BRIGHTON

TQ3203NE CHESHAM PLACE 577-1/49/139 (West side) 24/11/94 Nos.7-11 (Consecutive) and attached walls, piers and railings

GV II

Terraced houses, now flats. Mid C19. Stucco scored to imitate ashlaring. Slate roofs to all but No.10 which is of tile. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and attic over basement. 3 windows each. There are straight joins between Nos 7-8 and 9-10. By breaking joins between the pairs and No.11, which stands on the corner above the rest, the terrace steps down from north to south. All are built to a common design. The elevation is treated as a full-height and nearly full-width canted bay. On the party walls are full-height quoin strips which are interrupted by the mouldings described below. A flat-arched entrance with side- overlight is reached up a short flight of steps. This entrance is set to the party wall and recessed into the bay. It is within a prostyle porch consisting of Tuscan columns and entablature. The left-hand column is attached to the front of the bay. The banded, chamfered rustication which covers the ground floor is found on the wall inside the porch. It appears that No.11 was built without a porch. The 2 flat-arched windows to the side of each entrance have quadrant corners, sills projecting on a pair of console brackets, and a quoined lintel. The entrance-porch entablature continues across the entire facade and serves as the front fascia for a first-floor balcony which is enclosed by cast-iron railings in a scroll and trellis pattern suggesting a date of c1860 or possibly even later. The full-height, first-floor windows have stilted, segmental heads with architraves, the latter being tied together by a springing band. The second-floor windows are flat arched, each with a sill projecting onto a pair of console brackets; the centre, second-floor window has quadrant corners and is set in an aedicule of very shallow projection. The cornice of this aedicule continues across the facade and marks the beginning of the attic storey, which has round-arched windows with architraves and springing band. A continuous entablature with bracketed dentil cornice crowns the elevation. The return of No.11 originally had only a single, blocked window range which reproduced the main features of the front's centre-window range. There was an entrance through a shallow aedicule set in a ground floor of banded, chamfered rustication. This entrance is now filled with a window. To the left of this range, is a range of C20 windows placed with little concern for the original design. INTERIOR: not inspected. There are walls, piers and railings to the entrances and areas. Although built in the Victorian period, the design of these houses (like those across the street, Nos 12-21 (qv) is in keeping with the Regency character of Kemp Town. It would be wrong, however, to go so far as to label them "Regency Revival". Nos 7-11 form a group with Nos 1-6 and Nos 12-21 Chesham Place (qv).
