This one-time elegant road has probably been one of the least altered roads in central Hove. Built in the Upper Cliftonville estate between 1859 and 1863, more than a century later externally its houses were virtually unchanged and there had been no demolitions or additions.
This happy state of affairs came to an end in 1973 when this house was taken down to make way for a small block of flats. Unique in being the only detached villa in the entire road, Ventnor Lodge was a pleasing house of some character and it is doubtful whether the building which replaces it will tone in so well with the surrounding houses.
Date of photographs 18 March 1973.
