Formerly known as: Nos.1-3 ROYAL TERRACE.
3 houses at end of terrace. 1816. Rendered, slate roofs.
One-room width, double-depth plan with double roof to central
valley, and side entry to rear dogleg stair and lower service
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, attic and basement developing to full 4
storeys at the rear where the ground falls away. Each 3
windows, sashes to stone sills, those to the first floor taken
down to floor level. No.82 has 2 original flat-roofed dormers
with 2-light casements above plain sashes, but at first floor
the upper sashes retain bars, and have small individual C20
balcony railings. Ground floor has a full-width shop front
incorporating the original doorway. No.83 has 2 dormers as
No.82, but retains 9-pane sashes at second floor and 15-pane
at first floor, with individual cast-iron balconies; it has a
full-width C20 shop front. No.84, the end house of the
terrace, has 2 gabled dormers, 4-pane sash at second floor and
plain sash to first and ground floors; the basement has
glazing-bar sashes. The door, to the left, is on 8 tiled
steps, in a plain arched reveal with an original panelled door
under a radial fanlight. A deep plain band at basement level,
a plain band to first floor, moulded cornice, blocking course,
cut down opposite one of the dormers to No.83, and parapet,
with 2 stacks to each right party wall. Across the full front
of No.84, returned to the door and stopped to the outer end by
a rendered wall, are original spearhead railings, with a gate
to the flight of stone basement steps.
The rear of Nos 82 & 83, which is rendered, has an eaves roof
rather than a parapet as the remainder. Some of the work is in
English garden wall bonding. No.82 has an early 3-storey
gabled wing, and a C20 tiled extension; No.83 has 2 dormers,
and No.84 a lower hipped service range. The right-hand gable,
to Gloucester Street, is plain.
Royal Terrace was originally of 18 houses, built in 2 phases,
with 2 end ranges of 3 houses each slightly stepped forward
from and higher than the central 12; this is the right-hand
three of that original composition, built in the first phase.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
