof by a slated gable roof, and with a decorative scrolled pediment at half-height. The capping has a dentil cornice. INTERIOR: not inspected.
