TQ3081NE BEDFORD ROW 798-1/101/1812 (East side) 24/10/51 Nos.15 AND 16 and attached railings (Formerly Listed as: BEDFORD ROW Nos.1-9 AND 11-17 (Consecutive))

GV II*

Pair of houses forming part of a terrace. 1717-18 by Robert Burford, carpenter, on land granted to him and George Devall, plumber, in 1716 by Dame Margaret Skipwith. Updated c1820. Brown and yellow stock brick with some refacing of upper storeys. Roofs not seen behind parapets. 3 windows each. EXTERIOR: 4 storeys, basement and attic. 2 rooms deep, with cross passage and closet wing. Brick bands at first floor level. Gauged red brick arches and dressings to flush frame sash windows. Wood architraved doorcases with good carved brackets, panelled soffits to flat hoods, No.15 with patterned fanlight, both with panelled doors. INTERIORS: No.15 with panelled entrance and staircase hall. Open-string staircase with decorated ends and carved turned balusters, unpainted, with corresponding dado on opposite wall having Corinthian pilasters at head, foot and turn of flights rises to first floor. Ground and first floor rooms with raised and fielded panelling and box cornices. On ground floor a panelled cross passage between front and rear rooms; in this space on upper floors a closed string staircase with turned balusters rises to third floor. Upper floors not inspected. No.16 with fully panelled entrance and staircase hall, the former with fluted Corinthian pilasters forming inner arch. Open-string staircase with decorated ends and twisted balusters, 3 per tread, rise to first floor with corresponding dado decorated with Corinthian pilaster strips at head, foot and turn of flights. Ground and first floors with full-height raised and fielded panelling and early C19 fireplaces. C20 stair on upper floors. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: cast-iron railings to areas, with decorative finials. HISTORICAL NOTE: these houses are comparable in quality with Nos 8, 9, 12 and 13 Bedford Row (qv). They are particularly interesting in that their ground-floor plan was not modified in early C19 by the incorporation of the cross-passages into the front rooms as buffet alcoves. The principal houses of this group form an exceptional group.
