At the east and west end gate piers in stucco, ball finials to those at the east end. Although the arrangement of each unit follows no type, the whole is unified by scale, 2 storeys, and repetition of similar elements and materials. The following description, therefore, will detail individual elevations rather than define a common type.

No.11 has a 3-window range; flat-arched entrance with a garage to either side; in first-window range above a segmental-arched window next to a blocked loading bay door. No.12 has a 3-window range; flat-arched entrance with overlight, to either side of which is a tripartite window set under a segmental arch, the whole of late C20 date; camber-arched windows to second- and third-window range; garage to right party wall.
