Shop buildings on Hill Rise
At the centre of this view is the shop at 44 Hill Rise, shown trading as BALDUR bookshop, in the Richmond Hill conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames. Listed locally as a Building of Townscape Merit, its single-storey shopfront has finialed consoles, one of which is shared with number 42. Like many of the shops on Hill Rise, this is likely to have been a later addition to an earlier brick house. Several second-hand books are on display in the shop windows, and the door presents a selection of bold floral illustrations. The shop is now Anna Boutique. To its left, the bow-fronted three-storey eighteenth-century building at 40-42 Hill Rise has the modern shop frontage for BARNES & BARNES ESTATE AGENT. Originally built as a wing of the adjacent Holbrook House, the building was Grade II listed in 1971; listing number: 1065433. Serving today as the office and shopfront of Savills, the building retains its impressive iron balustrades and finialed consuls although the high-level hoarding and the striped awnings shown to its upper-floor windows have been removed. A charity collection figure in the form of a giant panda and her cub is shown standing between the two shopfronts beyond a pair of coin-operated parking meters. To the right of BALDUR BOOKSHOP, the three-storey brick building 46 Hill Rise, also listed locally, has a shallower ground-floor shop extension, shown trading as David Singer. Also shown, a Ford Cortina estate is parked in front of BALDUR BOOKSHOP, and a Renault 4 occupies the adjacent bay, although only partially visible.
