TQ 2980 NW CITY OF WESTMINSTER BURLINGTON GARDENS W1 70/34 24.2.58 No 7 (Uxbridge House) including No 1 OLD BURLINGTON STREET GV II*

Town Mansion. 1721-23. Built as Queensbury House by Giacomo Leoni for Lord Clifton; finished for the Duke of Queensbury, enlarged and altered for Lord Uxbridge by the younger John Vardy and Joseph Bonomi 1785-89 and with alterations by Philip Hardwick on conversion to bank in 1855. Front elevation of brick faced with Portland stone; slate roof. A significant early Palladian design sensitively enlarged and adapted by Vardy. 3 storeys and basement. 10 windows wide. Rusticated arcading to ground floor, framing windows, and central Roman Doric coupled column portico added by Hardwick for bank. Recessed glazing bar sashes. The upper floors are articulated by a giant order of Composite pilasters rising from pedestals to entablature and balustraded parapet. The tall 1st floor windows have architraves all, apart from outermost bays, with cornices, and give onto geometric cast iron balony carried out over portico. Cast iron area railings with "baluster" panelled standards and lampholders. The 8 bay return of brick to Old Burlington Street is probably largely Leoni's though heightened and has Vardy's Roman Doric porch. Stone plat and sill bands to 1st floor and stone cornice over 2nd floor. 4 bay plain Vardy return in brick to Savile Row extended by stone faced 1 storey and basement banking hall extension of 4 bays by P. C. Hardwick c. 1876; architraved and pedimented windows, entablature and balustraded parapet. The interior, although eastern half was altered for bank with ornately classical top lit large banking hall to rear, retains the basic elements of Leoni's house to west, in particular the stone staircase with wrought iron rail, together with the Vardy-Bonomi alterations including the coffered with plasterwork by Joseph Rose over the stairs with panelled niches to walls and Rose's plasterwork to the Committee Room ceiling etc
