(Formerly Listed as:
Terrace of 9 houses, part of group of 20. 1823-1827. By Morris
Clarke and George Cox (RCHME). Brick (No.3), rendered (Nos
4-11), slate roof.
PLAN: a series of narrow frontage houses in double-depth, with
dogleg stair at the back, and small service wing extensions,
in various depths, following the line of the Esplanade
opposite Waterloo Place (qv).
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and attic, 1 or 2 windows; there are
varied dormers, a single Victorian gabled to Nos 3, 5 & 10,
with a canted version to No.7, and early flat-roofed sash or
casement to the remainder, but 2 with 9-pane sash to No.6. The
original fronts have 3-storey flat bows with 8:12:8-pane
sashes with dentil cornices.
The front detail to No.10 was altered in the late C19, (see
also No.14 (qv)) and variations are: No.5, with a 2-storey
canted oriel above a full-width pilaster shop front; Nos 6 &
11 with two 12-pane sashes at second floor, above a 2-storey
bow, and No.10 with canted Victorian plain sash full-height
bay. Nos 8-11 have one 12-pane sash at second-floor level, in
addition to the bow.
Arched doorways, to the left, have fanlights above fluted
transoms, that to No.3 with Y-tracery bars, and No.10 has a
Victorian gabled porch on decorative wood supports.
A slight plinth, a plat band above ground and first floors,
and a thin moulded cornice to blocking course and parapet.
Each property has a deep brick stack, usually with 6 clay
pots, to the right party wall.
The backs are in brickwork, with paired brick dentils to the
cornice, with a single dormer behind a parapet (except No.3),
12-pane sashes, and narrow single-storey gabled wings taken
out to the road at the rear. Nos 3 & 4 have a large C20
dormer, and full-height rear range, and Nos 5 & 6 have
3-storey gabled rear ranges.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
This is part of the last of the formal terraces, at the N end
of the Esplanade, beginning with the Round House (qv), and has
been altered only slightly since completion.
