Oakfield Avenue is part of a complete classical terrace of continuous design stretching the length of the street and dating from the mid 19th century. The terrace is well designed and the continuous unified façade makes a good contribution to the streetscape of the surrounding area which is characterised by villa developments. The interiors were characterised by high quality materials and in particular the use of elaborate cornicing and plasterwork.
Formerly listed as '57-69 (Odd Nos) Oakfield Avenue'. Originally known as 'Wilson Street'. Part of Oakfield Avenue (odd numbers) B Group.
