Chalcot Square, north side

Terraced houses on the north side of Chalcot Square, Primrose Hill, London. Listed Building. 1855-60. Photograph and text 2008 by Jacqueline Banerjee.

Some of the architectural details mentioned in the government listing for this terrace are: "Prostyle Doric porticoes supporting balustraded stucco balconies continuing across 1st floor windows" and the "continuous cornice with keystones above windows." There are "console brackets between and pediments over" the central windows on this floor. Of course, there have been alterations since they were first built, especially additions to the upper storeys. But these features are clearly original.

Chalcot Square and Chalcot Crescent, which are quite separate and do not touch at any point, occupy land that once belonged to the old Chalcot estate — the name of which gave rise to "Chalk Farm."
