Panelled doors with margin lights, some altered. First-floor cast-iron balconies, moulded brackets, French windows with alternating segmental and triangular architrave pediments; No. 14 has a bow window of 1920s. Upper-storey architraves, stringcourses and cornices. Twelve-pane sashes, some plate-glass replacement. Attic has six-light sashes, blind central bays on alternate houses (Nos 12, 16 and 20). Three-bay north return to No. 10, blind outer bays. Spearhead cast-iron area railings.
No. 22 was separately built in 1841. Three bays, one storey lower. Altered, with fully stuccoed first and second storeys. Included for group value.
