PLYMOUTH

SX4856SE SEYMOUR ROAD, Mannamead
740-1/38/330 (North side)
Clareham Court and Hyperion

GV II

Pair of villas. Mid-late C19. Stucco with stucco detail;
low-pitched slate roofs with modillion cornices; tall stuccoed
stacks with modillion cornices and pediments. Double-depth
plan with entrance halls behind front rooms at left and right.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; symmetrical 3:4:3-window road front.
Original hornless sashes, those to canted bays with margin
panes. There are triple windows with moulded architraves,
consoles and central pediments at left and right above canted
pilastered bays with moulded entablature, the cornices linked
to moulded string and surmounted by balconies with turned
balustrades. Windows to other bays have moulded architraves,
those to 1st floor with round flanking triangular pediments on
consoles and the ground-floor windows have moulded hoods on
consoles. The other elevations are also richly detailed: the
entrance porches have rusticated doorways, moulded entablature
and turned or panelled balustrades to balconies above. There
are paired round-arched lights above the porches and similar
windows over turned balustrades near the front and over
rusticated round-arched niches. Windows to projecting wings
rear of porches are like those to central bays at the front.
Hyperion (left) has glazed lean-to conservatory in front of
the porch.
INTERIOR: not inspected but likely to reflect the high quality
of the exterior.
A complete and virtually unaltered pair of villas, one of a
good group in Mannamead which was developed after 1851.
