11 Lenton Road

Early detached house c1865, possibly by architect Hine & Evans, together with a number of other houses along the southern side of Lenton Road. Significant external alterations and extensions possibly by Arthur Calvert c1898 including the replacement of single storey outbuildings on the west facade with a two storey extension, the addition of a first floor canted bay window on the garden elevation, a plain tile pitched roof canopy on timber brackets over the canted bays facing the garden plus a glazed porch with brick plinth and plain tile pitched roof at the main entrance doorway on the east facing facade. It is possible that part of the original outbuilding adjacent to the boundary wall to Lenton Road survives and is now used as a home office. House restored to single household use c1980 after previously being converted into flats c1946. Original garden area. Simple red brick facades with corbelled and bull nose brick detail at eaves. Blue brick eaves string course enclosing decorative band of inset buff brick or stone panels. Blue brick plinth. Diaper brick pattern on facade. Moulded stone surrounds to original window openings plus bull nosed corner detail at eaves. Stonework now painted. Slate hipped roof with clay hip tiles. A number of original cast iron rainwater fittings have been replaced. Red brick chimneystacks with plinths, string course and corbelled cap. Buff ‘crown’ pots. One stack remains unaltered. Sash windows to original openings, some with glazing bars. Probable changes to canted bays and window on garden facing facade during alterations c1898. Later windows include sash and casements, some with leaded lights. Original garden area enclosed by original brick garden walls. Part of original boundary wall to Lenton Road survives but there have been later alterations and additions including garage door openings and gate piers.
