873-1/18/204 (South side)
Nos.1-5 (Consecutive)


Terrace of 5 houses, between parallel side streets. Mid C19.
Broadmayne brick in Flemish bond, painted stone dressings,
slate roofs. Built to a consistent design, but Nos 4 & 5 as a
handed pair, with straight joint to No.3, and slight
differences. A straight range with front parapet, hipped left
end and gabled right; each house has a 2-storey hipped rear
range (but 3-storey to No.2).
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, attic to Nos 4 & 5, all windows 4-pane
sashes; at second floor each has 2 sashes in moulded stone
architraves and with 2 brackets to the sill; Nos 4 & 5 also
have 1 small flat-roofed dormer. Ground and first floors have
a canted bay with cornice at each level, to a flat roof
immediately below a plat band, with a further band at
first-floor level.
To the left of each (right to No.5), on 2 or 3 stone steps, a
2-panel original door under plain fanlight, with arch on
responds and with a flush arch and keystone. Small plinth,
moulded cornice, blocking course and parapet, 4 deep brick
stacks with original clay pots. Each gable end is plain, and
the rear ranges have 4-pane sashes, with a small dormer to Nos
4 & 5.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
This terrace, quite unaltered externally, is an excellent
example of the continuing tradition of the earlier C19 in
Melcombe Regis, with overall proportions and detail little
changed, but the characteristic bow becoming a canted bay.
