BRIGHTON

TQ3203NE ST GEORGE'S ROAD
577-1/49/793 (South side)
Nos.73-83 (Consecutive)

GV II

Terraced houses, now shops, offices and flats. Early C19.
Stucco originally scored to imitate ashlaring, a feature which
is still visible on Nos 73, 75, 77, 78, 81 and 82. Slate roofs
to Nos 73, 81 and 82; tile roofs to Nos 76, 77 and 78; the
rest obscured.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and dormers over basement. One window
each. Extensive remains of C19 shopfronts; these are nearly
complete on Nos 74, 80 and 81; to Nos 75-78 an entablature is
all that remains. Above the ground floor each unit has a
similar design, a description of which follows. The
first-floor window has an architrave with entablature and a
projecting sill. The entablature is gone from No.75. 8 x 8
sashes of original design survive in all but Nos 73-77 and 79.
The design of first-floor sashes to Nos 81 and 82 date to the
mid C19. The second-floor window has the same width as the
first-, but is plainer and shorter; it has a projecting sill.
It too has 8 x 8 sashes of original design which can be found
on all except Nos 78 and 83. A continuous entablature crowns
each elevation. Applied to each party wall is a pilaster
strip, with a wave moulding cross section; this pilaster strip
terminates in a bracket stop at the entablature. This pilaster
strip appears to have once been carried down through the
ground floor; there are remains of it on the party walls of
No.74. These remains suggest that the group may have been
built with shops on the ground floor. The ground floor of
No.83 is taken up by a flat-arched carriageway leading to the
mews behind. The stacks to the party walls were originally
moulded, traces of which appear to those on Nos 74 and 75.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
The entire terrace forms a group with St George's Church, St
George's Road (qv) and with the Sassoon Mausoleum, Paston
Place (qv).
