SX4854 RADNOR PLACE, Plymouth
740-1/58/406 Nos.1-8 (Consecutive)

II

Planned terrace of houses. Mid C19. Incised stucco with stucco
detail; dry slate roofs to Nos 1-4, otherwise asbestos slate
roofs behind parapets with turned balustrades over moulded
entablature; rendered end stacks. Double-depth plan
mirror-image pairs, each pair with paired central entrance
hall and each house with 1 front reception room.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys over basement; each pair of houses a
symmetrical 4-window front. The end bays have bowed tripartite
windows with blind sidelights, the ground floor windows where
original within channelled rustication. The central bays have
1st-floor windows with moulded hoods on consoles over
open-fronted porches with moulded entablature and parapets
with turned balustrades. Nos 1 and 2 have horned sashes with
glazing bars, those to the end bays with bowed sashes. Other
houses have later horned sashes, 2 sashes to No.3 with glazing
bars, otherwise Nos 3 and 4 have C20 windows. Panelled doors
to Nos 1 and 2 and 6-8.
INTERIOR: not inspected, except to note panelled window
shutters to ground and 1st-floor rooms, but likely to be of
interest.
The sequence of full-height bowed bays lends a very robust air
to this distinctive mid C19 terrace design in the Classical
tradition.
