"The oldest houses in Bayswater facing the main road, apart from nos. 100-1, date from the 1820s and are at Orme Square. Brown-brick town houses of three storeys and basements, originally in matching groups of three, flank the open end of the small square. An eagle on a double Tuscan column, of unknown origin, stands in front of a garden which is surrounded on three sides by a mixture of town houses and Italianate villas, on a modest scale and with some rebuilding and alterations.
