Listing Text


873-1/20/408 (South side)
14/06/74 Nos.25, 26 AND 27


3 houses at end of terrace. Early to mid C19. Flemish bond
brickwork, slate roofs, with mansard slopes to rear only.
3 storeys, each 1 window; 12-pane sashes in reveals above bold
canted sash oriels in 2:6:2-panes (no horizontal bars) and
12-pane to the ground floor. To the left in each a flush stone
flat elliptical arch above shallow fanlight, with the original
6-panel door remaining to No.25 only. A small plinth, a mid
plat band, and second-floor sill band, all in stone, and ridge
stack to each right party wall.
The rear, with concrete tile roof to No.26, is in 2 storeys
plus dormer, a 4-pane sash in No.27, but large C20 steel
casements to the other two. At first floor No.25 has a 4-pane,
No.26 has two C20 casements, and No.27 a 12-pane sash.
Although these are consistent in detail with Nos 14-24 (qv),
they were probably built as the first three in the terrace,
just before the others. They help to complete a street which
continues the Melcombe Regis terrace tradition, and, with the
opposite side of the street and the parallel Bath Street, are
an interesting survival of early C19 speculative development.
INTERIOR not inspected.
