Listing Text


ADELAIDE STREET (south side)
Nos. 35-39 (Consecutive)



Part of a planned terrace of small houses. Mid C19 by John Foulston. Stucco with stucco detail; dry slate and asbestos slate roofs behind stuccoed parapet, pediment to No.36 (left), moulded entablature to No.38; roof dormers; brick end stacks.

Double-depth plan, each house with one room at the front and entrance to one side of it. Two storeys plus attic; each house a two-window range except for No.36 which is a one-window range. Original twelve-pane hornless sashes replaced with horned copies or late C20 windows, the ground floor windows with round-arched heads and within recessed round-arched panels, except for No.36 with two-storey panel.

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.
