Listing Text


635-1/54/138 (South East side)
29/09/72 Nos.7-12 (Consecutive)
(Formerly Listed as:
Nos.1-12 (Consecutive))


Terraced houses. c.1825. Developed by Richard Laycock.
Yellow-brown brick set in Flemish bond, stucco, roof obscured
by parapet. Two storeys over basement, two windows each. The
houses form a symmetrical group of three pairs with linked
porches, and the window bays of the central pair, nos 9 and
10, break forward. Segmental-arched window to basement. Steps
up to stuccoed flat-arched porch with antae and entablature,
leading to flat-arched entrance with simple doorcase, cornice
and overlight with decorative glazing, panelled doors of
original design. The windows on both floors in the window bay
are set in an elliptical-arched recessed panel with gauged
brick head; that to the ground floor is flat-arched with
gauged brick head and balcony with iron railings, that to no
12 probably a later insertion. First-floor windows flat-arched
with gauged brick heads and 6/6 sashes to entrance bay, 8/8 to
window bay. Stucco band at cornice level and parapet, the
parapet broken centrally above porches by a small pedimented
block. No 12 appears to have been much rebuilt.
