The houses are finished.
Including the balconies as originally positioned:
Lovely traditional delicate design for the smaller house, while the larger one oddly features a modern pattern?
All the shiny bolts need to be painted - something for the snag list.
Also magnificent iron flourishes on the corners of the railings:
...if perhaps a little off in scaling? Maybe it's just the large gate next to it.
I don't think we've seen such attention to detail with railings in any reproduction in thirty years.
The completed doorcase of one of the two principal houses, with perhaps a little OTT Regency furniture:
(have a fanlight detail later)
The smaller far left-hand replica, the final house in a series of similar Georgian houses, has had an excellent reproduction doorcase installed:
An expert eye would be able to verify, but it would appear to be reconstitued stone given its very smooth surface, not to mention the complex detailing that would cost a fortune to execute in natural stone.
As can be seen, it's not identical to the one next door, but most of the doorcases in these smaller houses seem to have replaced the 18th century originals, given their current Regency character. This would fit with the fact that Gardiner's developments tended to attract fashion conscious merchant classes rather than stodgy old money. The amount of replacemnt plate glass about is also telling.
The door surround of this house and some brickwork did survive the demolitions though - alas it doesn't seem to have been incorporated into the new building. But overall a job exceedingly well done. Top marks to those responsible.
