BRIGHTON

TQ3203NE CHESHAM PLACE
577-1/49/139 (West side)
24/11/94 Nos.7-11 (Consecutive)
and attached walls, piers and
railings

GV II

Terraced houses, now flats. Mid C19. Stucco scored to imitate
ashlaring. Slate roofs to all but No.10 which is of tile.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and attic over basement. 3 windows each.
There are straight joins between Nos 7-8 and 9-10. By breaking
joins between the pairs and No.11, which stands on the corner
above the rest, the terrace steps down from north to south.
All are built to a common design. The elevation is treated as
a full-height and nearly full-width canted bay. On the party
walls are full-height quoin strips which are interrupted by
the mouldings described below. A flat-arched entrance with
side- overlight is reached up a short flight of steps. This
entrance is set to the party wall and recessed into the bay.
It is within a prostyle porch consisting of Tuscan columns and
entablature. The left-hand column is attached to the front of
the bay. The banded, chamfered rustication which covers the
ground floor is found on the wall inside the porch. It appears
that No.11 was built without a porch. The 2 flat-arched
windows to the side of each entrance have quadrant corners,
sills projecting on a pair of console brackets, and a quoined
lintel. The entrance-porch entablature continues across the
entire facade and serves as the front fascia for a first-floor
balcony which is enclosed by cast-iron railings in a scroll
and trellis pattern suggesting a date of c1860 or possibly
even later. The full-height, first-floor windows have stilted,
segmental heads with architraves, the latter being tied
together by a springing band. The second-floor windows are
flat arched, each with a sill projecting onto a pair of
console brackets; the centre, second-floor window has quadrant
corners and is set in an aedicule of very shallow projection.
The cornice of this aedicule continues across the facade and
marks the beginning of the attic storey, which has
round-arched windows with architraves and springing band. A
continuous entablature with bracketed dentil cornice crowns
the elevation. The return of No.11 originally had only a
single, blocked window range which reproduced the main
features of the front's centre-window range. There was an
entrance through a shallow aedicule set in a ground floor of
banded, chamfered rustication. This entrance is now filled
with a window. To the left of this range, is a range of C20
windows placed with little concern for the original design.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
There are walls, piers and railings to the entrances and
areas.
Although built in the Victorian period, the design of these
houses (like those across the street, Nos 12-21 (qv) is in
keeping with the Regency character of Kemp Town. It would be
wrong, however, to go so far as to label them "Regency
Revival".
Nos 7-11 form a group with Nos 1-6 and Nos 12-21 Chesham Place
(qv).
