For Archibold Grove.


 According to Wendy Hitchmough, Voysey designed a terrace of three houses, 12, 14, and 16 Hans Road,
 but a dispute with the client over fees led to A. H. Mackmurdo being commissioned to build number 12.
 Mackmurdo's house is on the right.

 According to Joanna Symonds, an earlier, preliminary design, published in The British Architect, 1892,
 shows roughcast instead of the executed red brick. The interiors have been considerably altered.

Pevsner's London 3: North West (with Bridget Cherry, 1991) says:

Hans Road. Nos 14-16 are by Voysey for Archibald Grove, MP, 1891 – among his earliest work. The funny little oriel windows are still a sign of his dependence on Shaw, but the rhythm of the facades is deliberately different from that prevailing in the neighbourhood: horizontal not vertical, with reduced storey heights, horizontal windows with unmoulded mullions, a curving parapet instead of gables, and the two porches tied together and decorated with a little Arts and Crafts ornament. The doors and surrounds are typical of the architect. (Original panelling inside No 16).
