SY6878NW ESPLANADE 873-1/24/115 (West side) 18/06/70 Nos.27 AND 28 Alexandra Hotel, Clarence Buildings (terrace)


Formerly known as: Nos.9 AND 10 ESPLANADE. Pair of houses in row, now hotel. Late C18. Rendered, slate roof. The building lies back approx 3m from the adjacent properties, and was slightly modified from its original form by breaking through the party division, and eliminating one doorway externally; both staircases remain. 3 storeys and attic, 3+3 windows, all plain sashes in flat architraves; 2 small hipped dormers and 2 with Victorian gables with decorative barge-boards and finials. In No.27 the first- and second-floor sashes are deeper than those in No.28, all to a sill band at second floor, and taken down to the plat band in No.27 at first floor. Ground floor has an arched doorway in bay 3, with moulded architrave over a plain fanlight and panelled door; the former doorway to No.28 is now a sash matching the remainder. Cornice band, blocking course and coped parapet, and 4 gable stacks to the double ridge roof. The rear wall has margin-pane lights to the ground floor, and 2 gabled dormers, plus a wide 3-light raking and an early hipped dormer. INTERIOR: the staircases are in wood, to No.27 to full height, with half and quarter landings and some winders, with stick balusters and handrail with wreathing, and to No.28 with square capped newels and 'chinoiserie' balustrade. (RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 354).
