Stanford House

19 Castle Gate

-

This house is one of the most beautiful Georgian residences in the city.  It was built c 1775 and gets it's name from a Mr. Stanford a very wealthy silk merchant. (The street to it's right is also named after him).  Before then there was the town house of the Howe family of Langar.   Richard, Admiral Howe was probably the most famous family member. On the 1st June 1794 he defeated the French fleet off Brest.  The Victory was subsequently celebrated as "The Glorious First of June".   The building was purchased in 1928 by Robert Barber & Sons, solicitors who occupied the house until 2008. The first mention of a house at 19 Castle Gate was in 1684.

The beautiful Venetian window and the entrance below it are of particular note and I understand that the recently restored interior of the building is equally fine and beautiful with many original features including Georgian fireplaces and Egyptian style columns.
