Rusticated base, with continuous ground floor iron Doric colonnade with continuous tented verandah on 1st floor with simple rails, trellised piers and valancing, with circular and bobbin-shaped patterns. Parapet and stacks ranged along whole length. End left house (No. 29) canted out of segment, with cross window and Diocletian on 2nd floor and single margin light French window with rectangular fanlight patterned to match the iron work of the verandah. Half-glazed door to left with semi-circular fanlight to left and large sash. All other houses with glazing bar sashes to 2nd floor (some now sashes) and margin light French windows on 1st floor with traceried rectangular fanlights (3 bays to each house unit). Most verandahs divided between houses by wooden or spiked rail partitions. Variety of doors, mostly still the original 8 panelled doors with central moulded vertical piece with semi-circular fanlights, largely still traceried. Basements with sashes, the areas (beneath the collonade) often now covered in, with variety of iron railings. Right return with round headed window openings, shaped gable end and late C19 shop front (now hotel entrance) with plate glass, boarded dado, central half-glazed door and tremendous fascia culminated in a central pediment, all in wood. Identical to Nos. 1 - 14, and completing the terrace bisected by The Plains of Waterloo. Only 8 of the 15 units had been built by the time of Collard and Hurst's map of 1822.
