House Barlow: Kelvedon House
Bloemfontein, Free State

William Henry STUCKE: Architect
Date:c1891
Client:Alfred Barlow
Type:Homestead
Status:Demolished
Street:103 John's Street

The big, irregular brick house on the corner of St. John's Street (now Voortrekker Street) and Markgraaff Street designed by W.H. Stucke in the nineties reflects Barlow's position in the community, as well as the tastes of the time. With the varying patterns of its multi-facetted corrugated iron roof, chimneys, roof ornaments, verandah with intricate fretwork and bay windows, the house, excessive as it may in some respects be, is a fine example of Late Republican architecture in the Free State, and one can only regret that this building has also been demolished.
(Schoeman 1985:74)
