Pair of houses in planned terrace. Mid-late C19. Stucco with stucco detail; asbestos slate roof with projecting eaves; 2 attic dormers; deep stuccoed end stacks. Double-depth-plan mirror-image pair, each with 1 room at the front. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys plus attic over basement; symmetrical 4-window front. Original hornless tripartite sash with glazing bars and consoles to ground floor of No.9 (left), otherwise C20 windows; No.11 with original 3/6-pane hornless sashes to 2nd floor, otherwise later horned sashes including tripartite sash to ground floor. Stucco detail includes: channelled rustication to ground floor with keyed segmental arches to windows and central pair of pilastered doorways under keyed round arches; sill strings; pilasters and moulded hoods to 1st-floor openings; moulded architraves and flanking bolection-moulded panels to 2nd floor, and large console to stepped eaves on the left. Doorways have plain fanlights and panelled door to No.11. INTERIOR: not inspected but likely to be of interest. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: forecourt walls and entrance bridge surmounted by cast-iron railings with roundel frieze and spear-head finials. Included for group value as part of an important group of terraces and villas by Foulston and his pupil Wightwick on the Hoe, a scheme which placed Plymouth in the forefront of town planning in the early/mid C19.
