GV II

6 houses, part of a terrace of 20. 1823 to 1827. By Morris
Clarke and George Cox (RCHME). Rendered or brickwork, slate
roof.
PLAN: narrow frontage houses with double-depth plan, dogleg
staircase to the rear, and lower service wing.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys with attic. No.14, although built as part
of the main ensemble, is in unrendered Flemish bond brickwork,
and has a Victorian gabled dormer above a 3-storey canted bay
with plain sashes; at second-floor level is a blind window to
the left.
The arched doorway, to the left, has a plain fanlight above a
reeded transom and panelled door, with a Victorian gabled hood
on ornamental wood brackets; the alterations are very similar
to those made to No.10 (qv) in the same terrace.
Nos 15-19 are identical, with a flat-roofed dormer above two
12-pane sashes at second floor (one of these blind to No.15),
and a 2-storey flat bow with 8:12:8-pane sashes and an arched
doorway to the left, with plain fanlight above a reeded
transom and panelled door.
There are plat bands above ground and first floors, a small
moulded cornice, blocking course and parapet. Each house has a
deep brick stack to the right party wall.
The backs have a very deep mansard roof, with a raking dormer
and a second, lower dormer with glazing-bar sash to No.15;
there are 12-pane sashes in the rear wall, and 1 or 2-storey
gabled rear ranges. Between Nos 16 & 17 the ridge stack is
extended out and down, above roof level, in a form resembling
a large buttress.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
This is the least altered group in the terrace, which is the
last of the formal terraces at the N end of the Esplanade.
(RCHME: Dorset: South-East: London: 1970-: 354; Buildings of
England: Newman J & Pevsner N: Dorset: London: 1972-: 454).
