Terrace. Early C19. Brown brick in Flemish bond, channelled stucco ground
floor, stucco cornice and further cornice to parapet. 4 storeys. Basement.
10-bay breakforward flanked by 8-bay wings and further 6-bay slight breakforward
to left end (presumably originally formed a symmetrical composition, the similar
6-bay breakforward to the right having been replaced by later building).
Pilastered entrances. Sash windows, some with glazing bars. 1st floor: iron
balcony. Casements or sashes, some with glazing bars. The windows to the
central breakforward have flat gauged brick arches and are set in
segmental-arched recesses with stucco imposts. Flat gauged brick arches to left
8-bay wing, otherwise stucco architraves. Above, mainly sashes with glazing
bars. Cornice at 3rd floor level. Iron railings to basement. Known originally
as Grand Junction Road, Sussex Gardens formed an important feature of the
original layout of Bayswater. No 32 was occupied in 1830-6 by B O'Meara
(Napoleon's surgeon on St Helena).
