Details

BERROW DRIVE 1. 5104 Edgbaston B15 Berrow Court Hotel SP 08 NW 6/3 II* 2. Built as a substantial private house, architect J H Chamberlain circa 1870-75. Akin, though not on such a grand scale, to the architect's later tour de force: Highbury. Typical of Chamberlain's mature red brick Gothic style with a wealth of cut and moulded brickwork with floral stone ornament and stone dressings. Two storeys and attics, compact assymmetrical L plan. Steep gable end tiled and crested roofs and steep gables. Tall moulded brick chimney stacks. Coupled and single pointed arch windows. Two storey canted bays to south garden front. Sash lights, some retaining decorative leading. Alterations and modernisation to parts of north front but retains shafted porte cochere. Although the interior has had alterations for hotel use, much of the interior decorative joinery and door furniture survives. Typical Chamberlain work with tongue and groove 'Gothic' panelling and brass furniture. The staircase again is typical of Chamberlain, top lit and with slender turned bannisters and Gothic newel posts. The drawing room (former library) retains fitted bookcase with Gothic details and an ornate fireplace with tilework and reredos like overmantel mirror.
