Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

An important survival of a high quality early-mid 18th century town house which retains its character and several historic features of note, including an unusual splat baluster staircase. A Pierre Hamon house shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Mid-terrace, three-storey with basement, top storey later addition, three-bay. Front elevation: slate roof with chimney on west. Hand finished ashlar facade with arched openings. All is framed by a pair of classical pilasters and topped by an eaves level ashlar band. Lined-out render covers the later top level and divides the lower storeys. Windows are 4 pane (2, 2) sashes with horns (the one next to the door has lost its glazing-bars). The street level shop window is a replica of an early 19th century bowed shop window (its original is said to exist in an outbuilding to the rear). The timber panelled door has an overlight and is reached by a flight of granite steps with an early 19th century handrail.

Interior interest includes a very unusual staircase, only six other examples are known, including the staircase at No 16 Hill Street (0400278) built in 1748. They are thought to be the work of one carpenter and may have been inspired but Breton staircases. They are distinctive in having serpentine balusters flat sided as having been cut from boards.
