TQ3303NW ARUNDEL PLACE 577-1/50/7 (East side) Arundel Place Mews Nos.11 & 12 and attached walls and piers

GV II

Mews, built to serve the east range of Lewes Crescent and Sussex Square. 1840-1860. Stucco. Roofs of slate. Walls to Arundel Place of pebble with brick lacing courses. L-plan with a triangular forecourt enclosed by high wall to road. EXTERIOR: for the most part it has 2 storeys over basement. 10-window range to wall which forms the north border of the courtyard, in effect, the main elevation of the group; 7-window range wall enclosing east side of same. The return of north range, 2 windows, its rear has an 8-window range. The rear, or east-facing elevation of the other range, has a 4-window range. Tuscan Vernacular Revival style. A 4-window range section of the main elevation projects forward slightly to form a 2-and-a-half-storey bay topped by a pediment filled with a blind roundel; 2 round-arched openings, larger than any other openings in the complex and subordered, to the ground floor of this, that to the right an entrance. A second entrance, this elliptical arched, set in the east arm of the group. All other ground-floor openings but for one are round arched and connected by a broad, plain springing band to give the impression of an arcaded cortile. The remaining windows are flat arched. All windows with projecting sills. Broad eaves with projecting roof rafters to all elevations. Many windows with sashes of an original design off the courtyard: to ground floor 6-pane lower sashes with 9-pane uppers, many of the latter with glazing bars in a semicircular pattern. On the first floor, 4 sashes of an original design survive, all 3 x 3; there are three 6 x 6 sashes of an original design to the low building to the south, which is included in this listing for its group value. The theme of an arcaded ground floor picked up on the north-facing, or rear elevation of the main block, but here the windows are flat arched set in round-arched recesses; plain springing band to all. Only 2 sashes of original design on this elevation: 3 x 6 in the second- and third-window ranges of the first floor. Not included in this listing are the group of low buildings attached to the north-east corner of the mews. INTERIOR: not inspected. Included for group value with the major Lewes and Sussex Crescents.
