13 Pelham Crescent

One of a group of houses in pairs c1868-70 by John Loverseed. Nos.11 and 13 Pelham Crescent were mortgaged by John Loverseed to Robert Knight in March 1868. Layout plan of The Park Estate, by Hine & Evans 1855-56, anticipated a sweeping crescent linking North Road to Lenton Avenue. However, continued use of nearby Barracks until c1870 resulted in Pelham Crescent becoming a cul-de-sac. In single household use. Large part of original garden area to side of house separately developed c1972 into single dwelling. Two storey original house plus attic and basement. Originally red brick facades (?) now rendered and painted with stone dressings. Gabled slate roof. Original single storey rear extension with 20c additions. Plans by Evans, Clark and Woollatt Architects for alterations to house plus garage c1920-23 for Dudley Forman. Single storey, flat roofed canted window bay on garden front. Glazing bar sash windows generally in singles and pairs. Prominent window group with semicircular arched heads and moulded cornices on side and garden elevations. Venetian style window opening to main gable on road and garden fronts. Semicircular arched heads to windows in gabled dormers. A number of window alterations, additions or replacements. Moulded stone surrounds to door and window openings now painted, plus sill bands, brackets and string courses. Originally full length decorative band at eaves on side elevation, now rendered over. Alterations to openings at ground floor level with 20c additions. Double pitched slate roof with symmetrical gable and gabled dormer arrangement on road and garden fronts. Bargeboards to gables. Part of roof now re-slated. Side wall and central chimney stacks, now altered, rendered or painted. Original pots replaced. Original rainwater fittings replaced and further pipework added. Roof windows added. Original brick/stone boundary wall with gate piers to Pelham Crescent plus original coal house outbuilding now largely replaced by later development, garage and vehicular gates.
