TQ3103NE MARINE PARADE 577-1/47/442 (North side) 15/10/87 No.58 and attached railings

II

Terraced house. Early C19, remodelled in mid to late C19; the ground floor dates to 1901, when the structure was extended to the rear and partly combined with No.14 Grafton Street (qv). Stucco and brown brick with stucco dressings. Roof of slate. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and attic over basement. One window-range. Stairs up to a flat-arched entrance with overlight, framed by Tuscan pilasters supporting a stilted, camber arch, topped by an entablature. The ground floor is of stucco rendered as rustication alternating between plain and vermiculated bands. The entrance is set into the right facet of a 3-storey canted bay which dominates the rest of the elevation, all bay windows tripartite and flat arched. To the left of the bay on the ground floor is an elliptical window. Thick, stucco brackets on the bay support a first-floor balcony with cast-iron railings. The first floor of the bay has Tuscan pilasters, responds and an entablature; the second floor of the bay has attached columns of the Composite order, responds and entablature. The lines of these entablatures are continued across the wall planes as storey bands, terminating in corner quoins. Surface of bay faced in stucco and the wall surfaces of the first, second and attic floors are of brown brick. Above the bay, in the attic storey, are 3 round-arched windows with architraves and keystones. Attic storey has an entablature and modillioned cornice topped by a blocking course. Stack to party walls. INTERIOR: at the rear of the block on the first floor, there is a 3-storeyed, galleried hall which is top lit. The hall has an arcaded gallery across its second level on the west and south sides, with a stair wrapping up the east and north walls; the stair has a plain rail and newels; the balusters are turned. Deep, moulded band below a coved cornice topped by the light register, which is lit by round-arched windows. There are Tuscan pilasters between each window. At the time of survey (April, 1992), the roof hall was undergoing extensive repair due to water damage. Steel joists had replaced rotten wood beams. The cornice work and wall plaster had been removed from the north wall and part of the west. The first-floor, front parlour retains original plaster mouldings and stone mantel. Railings to stairs and area. The building is reputed to have been the property of the Duke of Clarence.
