Listing Text

The following building shal be added:
TQ 2677 NE (west side)
Nos. 107, 109 and 111

Terrace of three houses. 1914-5 by F E Williams of the firm
Cox and Williams. Narrow hand-made bricks with exceptionally
tall brick stacks, slate roofs. No.109 handed to share common
steps with No. 111, otherwise all have a long, narrow two-bay
plan with a single room to the front, a deep bay to the rear,
and a central stair and hall lit by an internal courtyard.
This is a plan characteristic of Cox and Williams's work.

3 storeys, attic and basement. A single composition, the
central No.109 steps forward under a rendered pediment set
with an Adamnesque medallion and swag. The whole composition
is held together by a very deep eaves cornice. All windows are
lead lattice casements, save altered dormer to No. 109. Those
to the first floor are a tripartite composition with central
round-arched French windows, inspired by Norman Shaw, leading
on to a wooden balcony featuring a turned baluster balustrade
in unpainted timber. Ground floor windows have central
projecting 3-light oriels. Nos. 107 and 109 have original
6-panel doors, square leaded top-lights and door furniture,
all have panelled door surrounds and iron area railings.
No.109 is denoted by a massive projecting sign in the form of
a swan.

No. 107 has internal fanlight to vestibule. The central
hallway has an elaborate turned bluster closed-string stair
with box room under lit by an oval leaded light. All the rooms
have exaggeratedly concave moulded cornices. Interiors to Nos.
109 & 111 not inspected but said to be the same in style and
similarly complete.

Recommended as an important example of the work of these
interesting and little-known architects, whose distinctive
style is reserved for a select group of prestigious town
houses. The whole forms an impressive and complete group, in
its own right and in the context of its surroundings.
