Title
Hardwick House in Chislehurst Road
Description
Chislehurst Road is in a high quality residential area developed on Richmond Hill after the arrival of the railway serving Richmond in 1856, which now lies within the St Matthias conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames. Its buildings comprise a number of mainly semi-detached mid to late Victorian villas of similar style and grandeur, retaining much of their original appearance and all being listed as Buildings of Townscape Merit. This view shows Hardwick House at number 1, exceptional in its design in that it is a detached building with a stepped facade and elevated basement level, located on a corner site adjoining Onslow Road. It also features a gateway with a door and glazed portico between a pair of substantial pillars presenting steps rising to a first-floor entrance with an adjoining balcony, both of which have a glazed canopy supported by understated ornamental ironwork. Unfortunately, a somewhat distracting parking ticket machine with adjacent pay and display sign post has since been erected just to the right of the gateway. Like many grand buildings in the area, Hardwick House has been divided internally into flats. A Triumph Herald can be seen parked in the road in front of the gateway.
