York House, Richmond (but not that one)

Before my trip north yesterday, I'd gone west to Richmond on Sunday. There, this ornate facade in George Street caught my eye. Unfortunately, as it's close to a larger, better known York House, finding anything out about it proved rather difficult!

This version may not be as old or aristocratic as its big sister, now town hall for Richmond Upon Thames. However, its fine windows, stained glass and elaborate plasterwork are definitely worth appreciation in their own right.

Beautiful. The rooms with the big windows must be marvellously light. I thought the building might be in Mark Girouard's book Sweetness and Light, but I can't see it there.
