PLAN: double-depth plan plus rear service wings.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys plus attic and basement to No.19; overall 10-window range: 2-window range of half pair on the left and 2 pairs, each pair with a symmetrical 4-window front with centre broken forward. Surviving stucco detail includes: channelled rustication to ground floor of No.15, recessed segmental-arched panels to ground floor and sill strings to all. Original 16-pane hornless sashes to basement of No.19, otherwise C20 horned sashes and C20 doors. Original pilastered porch with segmental-arched pediment and moulded entablature with Greek key pattern to Nos 18 and 19, pediment and return mouldings to an otherwise C20 porch to Nos 16 and 17.
INTERIOR: not inspected but may retain original features of interest. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: in front of No.19 are forecourt walls and wrought-iron railings with arrow-head finials and stanchions with flaming-urn finials. Although damaged during the Blitz, this street is still a good example of early C19 terraced house design and part of an important planned group on the Hoe.
