NY4056NW VICTORIA PLACE 671-1/12/282 (South side) 01/06/49 Nos.3-17 (Odd) and railings (Formerly Listed as: VICTORIA PLACE (South side) Nos.1-25 (Odd))


Terrace of 8 houses, now offices. Late 1840s, early 1850s and early 1880s. Calciferous sandstone ashlar on moulded plinth with string course, cornice and dwarf solid parapet. Graduated slate roof, one house with dormer; shared ridge brick chimney stacks. 2 storeys, 3 bays each, except No.17 which has 4th bay over carriage arch. Right and left paired doorways, up steps, have panelled doors and overlights in prostyle Ionic porches. Sash windows, some with glazing bars in plain stone reveals over recessed aprons. Some houses have cellar windows and cast-iron railed voids but others appear not to have had cellars. No.17 has left segmental carriage arch with railed gates. INTERIORS not inspected. This terrace and the one opposite have been carefully matched with the earlier individual houses No.1 and No.2, so that they appear of one build. Nos 1 and 2 are the only houses in the street listed in the 1847 (Mannix and Whellan) Directory, but by the 1851 Census the street ended at No.7. The 1873 Directory (Kelly's) still shows the street ending at No.7, but in the 1880 Directory (Arthur's) No.9 had been built. Nos 11-17 appear for the first time in the 1884 Directory (Barnes Moss). J Cornforth, Country Life (1978), illustrates and refers to this as "the best late-classical street" in the city, but he queries the date of construction, hence the above notes. Nos 13, 15 & 17 were listed on 13.11.72. (Country Life: 11 May 1978: P.1331/2).
