REGENT STREET (north east side)
Nos.40-46 (Even) Boyce's Buildings


Includes: Nos.7A AND 8 BOYCE'S AVENUE Clifton.

Pair of attached houses, now three. Dated 1763. Probably by Thomas Paty. For Thomas Boyce. Rendered over brick with limestone dressings, party wall and gable stacks and pantile mansard roof. Double-depth plan. Mid Georgian style. Each of three storeys, attic and basement; five-window range. Originally a composed terrace of three houses, the right one demolished. Each has middle three windows broken forward, and pedimented central section to the former central house with a dated monogram. First floor plat and sill bands, cornice and parapet. Gibbs surrounds to openings: doorways have tall keys to a pediment, three-pane overlights and six-panel doors; windows have three stepped keys, to 6/6-pane sashes. The first floor has taller 9/9-pane sashes either side of the middle one, with wrought-iron basket balconies.

Each house subdivided by coped party walls; No.44 has plate-glass sashes. Two rear semicircular-arched stair lights with interlacing glazing bars.

INTERIOR: No.40 includes a rebuilt rear central open-well stair; few surviving period details. Important as the first Clifton terrace. The end house was demolished in 1872.
