XII.—NO. 23 HOXTON SQUARE.
The freehold is a portion of the More estate.
This is a three-storey stock-brick building, with attic and basement. Some of the rooms have bolection-moulded deal panelling with moulded chair rail and cornice, and are characteristic of the work of the latter part of the 17th century (Plate 68). The back room on the second floor has a moulded deal mantel-piece. The staircase has moulded close strings and the half-landings are kept clear of the outer wall, thus allowing light to travel to the lower floors. The front room on the first floor has a doorway with a moulded head and pulvinated frieze.
Condition of premises.
Good. Utilised as an upholstering factory.
