GV II

Bank, now offices. Dated 1868 over doorway, by George Truefitt. Sandstone ashlar, slate roof. Rectangular plan on corner site. Eclectic style, with Gothic details. Three storeys, with a 4-window facade to Brown Street and 4:3-window facade to Chancery Lane, hinged on a 3-window semi-cylindrical oriel above ground floor; with channelled rustication at ground floor, enriched frieze and cornice above 2nd floor, and steeply-pitched roof with gabled dormers. The principal feature of both facades is the corner, which has a round-headed doorway in each side with incised decoration to the heads and enriched linked imposts, the doorways protected by a very prominent underhang to the oriel balcony, which has arch-vaults over the doorways and concave pendentives all richly carved, including a shield and the date 1868 in the centre; a wrought-iron balustrade to the balcony, tall curved French windows at 1st floor with pilaster strips and elaborate consoles to an enriched cornice, curved casements at 2nd floor with enriched surrounds, and an attic turret with gables over windows which have foliated colonnettes and carved tympana, the whole finished with a wrought-iron corona. Otherwise, each facade has a 3-bay arcade of windows in style matching the doorways, plus a doorway to the right of that to Brown Street; tall casements at 1st floor with cornices on consoles and linked pseudo-balconies on brackets, a semi-circular balcony to the window over the right-hand doorway, and windows at 2nd floor and attic level like those of the oriel; and the further end of the Chancery Lane facade has a wide round-headed archway at ground floor, and windows like the others but without the balcony at 1st floor. Interior not inspected.
