4-window-range unaltered front including a tripartite stair
window (2nd from end window) with broken and open segmental
pediment on consoles to the central light. End windows are
over corners of porches, the other bays are regular with 2
windows to each floor; all horned sashes within moulded
architraves. Stucco detail includes: rusticated quoins,
moulded plinth and mid-floor strings; porch with channelled

columns on plinths; inner doorways with moulded and keyed
architraves; leaded glazed overlights and panelled doors with
fielded and bolection-moulded panels.

a full-height canted bay to its end bay surmounted by a
smaller-plan attic window with poygonal roof. No 8 has 3
regular inner bays; No 7 has 1 similar bay and a bowed
projection with tripartite windows, but with sash replaced
with plain glass to 1st-floor centre light over ground-floor
light altered to create doorway with overlight and pair of
glazed doors.
INTERIOR not inspected but likely to be as unaltered as the
exterior and to contain features which reflect its strong
external architectural detail.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: forecourt walls surmounted by
wrought-iron railings with arrow-head finials.
A virtually unaltered pair of villas in a good planned group.
