Includes: No.1 SEVEN SISTERS ROAD. Shops, offices and perhaps also originally flats. Dated 1891 in a cartouche above the second-floor corner window. Light buff terracotta, roof of slate. Five storeys, two-and-a-half window range to Holloway Road and to Seven Sisters Road, and one-window range to curved corner. The ground floor has C20 shop fronts except for segmental-arched entrance to northernmost bay in Holloway Road with inscription in frieze 'BATHURST MANSIONS'. Giant order of Corinthian pilasters decorated with elaborate festoons and other ornaments, to first, second and third floors, the first and second floors in two easternmost bays in Seven Sisters Road and two southernmost in Holloway Road treated as an arcade with round archivolts springing from just above the bases of the pilasters; first-floor windows flat-arched, the full-bay windows with scrolled consoles to the lintels except on the southernmost window in Holloway Road; the second floor has flat-arched pediments to the windows in half bays, tripartite windows stepped in height under the arcade, and flat-arched windows flanked by piers to the corner. The third floor has flat-arched windows, bulbous fluted corbelled balconies over the centre of the archivolts, and grotesque heads in sunk foliage roundels to either side of the balconies. Entablature with ornate frieze of festoons and heads in roundels under modillion cornice; balustraded parapet interrupted by massively ornate dormers with scrolled consoles, pilasters, enriched frieze and pediment with arabesque ornament to tympanum; at the corner, a contrastingly plain circular tower with Lombard frieze supporting cornice but roof or other details above now missing. Mansard roof with elaborate iron cresting, pilasters to stacks. A good example of elaborate late Victorian commercial terracotta work, and very striking in the broad streetscape of Holloway Road.
