Berrydene

GV II

Terrace of 7 houses. Dated 1892. Cream-coloured brick with
relieving arches and horizontal bands of red brick; some door
and window heads of stone. Slated roofs with pierced red
ridge-tiles; verandahs covered with slates, corrugated iron or
concrete tiles. Red brick chimneys with caps formed by
projecting brick courses.
2 storeys with garrets. Built to an overall design, the fronts
of the middle and end houses, each 3-window range, being
developed into tall gables above eaves-level. The intervening
houses are designed as mirrored pairs, each having a 3-light
window at the outer end and a single-light window in the
middle. In the ground storey the doorways have moulded pointed
arches. Some of the doors have been altered, but Nos 10, 11 &
13 have 6-panelled outer doors; Nos 11, 12, 13 & 15 (and
possibly others) have inner doors with 2 sunk panels below and
a glazed panel above, the latter with patterned glazing bars;
coloured leaded glass at Nos 12 and 15.
The 3 gabled houses have windows with pointed arches, the
garret having a Venetian-style 3-light window with pointed
relieving arch to the taller middle light. The central house
(No.13) has a stone plaque inscribed BERRYDENE over the
2nd-storey window, and the date 1892 cut into the arch of the
garret window. Gables have moulded barge-boards. The mirrored
pairs of houses differ in having 4-light bay windows in the
ground storey, canted on the side nearest the door; all but
No.14 have sashes with 2 small panes at the top of the upper
sash and 2 more at the bottom of the lower sash. In front of
the ground storey of each pair is a verandah carried on turned
wooden columns with ornate iron brackets to support the
head-beam. Upper-storey windows are flat-headed; panel of
patterned yellow tiles against the party walls, between the
single-light windows. Bracketed eaves cornice. Apart from the
bays already mentioned, the windows mostly have plain sashes
with horns; Nos 13 & 14 differ in having late C20 PVC windows
in original openings.
The houses are in the style of WC Oliver and are among the
best examples of their type on the fringe of the central
Conservation Area.
