The ornate and striking facade of 100 Railway Crescent, with origins in the Victorian-era, is part of an architectural movement which still held popularity in the early 1900s.
Art Nouveau influences within this Queen Anne-build are used to great effect by way of large and ornate timber flourishes, influenced by the curves of nature. Here is a property of high drama and romanticism, just as the architect would have wished it.
