Terrace of 6 houses. 1835. Perhaps by Henry Goodridge. Render
with limestone dressings, party wall stacks, roof not visible.
Double-depth plan. Neoclassical style.
Each of 3 storeys, basement and attic; 1-window range. A plain
terrace with moulded coping, has 3-storey windowless blocks
projecting across the party wall of each pair, with tetrastyle
pilastrades with carved capitals to the upper floors on
shallow corbels, to a moulded frieze and pediment, and carved
lion heads to the returns; 18/19 has a third storey added in
place of the pediment. Openings have splayed surrounds: 2
doorways to the middle, blocked to No.18, single-window range
to the sides of the middle, to 6/6-pane sashes. Nos 18 & 19
have fourth storey added.
INTERIOR: entrance lobby, to a central passage and top-lit
open dogleg stair with turned balusters; modillion cornices,
and 6-panel doors. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached cast-iron
spear-headed front basement area railings. A striking and
unusual design. Goodridge was the architect of the original
Pro-Cathedral (qv) to the rear of Meridian Place.
