GV II*

Terrace of 13 houses. 1788. Probably by John Eveleigh. Altered
1922. Limestone ashlar, party wall stacks and slate mansard
roofs. Double-depth plan. Late Georgian style. Each of 3
storeys, attic and basement; 3-window range.
A composed terrace originally with end and middle houses set
forward with pediments, first-floor sill bands, and pediments
over the central first-floor windows; articulated by pilaster
strips to a cornice and parapet, and rusticated ground floor
to a plat band. Outer doorways have panelled pilasters,
entablature blocks with foliate medallions, open pediments,
semicircular-arched doorways, Nos 32-37 with stellate
fanlights, plate glass the rest, and 6-panel doors with upper
4 raised. Incised voussoirs and tall key to the ground-floor
windows, with 6/6-pane and 3/6-pane second-floor sashes; 2
dormers. No.32 has had the pediment removed.
The left-hand end pair rebuilt as one in 1922 to form a bank:
ground-floor frieze of festoons and cornice carried round to
the return, with a bowed porch with 2 pairs of Temple of the
Winds capitals and a 2-leaf door, and in the return an arcade
of 3 large semicircular-arched windows each with attached
columns, moulded archivolts and volute keys, plinths and
aprons with volutes to Greek key cills, a wide panel above,
and 4 plain second-floor windows separated by a square panel
with oak leaf wreath and monogram NUP 1922. Flaming urns to
the corners.
INTERIOR not inspected, but see Nos 1-13 The Mall (qv).
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached cast-iron front basement area
railings and gates with bud heads. Forms an important group
with the matching Nos 1-13 West Mall opposite (qv) and, with
Nos 14-34 West Mall and 1-35 Caledonia Place (qv), a very
good, and for Clifton uniquely formal, square.
