Pair of attached houses. c1891. By Henry Dare Bryan. Snecked limestone rubble with limestone and brick dressings, brick ridge and gable stacks and a concrete tile gableted roof. Double-depth plan. Queen Anne style. Each of 3 storeys; 3-window range. A symmetrical pair has paired gables projecting from the centre, sill and lintel bands and string courses, side entrances, and stone-framed ground-floor mullion and transom casements. Segmental-headed doorways with mullion overlights and panelled 2-leaf doors with a central raised diamond. The front gables have brick and stone relieving arches: 3-light ground-floor windows with a cartouche, paired first-floor windows with alternate long jambs, and grotesque heads above, and 3-light timber second-storey casements below a banded shaped gable. Outer ground-floor bays project beneath a balustraded balcony, with 4-lights and a central segmental-arched transom; first-floor stone cross window, and brickwork bands between the lintel and the coved eaves; casement dormers above the eaves to the front and ends. INTERIOR not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached front garden walls and piers with ball finials. The early part of a development influenced by Norman Shaw's Bedford Park, 1881.
