No. 5 has a C20 tiled attic storey and is built out above the bay. No 12 has a slate roofed C20 attic storey. At the rear the terrace was designed to present a facade to Alexander Street. Later the street frontage was built up. There are 12 storeyed wings which project at the north with pediments. Some have C19 and C20 alterations and additions but many retain their original features.
