Listing Text

Nos.1-9 (Consecutive)

(Formerly listed as Nos.1-9 (Consecutive) The Royal Adelaide Arms (No.9))



Planned terrace of small houses, one later converted to a public house, but converted back to domestic use. Mid C19, to designs by John Foulston. Stucco with stucco detail; roofs hidden behind parapet with moulded cornice, the end ones with altered pediments to front; brick end stacks. Double-depth plan, most of the houses arranged in mirror-image pairs with paired central doorways.

EXTERIOR: two storeys; each house a two-window range except for the end houses which have symmetrical one-window fronts. Twelve-pane hornless sashes originally but most now replaced with horned copies, with four-pane sashes, or have had glazing bars removed; No.2 has late C20 windows. All ground-floor windows have round-arched heads and are within recessed round-arched panels, except the end houses where the panels rise to below the pediment. Doorways have moulded hoods on consoles, overlights, and panelled doors where original. No.9 (The former Royal Adelaide Arms) has glazed shopfront to ground floor with moulded entablature and pilasters with consoles.

INTERIOR: not inspected but likely to retain original features of interest.

A rare survival of a planned group by Foulston, in a simpler version of his work around the Hooe.
