Terrace of 6 houses. Late C18. Probably built by Joseph
Kirkman and Alexander Hendy as part of the development of Lord
Camden's Estate. Patched yellow stock brick; Nos 75 & 85 with
channelled stucco ground floors, all with continuous stucco
1st floor sill band. Slated mansard roofs, each with a dormer
and slab chimney-stacks on the party walls. 3 storeys, attics
and basements. Round-arched entrances, with rusticated
keystones except No.89, fanlights and later doors; entrances
to end houses on returns. Gauged brick flat arches to recessed
sashes. Parapets.
INTERIORS: not inspected but noted to retain some original
features.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached cast-iron railings to areas.
HISTORICAL NOTE: Kirkman and Hendy were amongst the first
speculative builders to take leases following Lord Camden's
Estate Act passed in 1788 for the building of 1,400 houses for
"industrious artisans" on the southern part of his Kentish
Town Estate. Their first take was in June 1790 and the leases
for the houses on Royal College Street all ran from Michaelmas
1790. Nos 75-85 appear on the Stockdale Map of 1797.
