This pair, originally attached houses, are now offices and flats, date to around 1840 with mid-C20 and early C21 alterations.

MATERIALS: they are rendered with stone dressings, pantile and single-Roman tile roofs with end rendered stacks.

PLAN: double-depth plan.

EXTERIOR: Italianate in style, this symmetrical pair is of three storeys, and each comprises a two-window range. The principal elevation is composed of plinth, chamfered quoins, modillion cornice and blocking course to a blind parapet. The ground floor has been altered several times. Each has a pair of two-pane sash windows with pilasters connected by a double-arched relief above; this arrangement was installed in the late C20/early C21. Each also has a doorcase to the central party wall with moulded round-headed architrave, brackets and keystone. Both have a modern two-panel door with plain fanlight. The first floor to each has a canted four-light oriel window above the ground floor windows with a ribbed cornice, moulded sill and round-headed plate-glass sashes, and round-headed opening above the doorcases with imposts, keystone and plate-glass sash. The upper floor has plate-glass sashes in plain round-headed surrounds.

INTERIOR: nothing survives on the ground floor of No 4 either of the original room layout or any architectural features of note. No 2 and the upper floors of both houses have not been inspected but approval was granted in 2015 for alterations to the layout to convert to flats.

The building is an example of the local Italianate idiom derived from Bath. It has group value with adjacent Milward House, No 1 Bristol Road (listed at Grade II).
