23 Lenton Road

One of the early large houses in The Park c1858-60. The ‘as built’ form of the original building remains mainly intact with no extensions. There is some indication of a possible single storey ground floor original extension in the central bay of the Lenton Road facade but this has now gone. The building is again in single household use after being previously converted into three flats. Three storeys above ground level plus basement. Predominantly red brick facades with plinths plus string courses and corbelling at eaves level. Prominent blue brick decorative patterns on chimney stack brickwork. Part of brick facade at ground level facing Lenton Road has been rendered and painted, suggesting alterations in this area. Pair of single storey canted stone window bays on garden front plus a variety of stone dressings including door and window surrounds, string courses, brackets, kneelers, gable copings, finials and plinths. Most of the stonework remains unpainted. Gabled slate roof with clay ridge tiles. Gable dormers on garden elevation. The upper parts of all original chimney stacks have been taken down and rebuilt in a different style. Original rainwater fittings have been replaced. Prominent original main entrance doorway on west facing facade in classical style with stone entablature plus rectangular pilasters with Doric capitals flanking semicircular arched opening over door and fanlight. Original doors and windows to stone canted bays overlooking the garden have been replaced and parts of the bay openings have been altered. There have also been alterations and additions to the windows. A number of original sash windows set within a combination of rectangular or semicircular arched stone openings survive. Other windows including gable dormers on garden elevation and Venetian window style openings on Lenton Road facade appear to have been added later. The house retains its original garden area together with the original brick garden boundary walls adjacent to the neighbouring houses Nos.21 and 25 Lenton Road. Brick boundary wall adjacent to Lenton Road has been rebuilt with gated opening for car access.
