2. This is the best series of buildings in Eastbourne. It was built between 1851 and 1855 but in character appears 30 years earlier. It is a terrace of 19 houses, of which the Burlington Hotel now comprises 13 (but originally only the central portion of the terrace). 4 storeys and basement with area, plus an extra storey to Nos 13 to 23. It is not quite symmetrical, as originally this extra storey existed on 2 more houses on the West of the central portion (Nos 17 and 18) than on the East. 3 windows to each house, or 57 windows in all. Stuccoed, ground floor rusticated. Round-headed windows on ground floor. Iron balconies on lst floor, that on No 6 replaced by a Victorian substitute. Cornice above the 2nd floor, another with parapet above the top floor; the 2 houses at each end (Nos 5 and 6 and 22 and 23) and the 3 central houses (Nos 13 to 15) of the terrace project slightly and have Ionic columns from the lst to 2nd floors supporting the lower cornice with above this a set of plain pilasters extending to the upper cornice. The centre 5 windows (No l4 and 1 window on each side) have a pediment over them in the place of the parapet above the upper cornice. No 14 has also a porch with Doric columns and a balustrade above its entablature. No glazing bars. Nos 19 to 23 have had an extra storey added to them in modern times making them the same height as the central houses, with a mansarded roof and large modern windows. In No 7 the whole of the ground floor part of the facade has been cut away to make a recessed hotel entrance to the Claremont Hotel. The 2 adjoining houses of this hotel on the East (Nos 8 and 9) have suffered war damage. The facades are intact.
