Park Lane 58-76
Road: Park Lane, Teddington
This is a group of 5 semi-detached cottages, each pair in a slightly different style and seem to be of slightly different periods, but thought to be built between 1860 and the 1880s.
Nos. 58 and 60 are a pair of semi-detached, 2-storey, red brick cottages with rendered quoins, reveals and arches, under a slate roof, thought to date between 1860-1870. The sash windows have rendered ornamental lintels and surrounds. The pair are divided by a plain rendered pilaster. At the time of the 1970s Survey both cottages had an entrance at the side. This is still the case with no. 58. The windows are no longer original and there is a rear extension. No. 60 has a side addition with front door and window above.
All the following are thought to be somewhat later in date.
Nos. 62 and 64: a pair of semi-detached red brick cottages with ornamental yellow brick reveals, quoins and arches over sash windows, with slate roof and recessed front door.
Nos. 66 and 68: a pair of 2-storey, semi-detached stock brick cottages under slate roofs with red brick quoins, reveals and arches over sash windows.
Nos. 70 and 72: a pair of 2-storey, semi-detached cottages stock brick with rendered quoins, ornamental plaster arches to door and over sash windows, bay window alongside recessed front door and ornamental brackets to cills.
Nos. 74 and 76: a pair of 2-storey, semi-detached cottages, red brick with yellow brick arches, reveals and quoins, slate roof, sash windows above and bay window alongside recessed front door.
"I have lived in Park Lane since December 1998. I would describe my house as follows: A traditional mid-Victorian halls adjoining villa-style semi-detached house with attractive brick work and benefitting from many original features. Often described by visitors as 'resembling a Tardis' the house is deceptively spacious with an attractive garden laid out in traditional style. Built in 1865, I believe." (2013 resident).
