Kirby House, Little Park Street, Coventry
Kirby House, Little Park Street, Coventry
One of three sublime early-Georgian houses surviving in the city centre. This is in a recognisable provincial Baroque style, very fine, but the pediment above the door pushes awkwardly into the window above and the capitals of the Corinthian pilasters are at mid-storey. It was built c1725, probably to the design of Francis Smith, and altered c1780 (e.g. the paterae above the capitals). Grade II* listed.
At the time it was occupied by a Citizens Advice Bureau.
