TQ3284SW ALWYNE ROAD 635-1/54/11 (North West side) Nos.5 AND 6

GV II

Pair of semi-detached houses. c.1855. Developed, and probably designed, by James Wagstaffe. Yellow brick laid in Flemish bond, stucco, roofs of slate. Three storeys over basement; the principal fronts two bays wide. Basement stuccoed with banded rustication. Ground and first-floor windows flat-arched with moulded architraves and cornice on consoles; second-floor windows have architraves now without mouldings dying into the cornice band; window guards to ground floor of both houses and sashes with margin lights throughout. Boxed eaves, hipped roof and stacks on party wall. On no 5, steps up to recessed open porch in two-storey side wing, the porch round-arched with Doric pilasters and double order to arch; banded rustication and keystone to the outer arch; panelled door and overlight; first-floor window flat-arched in moulded architrave; cornice and blocking-course. No 6 appears to have been enlarged by three bays east of the principal front, not long after the original building date. First bay reads as the former porch bay, now with ground-floor window matching principal front and first-floor window flat-arched with moulded architrave; modillion cornice and blocking-course; second-floor window with cambered arch set back. Second bay has two exposed sides and forms a tower in its upper part; steps up to round-arched entrance framed by panelled Doric pilasters with archivolt, keystone, panelled door of original design and fanlight. First floor has coupled round-arched windows with pilasters and plain archivolt on south and east sides, and corners treated in stucco with panelled angle pilasters; modillion cornice continued from first bay; second-floor windows round-arched and with unmoulded architraves and elaborate shell-moulds in the tympana; stucco quoins, boxed eaves on consoles, hipped roof. Third bay has openings only to the east: ground floor has three round-arched windows, the centre one larger, linked by pilasters and plain semi-circular mouldings and set within a panel of stucco; balcony with iron railings. Moulded storey band and sill band to first floor which has similar arrangement of windows not set within a stucco panel. String course from the springing, quoins to ground floor and panelled pilasters to first floor, boxed eaves and hipped roof. (Historians' file, English Heritage London Division).
