Pair of attached houses. Dated 1898. By Henry Dare Bryan. Snecked limestone rubble and dressings, tile-hung top floor, brick ridge and diagonally-set external gable stacks and double Roman tile gable and hip roof. Double-depth plan. Queen Anne style. 3 storeys and basement; 5-window range. A finely detailed near-symmetrical pair, of which No.47 turns the corner into Julian Road, with entrances set back at the sides, and projecting paired gables to the middle; ground-floor stone-framed windows, first- and second-floor timber windows. Elliptical arches to doorways with winged cupids to the spandrels, beneath a panel with eared architrave, and 2-leaf panelled doors. The central gables are banded with coped tops and ball finials, ground-floor Ipswich windows beneath panels with large cartouches, and first- and second-floor 5-light canted bays set flush with the gable under a wide overhanging brick and stone arch. Outer windows have 3 lights, with fine leaded casements to the left, and forming a balustraded balcony to the right; to the second-floor shallow bracketed eaves dormers with raked roofs; windows to the right have glazing bars to metal casements, with plate glass to the left. Large patterned stacks, and in the left return a matching gable to the front ones. Flat rear elevations with stair windows and single-storey service blocks. INTERIOR not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached front garden walls and piers with ball finials. Strongly influenced by Norman Shaw's Bedford Park, 1881.
