19 Lenton Road

An imposing house on a prominent corner plot, probably by Hine & Evans Architects c1850-1860. Now converted into five flats. Mainly three storeys with two storey original side
extension. Predominantly red brick facades with stone
dressings and inset buff brick panel frieze below eaves level. Unfortunately part of the facade facing Lenton Road has been rendered with the loss of original openings and the addition of an unsightly porch. Two shallow rectangular three storey window bays facing Lenton Road, canted two storey window bay on garden facing facade plus prominent octagonal corner bay with gabled dormers overlooking Park Ravine. Stone lintels, sills and surrounds generally to original door and window openings, predominantly plain apart from a number of semicircular arched openings with hood moulds over some windows and the original main entrance door, sadly now
partially infilled to form a window. Bulls-eye window opening on Lenton Road facade. Moulded stone cornices and string courses at storey height and eaves level with raking cornices to open-bed pediments at gables on Lenton Road facade and to gabled dormers on octagonal bay. Original moulded stone caps to a number of unaltered chimney stacks. Much of the stonework remains unpainted except for cornices and string courses, which have also been damaged or partly removed in some areas. Corbelled brick chimney stacks, partly altered, with a number of original chimney pots. Inset buff brick
decorative panels on stacks plus brick/stone string courses. Slate hipped and gabled roof with flat roofed dormers added later. Original rainwater fittings and soil pipes have been replaced with plastic. Although a number of original sash windows survive there have been some unsympathetic replacements and a number of new openings formed. Original external doors have also been removed or replaced. No
significant extensions to the original building. The setting of the house is enhanced by its corner location adjacent to the
excavated road down Park Ravine. Prominent Bulwell stone retaining wall forms the Park Ravine boundary, topped by original brick garden wall and stone balustrading. Stone bellied balusters have now been painted over. Only small sections of the original brick boundary wall to Lenton Road remain, now rendered and painted. A row of garages has replaced the original stone retaining wall facing Clifton Terrace. Original brick boundary wall adjacent to the garden of No.17 Lenton Road survives. Original garden area has recently been
subdivided by a low wooden fence.
