Terrace row. 1817-24. Stock brick, part rendered with slate roof.
Three storeys and basement to left (5 bays), 4 storeys and basement
(6 bays) and taller 4 storeys and basement (4 bays). Rusticated base,
with continuous ground floor iron Doric colonnade with continuous
tented verandah on 1st floor with simple rails, trellised piers and
valancing, with circular and bobbin-shaped patterns. Parapet and stacks
ranged along whole length. End left house (No. 29) canted out of
segment, with cross window and Diocletian on 2nd floor and single margin
light French window with rectangular fanlight patterned to match the
iron work of the verandah. Half-glazed door to left with semi-circular
fanlight to left and large sash. All other houses with glazing bar sashes
to 2nd floor (some now sashes) and margin light French windows on 1st
floor with traceried rectangular fanlights (3 bays to each house unit).
Most verandahs divided between houses by wooden or spiked rail
partitions. Variety of doors, mostly still the original 8 panelled doors
with central moulded vertical piece with semi-circular fanlights, largely
still traceried. Basements with sashes, the areas (beneath the colonnade)
often now covered in, with variety of iron railings. Right return with
round headed window openings, shaped gable end and late C19 shop front
(now hotel entrance) with plate glass, boarded dado, central half-glazed
door and tremendous fascia culminated in a central pediment, all in
wood. Identical to Nos. 1 - 14, and completing the terrace bisected
by The Plains of Waterloo. Only 8 of the 15 units had been built by
the time of Collard and Hurst's map of 1822. (See also Busson,
Ramsgate, 105; B.O.E. Kent V 1983, 429).
