Haddon House : Cavendish Crescent North

One of a group of similar houses built in pairs on Pelham Crescent c1868-70 by John Loverseed. John Loverseed built Haddon House for himself. Layout of The Park Estate, by Hine & Evans 1855-56, anticipated a sweeping crescent linking North Road with Lenton Avenue. However, continued use of Barracks in area resulted in Pelham Crescent becoming a cul-de-sac. House now divided into flats. Three storeys plus basement. Originally red brick facades with stone dressings,(?), now rendered and painted. Double pitched slate roof with gables and gabled dormers. Original single and two storey pitched roof rear extension and outbuildings now altered and added to. Single storey, flat roofed, canted window bays to main front and entrance facades. Glazing bar sash windows generally with a number of alterations and additions. Venetian window to gable on garden front. Original window openings in singles or pairs plus a number with semicircular arched heads. Panelled main entrance door with half round overlight. 20c extension to original flat roofed single storey entrance porch. Moulded stone surrounds to original door and window openings, now painted. Sill band with brackets at first floor level on all facades. A number of original moulded stone details including cornices and copings to canted window bay on garden front, now removed. Full width decorative band/frieze at eaves level on main entrance facade. Prominent gables on main front and entrance facades with gabled dormer on front and rear facades. Double pitched slate roof to original two storey rear extension with shared gabled dormer. Bargeboards to gables and gabled dormers with overhanging eaves and timber fascias. Panelled red brick chimney stack with corbelled head, now rendered. Other stacks partially taken down. Original rainwater fittings replaced and further pipework added. Originally, large garden area used communally with No.19 Pelham Crescent but now subdivided. Part of original garden area now used for car parking and access. Original brick and stone boundary wall adjacent to Cavendish Crescent North, now rendered. Original gated openings to house and rear outbuildings now enlarged for car access.
