Formerly known as: No.12 ROYAL TERRACE.

width, double-depth plan with double roof to a central valley,
and side entry to rear dogleg stair and lower service wing.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, 3 windows, all plain sashes; 2 late C19
gabled dormers with decorative barge-boards and finials above
3 sashes at second and first floors, the latter to a
full-width stone balcony with cast-iron balustrade. The
basement, rendered, has replacement windows.
At ground floor, on 8 stone steps with nosings an arch in 2
orders over an original panelled door with reeded transom and
plain fanlight. A plain band beneath the balcony, a moulded
cornice, blocking course and parapet. To the right are 2
stacks. Across the front, on a stone curb, original spearhead

The 2-storey service wing has a bowed 8:12:8-pane oriel, and
there is a lateral stack to the parapet.
Royal Terrace was originally of 18 houses, but built in 2
phases; No.73 was the last of the first phase; there is a
straight joint in the face brickwork between this house and
the adjoining No.72 (qv) registering the break in progress.
This is one of the better retained frontages, which would be
greatly improved by reinstatement of glazing bars.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
