Built as the front range of the London Fever Hospital 1848-9 to the designs of Charles Fowler and David Mocatta; altered and added to for housing in 1991. Stone, red brick laid in Flemish bond, roofs of artificial slate. The range was composed as a central block of three storeys and three-window range, double-fronted, wings of two storeys and three-window range, and single-storey colonnades between them; the colonnade to the left appears to have been completely rebuilt, that to the right did not exist at the time of inspection. Central block has ground floor decorated with chamfered rustication; flat-arched entrance set back between pilasters in the soffits bearing a simplified entablature, overlight, panelled doors of original design with the upper panels glazed; the flat-arched windows either side also flanked by pilasters with simplified entablature; storey band; the upper floors having quoins and three windows each with architraves and panelled aprons, and each flanked by a Doric pilaster supporting an entablature now lettered 'OLD ROYAL FREE PLACE'; flat-arched windows to second floor, modillion cornice; pediment with oculus, formerly for a clock; side stacks; bracketed oriel to left-hand return. The wings have ground-floor decorated with chamfered rustication; flat-arched windows to ground floor; storey band; sill band to first-floor windows which are segmental-arched with architraves; modillion cornice; hipped roof; side stack; three flat-arched windows to inner return, the westernmost blank.
