GV II

House, now offices. Built 1863 and extended 1870-4 by George Devey for E. C. Baring, the banker. Red brick with purple brick diaper work; weatherboarded gables; gabled Welsh slate roof; brick stacks. Pictur- esque neo-vernacular style. Asymmetrical plan and 2-storey elevations. Main west elevation has 3-stage tower with staircase projection to right; flat brick arches over casement windows; moulded brick cornice and battlemented parapet. To front of this tower is a half-glazed door set in moulded basket-arched architrave, and porch with wood mullions to glazed panels, a coved pilaster cornice, and a parapet with late C17-style balustrade. To left of porch are 4 asymmetrically- planned gabled projections which, from nearest to the porch, have quatrefoil gable light, square bay window with double-gabled roof, and, finally, a square bay window; 3 gables nearest porch have weather- boarding, all have bargeboards and wood-mullioned and transomed windows, and gable to left has segmental brick tympanum arches over openings. Range in neo-Tudor style to right of porch, with 2-storey bays facing west and east and 5 bay south elevation with gabled fronts to east and west cross wings, all with label moulds over chamfered stone- mullioned windows. East elevation has 4 gables to centre, with barge- boards, weatherboarded upper gables, and weatherboarded jettied first floor to right with chamfered wood quoin blocks; splayed oriel window with similar treatment to left; flat brick arches over wood-mullioned and transomed casements. Short brick screen wall with keystone to elliptical-arched doorway connects multi-gabled range to 4-stage tower on right, which has similar casement windows having moulded brick string courses and cornice, and similar shaped floating cornices over ground and first-floor windows. Interior noted as having original Devey doors, panelling and staircase. This house is one of Devey's earliest commissions and its early use of the neo-vernacular style anticipates the later work of Shaw and Webb.
