Listing Text


671-1/12/282 (South side)
01/06/49 Nos.3-17 (Odd)
and railings
(Formerly Listed as:
(South side)
Nos.1-25 (Odd))


Terrace of 8 houses, now offices. Late 1840s, early 1850s and
early 1880s. Calciferous sandstone ashlar on moulded plinth
with string course, cornice and dwarf solid parapet. Graduated
slate roof, one house with dormer; shared ridge brick chimney
2 storeys, 3 bays each, except No.17 which has 4th bay over
carriage arch. Right and left paired doorways, up steps, have
panelled doors and overlights in prostyle Ionic porches. Sash
windows, some with glazing bars in plain stone reveals over
recessed aprons. Some houses have cellar windows and cast-iron
railed voids but others appear not to have had cellars. No.17
has left segmental carriage arch with railed gates.
INTERIORS not inspected.
This terrace and the one opposite have been carefully matched
with the earlier individual houses No.1 and No.2, so that they
appear of one build. Nos 1 and 2 are the only houses in the
street listed in the 1847 (Mannix and Whellan) Directory, but
by the 1851 Census the street ended at No.7. The 1873
Directory (Kelly's) still shows the street ending at No.7, but
in the 1880 Directory (Arthur's) No.9 had been built. Nos
11-17 appear for the first time in the 1884 Directory (Barnes
Moss). J Cornforth, Country Life (1978), illustrates and
refers to this as "the best late-classical street" in the
city, but he queries the date of construction, hence the above
Nos 13, 15 & 17 were listed on 13.11.72.
(Country Life: 11 May 1978: P.1331/2).
