ST5675 DOWNLEAZE, Sneyd Park
901-1/31/1784 (East side)
Nos.18 AND 19

GV II

Pair of attached houses. c1890. Possibly by H Dare Bryan.
Snecked Lias rubble with limestone dressings, brick gable and
ridge stacks, slate and tile hip roof. Double-depth plan.
Eclectic late Victorian style, with Queen Anne influence.
Entrances in the side walls have elliptical arches to battened
2-leaf doors, semicircular-arched overlights, and fluted
consoles to cornices; beside them are oval, keyed stair
lights.
The front outer gables project slightly, and have ground-floor
canted bays with Ipswich windows and patterned glazing bars
above the transom, and balustraded balconies; first-floor
paired elliptical-arched windows with keys, and second-floor
3-light sashes with semicircular-arched heads, a round,
central basin in front and a panel above with swag, pediment
and a brick and stone relieving arch; top of gable is striped
brick and stone, with an oval light and terracotta decoration.
The ground-floor inner windows have paired casements below
pulvinated frieze and pediment, with stained glass above the
transom; above are 2 elliptical-arched sashes, and paired
second-floor flat-headed plate-glass sashes. The ground floors
are divided by a buttress beneath a pilaster to the coped
party wall.
INTERIOR: side entrance halls and open-well stairs with turned
balusters and square newels with ball finials.
The same doors are used on Bryan's other Downleaze houses, for
which this may have been a precursor. Included for group
value.
