II

Terraced houses. Early C19. Painted mathematical tiles with straight joins, stucco to some bays. Roofs of slate. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and dormer over basement. One window each. The design of each unit adheres to a common type, a description of which follows. Steps up to flat-arched entrance with overlight framed by Tuscan pilasters from which spring scroll brackets to support a boxed cornice porch. To left rises a full-height segmental bay; all windows are flat arched and all bay windows are tripartite; sashes of original design: 6 x 6 to centre windows and 2 x 2 to sides. Single window to basement under bay. On ground floor of No.20 the original segmental bay replaced by canted bay; above this the spandrels of bay are faced with stucco; sashes of second floor are late C19 or early C20. No.23 appears to have been altered at least twice later in the C19: entrance flanked by fluted Tuscan pilasters, its cornice porch plainer than the rest; to left of entrance a very broad segmental bay with fluted Tuscan pilasters at the join with the front wall; ground-floor bay, which may date to late C19 or early C20; the first-floor segmental bay is narrower than that to the ground floor and not on the same axis; the first-floor bay has floor-to-ceiling windows with sashes of original design, 6 x 6 to centre and 4 x 4 to sides; balcony to bay only. The segmental bay to the second floor is narrower still, but on the same, central axis as that to the first floor and identical to segmental bays elsewhere in the terrace; parapet and coping raises this unit above the rest in the terrace. Eaves to Nos 20, 21 and 22, each with a single, flat-arched C20 dormer to the roof. Stacks to party walls. INTERIOR: not inspected. Railings to areas and stairs of all but No.23, the area of which has been taken up with the broad ground-floor bay.
