800/0/10097 CHOLMELEY PARK 03-SEP-03 Highgate Cholmeley Lodge

GV II Block of 54 flats. 1934-5 to the designs of Guy Morgan. Yellow brick and cast stone, steel horzontal bar casement windows, concrete balconies and flat roofs. Block plan in the form three curved crescents giving a scalloped outline, staircase towers and lifts at rear, with trades stairs and service balconies forming compact services cores. Six storeys, with curved plan form emphasised by boldly projecting balconies on each floor, with projecting bays above the entrance to each section of the development. Cast stone panels between windows emphasise the banding of the main facade. Four entrance doorways set behind fluted surrounds under curved canopy and with glazed double doors complete with long handles. The roof was designed as a sun deck and banks of small individual stores served as windbreaks. In contrast to the stylish streamlining of the main elevation, exploiting southward views over the City and over Waterlow Park, the north elevation is simple, with exposed concrete lintels and functional access balconies for trades.

Interior. Each entrance hall is small, with stairs, having iron balustrading, running round a central lift. The flats not inspected.

This is one of the finest surviving 1930s' mansion blocks, by an acknowledged expert in the genre and which responds well to its site.
