SE2933 : 8 Park Square, Leeds

taken 8 years ago, near to Leeds, Great Britain

8 Park Square, Leeds
8 Park Square, Leeds
The grandest house in the square, built c1790 to the designs of either William Hargrave or William Lawrance. The projecting central bays are topped by a pediment containing an oculus, and the doorcase has an open pediment with a festoon. Grade II listed.
The Georgian proportions are spoiled somewhat by the later plate-glass windows. Comparison with a building with its original sashes is instructive in demonstrating the importance of window proportions in Georgian architecture (e.g. SE2933 : 9 Park Place, Leeds).
