ROYAL CRESCENT 656-1/30/1428 No.1A 05/08/75


House to right of No.1 Royal Crescent (qv), on site of former farmhouse. Mid C18, with mid C19 and C20 alterations. MATERIALS: Limestone ashlar, hipped slate roof with two long moulded stacks to centre and right. PLAN: Two blocks at right-angle to each other, comprising larger rectangular block to right and lesser block to left forming link with Royal Crescent. EXTERIOR: Two storeys with basement, two windows to large block facing Upper Church Street, single bay to Royal Crescent return front; two windows to link block to left. Returned eaves cornice and plinth, two windows to first floor and one to ground floor right, right-of-centre set back five-panel door flanked by basement windows (paired to right) set into plinth. 'UPPER CHURCH STREET' inscribed in Roman capitals at first floor height. Plate glass sash windows with painted reveals. Lower coped parapet, cornice and frieze to link block: two plate glass sash windows to first floor, six/six-pane sash window to left of C20 door. INTERIOR: Not inspected. HISTORY: The appearance of this corner block has changed considerably since the Royal Crescent was first built. Thomas Malton's print of `The Building of the Royal Crescent' of 1767 shows the completed pavilion to the right, with a single story link to No.1 fronted with two blind windows, and ground floor Venetian windows facing south and east on the main building. The building has undergone considerable alterations, probably during the C19 but an inspection of the stonework shows the openings for the Venetian windows still surviving (albeit smaller than those shown in the Malton view). Bronze plaque to George Saintsbury, man of letters, resident here 1916-1933, on link.
