SOUTHWARK

TQ3476 HIGHSHORE ROAD
636-1/12/430 (South side)
Nos.21 AND 23

II

2 semi-detached houses. Early C19. Stucco faced, traces of
scoring in imitation of ashlaring. Hipped roof over the pair,
that to No.21 of concrete tile and to No.23 of slate.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys over basement. 2 windows each. All
openings are flat-arched except for basement windows which are
segmental-arched. Steps up to entrances at far corners of the
pair, each set under a Tuscan prostyle porch with responds;
the entrance range is set well back from the centre ranges,
where the windows are set in shallow rectangular full-height
bays.
Ground-floor windows with architraves and bracketed pediments,
both treated in a very harsh and primitive fashion which is
worthy of note. Similarly brusque detailing in a Greek Revival
mode to the architraves on the 1st-floor windows. Windows
above the entrances have flush eared architraves. Full-height
recess on party wall. Stacks to party wall. Boxed eaves with
paired brackets and simplified triglyph frieze. Sashes of
original design, 6x6 to ground-floor and 3x3 to 1st-floor
windows of centre ranges.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
