Pair of town houses, now offices and surgeries. c.1830-40,

and slate roof. Rectangular double-depth plan, each house
double-fronted, with added back extensions. Three storeys over

Each has a central doorway protected by a porch with fluted
Doric columns (and unfluted pilasters), with deep entablature,
moulded cornice and blocking course, and a panelled door with
plain overlight, each porch mounted on a short flight of steps
forming a bridge over the basement area (that to No.89 now
filled up). The windows, diminishing in the height and all
with raised sills and wedge lintels, are sashed without
glazing bars, except one at 1st floor and 2 at 2nd floor of
No.88. Lateral chimney stack at the junction, altered chimney
at right-hand gable. Left gable wall rebuilt in modern brick.
Rear: various 12- and 6-pane sashed windows at No.89; added

at No.89). INTERIOR: moulded architraves to doors, moulded
plaster cornices in both entrance halls, very elaborate vine
friezes in principal ground floor rooms, doglegged staircases
(both now with boarded balusters).
