Pair of semi-detached houses. 1848. Developed, and probably
designed, by James Wagstaffe. Grey brick set in Flemish bond,
stucco, roof of slate. Three storeys over basement, the
principal front of each house two bays wide with a lower porch
wing set back at the side. Basement stuccoed, with banded
rustication. All windows flat-arched with stucco architraves
and reproduction sashes with margin lights, the ground floor
windows having shouldered architraves and bracketed sills,
window-guards on no 1; chamfered stucco quoins to ground floor
as far up as a broad band of brick running over lintels and
surmounted by a stucco cornice; bracketed eaves cornice. An
attic window to the inner bay of each house, forming a pair
flanked by pilaster strips with a blank bay between and
covered by a stucco cornice and blocking course which breaks
forward over the strips. Steps up to porch, the entrance
flat-arched in a plain stucco architrave; panelled door and
overlight. The porches to nos 1 and 2 are two storeys high
with stucco cornice, the upper window of no 2 alone having an
architrave. The main roofs hipped with stacks on party walls.
