TQ3103NW KING'S ROAD 577-1/46/350 (South side) 13/10/52 No.6 (Formerly Listed as: KING'S ROAD Premises to W of No.5 now Tradesmen's Entrance to the Queen's Hotel)

Terraced house, now part of Queen's Hotel (not included). c1825. Designed by Amon Henry Wilds. Stucco. Roof obscured by parapet. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and attic over basement with dormers above. 3 window-range. Ground floor rendered as banded, chamfered rustication becoming voussoirs and keystones to 3 segmental-arched openings. The side openings are filled with segmental-arched windows, a sill band to each. Basement windows below these are also segmental arched. The centre opening leads into a shallow porch, trapezoidal in plan, the returns panelled. The entrance is flat arched and has an overlight. There is a plain entablature band to the ground floor. 4 giant, fluted pilasters to first and second floors. The design of the capitals is a hybrid design, where the volutes of a Composite capital are replaced by Ammonite Shells, a reference to the architect's surname. There is an entablature with dentil cornice above the giant portico. The upper fascia of this entablature is level with the sills of attic windows. Applied to the attic storey are 4 plain pilasters aligned with those below and supporting an entablature above. The parapet topping the composition has 4 moulded piers, continuing the axes of the pilasters below. All upper-floor windows are flat arched with architraves, those to first and second floors with moulded, projecting sills. The first-floor windows have, in addition, a raised panel in the spandrel below each sill; above each lintel is an entablature with a boldly projecting cornice. The centre first-floor window has a deep pediment. The centre window on the second and attic floors is blocked. INTERIOR: not inspected.
