CAMDEN

28/10/94 Nos.108-132 (Even)
and attached railings

GV II

Terrace of 13 houses, 4 with shops. Mid-1820s. Stock brick and
stucco, slate roofs.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and basements, No.112 with added mansard
storey not of special interest. Each house is 2 windows wide
except for No.108 (one window wide), with doors to right
reached up steps over basement areas; the end houses with
entrances on side returns. Stuccoed ground floors and
basements with banded rustication treated as keystones over
openings. A hierarchy of 12- and 8-light glazing bar sashes to
the upper windows. The ground floors have always had a variety
of fenestration, with margin lights to No.120 and round-arched
windows to the remainder, Nos 114 and 130 with 12 lights and
central round-arched glazing bars. Nos 116 and 122 with modern
casement windows of no interest. Original doors except to
No.122. All doorcases with engaged, fluted pilasters and
semicircular toplights, No.130 with decorative fanlight, save
Nos 108, 110, 112 and 132 which have shopfronts. Those to Nos
108 and 132 of particular interest as early C19 examples, with
corner entrances. No.108 has moulded eaves cornice, deep
frieze, engaged unmoulded pilasters and small panels under 6-
and 4-light windows, these with thin mullions and central
transoms. That to No.132 has simpler cornice and sides, but 12
and 10 smaller panes between slender glazing bars, and margin
lights to top; square top-light over modern door at corner.
Shopfront to No.114 with pleasant early C20 margin-light
decoration to top, and contemporary door.
INTERIORS not inspected but many are noted to retain original
cornices and shutterboxes as well as staircases.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: spearhead railings to basement areas and
entrance steps in the properties without shopfronts.
This terrace forms a strong and cohesive piece of townscape
seen across College Green.
