GV II*

Pair of attached houses. c1845. Limestone ashlar with party wall stacks, roof not visible. Double-depth plan. Neoclassical style. Each of 2 storeys and basement; 2-window range. A fine composition with an Ionic tetrastyle-in-antis temple front, with a full entablature and dentil pediment with scroll and wreath in the tympanum. Set back behind is the house with outer, lower 1-window entrance blocks with moulded parapet and scrolled brackets to the sides of the centre, and open entrances with subsidiary Ionic distyle-in-antis porches, to recessed doorways with overlights and 2-panel doors. Architraves to tripartite central ground-floor 4/4-pane flanked by 2/2-pane sashes, the rest 6/6-pane sashes with moulded cills. Side elevations have semicircular-arched stair lights. INTERIOR: No.13 has an entrance hall divided by an elliptical arch with Ionic capitals, a right-hand stair flight with turned balusters and curtail, central lateral first-floor attic stair, ground-floor rooms connected by folding panelled doors, a good marble fireplace with Ionic capitals, heavy cornices, bracketed in the stair hall, panelled shutters and 6-panel doors. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached spear-headed front garden railings, gates and 2 pairs of rusticated piers with pediment caps. A particularly well resolved solution to the problem of applying a Classical temple front to 2 houses. Built by the developer of the whole street, the last house for himself. The wreath was a favoured motif of RS Pope. (Gomme A, Jenner M and Little B: Bristol, An Architectural History: Bristol: 1979-: 268).
