1 and 2 Albury Square / 3 and 5 North Road

A large building made up of a number of dwellings, constructed c1878-80, probably in conjunction with the stables in Albury Square and Carnoustie Lodge, a former coach house. The stables were converted c1919 for garaging and finally replaced with new build dwellings c 1976. The lower two storeys of the four storey building are accessed from Albury Square (Nos.1 and 2) and the upper storeys from North Road (Nos. 3 and 5). Nos. 1 and 2 Albury Square and No.5 North Road are in single household use, No.3 North Road has been divided into two flats. The original building envelope remains predominantly intact and in reasonable condition. Apart from the missing chimney stacks at roof level there have been no significant external alterations or additions. Gabled natural slate roof with clay ridge tiles, lead valleys plus brick corbelled eaves and gable verges with prominent brick modillion courses, generally similar in style to Carnoustie Lodge and outbuildings to
Ellington House. Original cast iron gutters and downpipes have been replaced with black plastic. Red brick walls with
ornamental brick and stone string courses, shallow rectangular window bays on each facade and stone surrounds to door and window openings. Much of the stonework has now been over painted. Venetian windows at third floor level and Italianate styling to a number of the smaller existing and blind window openings. Stone shaft mullions to bay window openings. Some weathering problems to stone cornices particularly on the bays. Vertical sliding sash windows generally. External areas are limited to a small yard and lawn adjacent to the north facing facade, small entrance areas adjacent to North Road and a shared paved area in part of Albury Square. Part of the original boundary wall adjacent to the entry to Albury Square has been rebuilt but the section of original brick boundary wall on North Road and abutting the public planted area at the junction of North Road and Tattershall Drive remains.
