SX4754 HOLYROOD PLACE, Hoe 740-1/57/277 (East side) Nos.5 AND 7 and attached forecourt walls and railings


Pair of houses in planned terrace. Mid/late C19. Stucco with stucco detail; dry slate roof with projecting eaves; 2 attic windows; stuccoed end stacks with remnant moulded cornices and many old clay pots. Double-depth-plan mirror-image pair, each house with 1 room at the front. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys plus attic over basement; overall symmetrical 4-window front. No.7 (right) has original hornless sashes with glazing bars; No.5 has had the glazing bars removed; tripartite sashes under segmental arches to ground floor. Other stucco detail includes: key blocks to ground floor openings; sill strings; pilastered openings with moulded hoods on consoles to 1st floor; moulded architraves and flanking bolection-moulded panels to shorter 2nd floor and large console under stepped eaves on the left. Central pair of round-arched pilastered doorways and panelled doors with plain fanlights over. 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 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.
