Pair of attached houses. c1845. Limestone ashlar with party
wall stacks, roof not visible. Double-depth plan. Neoclassical
style. Each of 2 storeys and basement; 2-window range.
A fine composition with an Ionic tetrastyle-in-antis temple
front, with a full entablature and dentil pediment with scroll
and wreath in the tympanum. Set back behind is the house with
outer, lower 1-window entrance blocks with moulded parapet and
scrolled brackets to the sides of the centre, and open
entrances with subsidiary Ionic distyle-in-antis porches, to
recessed doorways with overlights and 2-panel doors.
Architraves to tripartite central ground-floor 4/4-pane
flanked by 2/2-pane sashes, the rest 6/6-pane sashes with
moulded cills. Side elevations have semicircular-arched stair
INTERIOR: No.13 has an entrance hall divided by an elliptical
arch with Ionic capitals, a right-hand stair flight with
turned balusters and curtail, central lateral first-floor
attic stair, ground-floor rooms connected by folding panelled
doors, a good marble fireplace with Ionic capitals, heavy
cornices, bracketed in the stair hall, panelled shutters and
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached spear-headed front garden
railings, gates and 2 pairs of rusticated piers with pediment
caps. A particularly well resolved solution to the problem of
applying a Classical temple front to 2 houses. Built by the
developer of the whole street, the last house for himself. The
wreath was a favoured motif of RS Pope.
