Terrace of 23 houses, now houses and flats, with mews arch and attached area railings to Nos 7 and 22 and railings to right boundary of No.1. c1832. Architects RW and C Jearrad. PLAN: terrace of 22 houses joined to further house at left by mews arch. Double-depth plan with side stairwells and with service ranges to rear. EXTERIOR: ashlar over brick with slate roof and ashlar party-wall stacks; wrought-iron railings; ashlar balustrades. 4 storeys on basement, 2 first-floor windows per house. Richly detailed facades have stepped breakforwards, the main feature being a 2-storey rectangular bay surmounted by dentil pediment, with wide corniced window to second floor and mock thermal window above. The entrances to Nos 2 and 3, 4 and 5, 6 and 7 and 9 and 10 are paired, otherwise mainly to left; to paired houses the entrances are set back behind a pillared portico which continues across ground floor windows forming loggias. Flights of steps (roll-edged where original) to mainly 4-panel doors (some part-glazed) with overlights with glazing bars. Above loggias, to first floor are dentil pedimented rectangular bays with outer pairs of Ionic columns and lattice balustrade between, continuing as 'loggia' across centre windows with Doric pilasters, solid balustrade and continuous architrave, frieze and cornice. Otherwise, the design is similar, but without porticos and first-floor loggias: doorcases have pilasters with frieze and cornice, surmounted to first-floor by similar architrave with pilasters on plinths and apron. Other detailing includes third-floor window above pedimented bay with cornice on consoles; cornice



over second and third floors and blocking course with copings. Windows: ground floor has mainly tripartite windows, 6/6 between 2/2 sashes some of which are inserted into loggias as bays, similarly to first-floor pedimented bays, otherwise first-floor has 8/8 and 6/6 sashes. Second floor: corniced windows are tripartite 6/6 between 2/2 sashes, otherwise 3/3 sashes. Third floor has tripartite 3/6 between 1/2 sashes in elliptically-arched surrounds to main bays, and 3/6 sashes. Basement: tripartite windows with 6/6 between 2/2 sashes where original. Return to south has ground-floor entrance to No.1 in rectangular bay with paired pilasters, 4-panel double doors with side-lights and overlight with glazing bars; to first floor a pedimented rectangular bay with paired Ionic columns; then 2 full-height window-bays and 2-storey, 2-window range (with first-floor sill band and crowning cornice and blocking course) which abuts tall and wide Mews Arch to side of No.1 (qv); mews arch at north end between Nos 22 and 23 (Regan House). Rear: many original 8/8 sashes, some with margin lights. INTERIOR: photographs dated 1988 (conservation office) show No.21 has embellished cornices; plaque with horse-riders to hallway and marble fireplace; marble fireplace with Ionic columns to rear, first-floor room; otherwise not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: Railings to south abutting No.1 have spearhead bars and stick dog-bars. Area railings to No.7 have embellished rods. No.21 has tent hood on brackets. Balustrades with bulbous balusters to sides of steps and to areas. HISTORICAL NOTE: RW and C Jearrad bought the Lansdown development from Pearson Thompson c1830 and continued building to their own designs. The most impressive example in Cheltenham of a terrace of quasi semi-detached houses (qqv Nos 114-124 Bath Road and Nos 27-32 Montpellier Villas), giving the impression of linked pavilions, a type conceived in the late C18 as an integral part of the Picturesque ideal in urban planning (qv The Paragon, Black Heath, London, 1793). Verey describes this as the `most original terrace in Cheltenham', and an important part of the overall setting in Malvern Place. Forms an architectural unit with Mews Arch to side of No.1 Lansdown Terrace, Malvern Road (qv). Nos 11-17 now known as Evelyn Court (Nos 1-19 (consecutive)).
