19 Castle Gate, Nottingham
19 Castle Gate, Nottingham
A magnificent mid-Georgian town house, dated c1776 and possibly designed by Samuel Stretton, who had been John Carr's assistant at nearby Colwick Hall (SK6039 : Colwick Hall, Nottingham), and whose brother, William, was also an active local builder-architect. Broad five-bay quoined facade crowned by a parapet. The windows have moulded lintels and triple keystones, those on the first-floor additionally with sill band and blind balustrades. The central bay is emphasised by means of its greater width and tripartite pedimented doorcase under a tripartite window with a large fanlight (SK5739 : Detail of 19 Castle Gate, Nottingham (1)). The rear has a full-height bow: SK5739 : The rear of 19 Castle Gate. Grade II* listed.
Probably built for William Stanford, a hosiery merchant, but converted to offices as early as 1928.
