11 Peveril Drive

Also known as ‘Ivanhoe Lodge’, built c1870-75 with Hine & Evans as the possible architects. The building forms one half of a pair in a prominent corner position at the junction of Peveril Drive and Kenilworth Road. Single household use. Two storeys plus attic storey and basement. Later flat roofed garage building added in previous yard area. Red brick facades with rich variety of brick and stone details. Corbelled bull nose brick detail at eaves and gable verges, forming open pediments, plus a combination of flush or projecting red and blue brick string courses mainly at storey height levels. Projecting brick pilasters at first floor level on east facing wing with pointed, arches, brick voussoirs and stone imposts. Pointed brick arches generally to first floor window openings plus stone surrounds to door and window openings on ground floor including splayed corner window with stone colonnette adjacent to main entrance door. Stone band course at first floor level with circular ornamental stone patera panels. Also, quatrefoil shaped window opening within moulded stone oculus surround plus small decorative stone under sill panels. Most of the stonework has now been painted. Gabled roof with slates, clay ridge tiles plus lead valleys and flashings. Part of a brick chimney stack, originally with a corbelled brick cap, buff ‘crown’ pots, brick relief patterning and a blue brick projecting string course has been taken down. A number of original rainwater fittings have been replaced. Generally sliding sash windows, some with single glazing bars. A number of roof windows have been recently added. Apart from the later garage building the original garden area survives together with the brick and stone boundary wall and piers adjacent to Kenilworth Road and Peveril Drive. Part of the boundary wall to Peveril Drive has been removed to provide car access to the garage. The front garden wall adjacent to 2 Kenilworth Road is a later addition as the front garden area of the two houses was originally shared without division.
