Mitre Road, central London

Part of a conservation area, Mitre Road was laid out in the early twentieth century. Lambeth Council's report notes: "It is a dignified tree-lined avenue of three storey apartment buildings of stock brick with white painted lintels over the double-hung four over four paned timber sash windows. The steeply pitched clay tiled roofs have a traditional eaves construction and are surmounted by prominent chimney stacks of stock brick with red-brick copings. Each property has a substantial rendered porch on tapering brackets set between two storey square bay windows. The frontages are set back from the pavement behind simple metal railings."
