941-1/13/224 (East side)
Nos.2-8 (Consecutive)


Terrace of 7 small town houses, No.4 now office. c.1850-60,
altered. Red brick in Flemish bond, with sandstone dressings
and slate roofs. Double-depth plan, each house single-fronted,
built in halls-adjoining pairs, with coupled back extensions.
Two storeys over cellars, each with 2 windows at 1st floor
except Nos 4 and 8 which have 3, the pairs successively
stepped up the slope and linked visually by a 1st-floor
sill-band ramped up from pair to pair, and a plain frieze and
moulded gutter cornice likewise ramped. The doorway to No.8 is
at the right-hand end but all the others are coupled, and all
have moulded architraves with emphatic dentilled cornices on
consoles, and panelled doors with overlights; in addition, nos
4 and 8 each have a through-lobby doorway to the left, with
deep lintel and moulded cornice. Each house has a sunk cellar
window protected by a grating, one window at ground floor and
2 above (except Nos 4 and 8 which both have an additional
window over the lobby door), all these windows with raised
sills and wedge lintels; Nos 4 and 5 have sashed windows
(mostly 12-paned) but all the others have altered glazing.
Large multi-flue chimney stacks at the junctions between the
pairs. INTERIOR: stick-baluster staircases; moulded plaster
cornices; 2-room cellars. The terrace forms a group with the
Harris Institute attached at the south end.
