BARNET HAMPSTEAD GARDEN SUBURB ASMUNS PLACE Nos.45-59 (Odd)

GV II Terrace of artisans' cottages forming termination to cul-de-sac layout of Asmun's Place. 1908. Barry Parker and Raymond Unwin, possibly designed by Charles Wade - an important office assistant responsible for many designs in the old Suburb, including the houses on Willifield Way facing Willifield Green (q.v.) .Brown brick in Flemish bond with tile insets and gable kneelers, wood shingles to gable ends of crosswings and gable-facing dormers. Roofs of tile with swept eaves and exposed rafter ends. Two storeys. Eleven-window range to the block. Vernacular Revival style. An .extraordinarily clever variation of the double-ended hall house type, here stretched to its furthest limits; bilaterally symmetrical. Inside eaves of crosswings continue eaves line of long roof; to the outside the eaves extend further down. At the very centre of the composition a broad round-arch to rear, garden cross passage, turned in red brick with tile voussoirs; above a diminutive dormer which, by virtue of its small scale and in contrast to the gaping cross passage below, is highly expressive. Ground-floor openings are segmental arched, with tile insets to tympanum. All other openings are flat arched. Windows with casements of original design. Entrances to Nos. 49 and 55 in recessed porch entered through round diaphragm arch set at inside corner of crosswings. Entrances to centre pair on chamfered corner wall just inside haunches of round-arched passage. Entrances to Nos. 47 and 57 in cross wings, all doors of authentic design save that to No.47. Entrances to end units on rear. Ridge stacks to party walls of end units and between Nos. 49 and 51, 53 and 55.
