Our heritage at the Georgian House Hotel
William Chinnery Mitchell was one of several master builders who worked with William Cubitt to create Pimlico. The area was developed between 1836 and 1865. The principle was that terraced lines of houses should appear as single, palatial extents, with large individual houses on each end. The earlier houses were Regency in feel, simple and pure in line, without the porticoes that became a feature of Pimlico between 1845 and 1860.
Cubitt dictated the general structure of the houses, but then the master builders were allowed freedom to embellish the stuccoed facades as they chose. William Chinnery Mitchell designed a section of Alderney Street, Cambridge Street, Warwick Way and St George’s Drive. He is responsible for the Clarendon Arms in Cambridge Street – an open, airy pub still popular today. Chinnery Mitchell created the best of the terraces in Warwick Way, with tall, thin balusters, roses under the coping, roof balusters and his signature string course. He lived in number 140 Warwick Way for many years until the late 1860’s – this is a beautiful bayed corner house. The Georgian House Hotel in St George’s Drive is a fine example of the best of his work, with a great many of the original features. The building has been sympathetically treated. To see good examples of William Chinnery Mitchell’s work the Clarendon Arms in Cambridge Street, and Georgian House Hotel in St George’s Drive are highly recommended. The Georgian House Hotel is still run today by direct descendents of William Chinnery Mitchell.
Georgian House Hotel today is run by the same family...
