under a pediment, but there are now seven houses to the left
of the centrepiece and three to the right. All openings
flat-arched with heads of gauged brick. Entrance has engaged
Greek Doric columns, cornice, overlight with original glazing
and panelled door of original design; first-floor windows have
piano nobile proporitons and balconies with cast-iron
railings; the centrepiece is four storeys high, with four
giant Ionic pilasters to the upper floors supporting
entablature and pediment; windows are 6/6 sashes with 3/3
sashes to second floor to centre; the other houses have dentil
brickwork to the parapet; stacks to party walls.
