Cadogan Road

Designation date: May 1989
No of properties: 465
Area: 8 hectares

Designation summary
The special architectural and historic interest of this area can be summarised as: A mid 19th century housing development, forming the second stage of the Surbiton “New Town” conceived by Thomas Pooley and laterly built by Coutts and Company. Many of the houses are predominantly Victorian and of high quality. They range from narrow plots and short terraces in Cleveland Road to large Italianate villas on Cadogan Road and Grove Road.

Historic development
This conservation area includes the land between Maple Road and the River Thames, as far south as Cleveland Road. The plot of land originally formed part of “the Raphael Estate” which was sold off by Edward Raphael for residential development, to William Woods, a builder from Kingston. 

Key architectural features
Interesting buildings in the area include the former Congregational Church at No 103 Maple Road designed by Bath architect James Wilson and built in 1854 by Mr Ricketts. Nos 27-35 Cadogan Road erected in 1883 of red brick in the Flemish style are an interesting contrast to the more classical styles. They represent an early example of the vernacular influence which led to a transition from classical styles to the Domestic Revival styles in domestic architecture. The commercial properties on Maple Road including the Antelope Public House provide a good illustration of Victorian commercial street scene characteristics. “Spring Cottages” and St Leonard’s Square comprise of very small, two storey terraced artisans dwellings and although largely altered, are historically interesting in their layout and forms an offshoot to the more grand dwellings.
