2 Park Ravine

House built in an area previously used as garden allotments known as Fishpond Gardens. There are records of a counterpart lease for the property from William Gladstone and Lord De Tabley to William Chapman in 1865, followed in 1874 by a Notice to the Duke of Newcastle of a bequest of the property from William Chapman to Harriett Williams. House remains in single household use. Much altered. Original building is two storeys with late Victorian two storey pitched roof extension and more recent single storey flat roof extensions including a garage. Plans for a garage were being prepared in 1940. Paint and render added to original brick facades. Remnants of original corbelled brick eaves with sawtooth detailing. Original brick chimney stacks above eaves level have been taken down or altered. Shaped, central painted brick bay with stone dressings on garden facing facade. Stone door and window surrounds generally on original house with hoodmoulds to semicircular arched openings and decorative moulded stone panel above door on garden facade. Stone dressings to original door and window openings remain unpainted. Hipped roof to original building with plain tiles and bonnet-tile hips. Much of original corbelled brick eaves have now been removed or concealed by later alterations including wood fascias and soffits. Original cast iron rainwater fittings have been replaced. A number of sash windows survive but the majority of external doors and windows have been replaced. Timber platform with balustrading added adjacent to garden door opening to provide ramped access. Original garden allotment area was retained as part of garden to original house but this area has now been used for separate residential development of four ‘townhouses’ c1975. Part of original brick boundary wall to Park Ravine and Clifton Terrace survives with alterations including a retaining section adjacent to a large garden tree which has been rebuilt with concrete blockwork and rendered and painted.
