44 The Ropewalk

Detached house c1828-29. Now subdivided and converted into offices. One of a group of houses on The Ropewalk which were amongst the first to be built in The Park c1828-34. Formerly gardens, the site had prominent views over Nottingham Terrace, (now named Park Terrace), and across the Park. The 4th Duke of Newcastle had grand aesthetic aspirations for a select ‘residential plan’ in The Park and by identifying these plots and commencing building work he aggravated local feelings concerned at impending loss of The Park as an area of common recreational use. Two storeys plus basement. Stucco facades with hipped slate roof. Originally, simple rectangular house plan. Now a number of two and three storey side and rear extensions. Alterations and additions so extensive that form of original house difficult to identify. On main front facing Park Terrace, ground floor window opening on original facade enlarged and window replaced. Glazing bar sash window at first floor level with moulded surround. Above, overhanging corniced eaves with modillion brackets and plain band in shallow relief. Late 19c two storey canted window bay added with 3no. plain sash windows at each level. Moulded reveals to bay windows at ground floor level with cornice above. To the right 19c and 21c two storey side extensions. 19c and 20c additions to rear facing The Ropewalk including two storey flat roofed abutment to rear facade with three storey wing extending to boundary. Glazing bar sash window at first floor level on remaining section of original facade with moulded surround. Overhanging eaves above with modillion brackets and plain band. Elsewhere, combination of later plain and glazing bar sash windows plus casements. Pair of central chimney stacks with plinths, separate flues and moulded caps, now rendered and painted. Buff crown chimney pots. Yard with rendered boundary wall to The Ropewalk, now altered with later gate opening. Original garden area to main front adjacent to Park Terrace now used for car parking with alterations to boundary wall and later openings.
