Listing Text


671-1/5/114 (West side)
13/11/72 Nos.1-9 (Consecutive)
(Formerly Listed as:
Nos 1-9 (consec) Devonshire Terrace)


Terrace of 9 houses. Dated on keystone 1832, with 1840s
additional houses and later alterations. Flemish bond
brickwork with light headers; on chamfered stone plinth (all
dressings of calciferous sandstone) with V-jointed quoins on
end houses, sill bands and eaves cornice. Graduated greenslate
roofs, hipped on end houses; 2 houses with roof dormers;
original shared ridge brick chimney stacks.
2 storeys; 2 and 3 bays each; built in groups of 2 and 3
houses, each group with a different roof line, stepped up the
slope; No.1 has a 3-bay return facing onto Cavendish Terrace
and No.9 a 3-bay return on St Georges Crescent. Left, right
and sometimes central, panelled doors and overlight in
prostyle Ionic porches, up steps. Sash windows, some with
glazing bars, in stone architraves, many ground floor windows
have been replaced with later C19 canted or square bay
windows. Through segmental stone carriage arches between many
of the houses, some are open but others have plank and
panelled double doors. No.1 has a tetrastyle porch on its
INTERIORS: some panelled shutters at ground- and first-floor
windows; panelled doors. Principal rooms have moulded plaster
ceiling cornices and central roundels; some have marble
HISTORY: Built on land belonging to the Duke of Devonshire
hence the terrace name. There is mention of Isaac Bond on
22-23 July 1832 of Devonshire Terrace (Cumbria County Record
Office, DX/556). The 1839 Tithe map shows 5 houses only, Nos 1
and 2 then being one house; Studholme's map of 1842 shows 6
houses; by 1847 there were 7 families living in the terrace
and in 1850/1 the numbering seems to have ended at No.7.
However, the Carlisle Patriot (1857) has a sale notice for
No.9, so the terrace was certainly complete by that date, with
its present numbering.
(Carlisle Patriot: 13 November 1857).
