12 Pelham Crescent

One of a pair of houses c1870-75 possibly by John Loverseed. Layout of The Park Estate, by Hine & Evans 1855-56, anticipated a sweeping crescent linking North Road with Lenton Avenue. However, continued use of nearby Barracks until c1870 resulted in Pelham Crescent becoming a cul-de-sac. In single household use. Red brick with stone dressings and double pitched slate roof. Two storeys plus attic and basement. Basement at garden level on Barrack Lane front. Two storey canted window bay with flat roof on main front facing Pelham Crescent with gable above. To the right, single storey hipped roof bay with gabled dormer at attic level above. Two storey flat roofed entrance bay abutting side facade with gabled dormer to main roof above. Gabled rear facade facing Barrack Lane with later bay window added possibly late 19c/early 20c. Garage building facing Barrack Lane, possibly by Cyril Haseldine for T.A.M. Hill c1951. Brickwork features include moulded red brick dentillation detail at eaves and gable verges, decorative blue brick banding and square inset panels at storey height level on front and side facades plus polychromatic brickwork to semicircular and segmental arched heads to a number of window openings. Stonework details include copings and sills generally, complete or partial window surrounds with splay reveals, moulded surround to main entrance doorway plus keystones and gable kneelers. Double pitched slate roof with prominent gables on front and rear facades. Also, brick gabled dormers on front and side facades. Clay ridge tiles. Upper sections of chimney stacks altered and original pots removed or replaced. Plain and glazing bar sash windows generally. Original red brick boundary wall and gate piers on Pelham Crescent with coursed rubble stone plinths. Stone pyramidal caps to gate piers. Half round red brick copings to wall with blue brick string course. Gate piers ‘patched’ with render. Also, render added to surviving sections of brick boundary wall on Barrack Lane.
