GV II

Terrace of 7 small town houses, No.4 now office. c.1850-60, altered. Red brick in Flemish bond, with sandstone dressings and slate roofs. Double-depth plan, each house single-fronted, built in halls-adjoining pairs, with coupled back extensions. Two storeys over cellars, each with 2 windows at 1st floor except Nos 4 and 8 which have 3, the pairs successively stepped up the slope and linked visually by a 1st-floor sill-band ramped up from pair to pair, and a plain frieze and moulded gutter cornice likewise ramped. The doorway to No.8 is at the right-hand end but all the others are coupled, and all have moulded architraves with emphatic dentilled cornices on consoles, and panelled doors with overlights; in addition, nos 4 and 8 each have a through-lobby doorway to the left, with deep lintel and moulded cornice. Each house has a sunk cellar window protected by a grating, one window at ground floor and 2 above (except Nos 4 and 8 which both have an additional window over the lobby door), all these windows with raised sills and wedge lintels; Nos 4 and 5 have sashed windows (mostly 12-paned) but all the others have altered glazing. Large multi-flue chimney stacks at the junctions between the pairs. INTERIOR: stick-baluster staircases; moulded plaster cornices; 2-room cellars. The terrace forms a group with the Harris Institute attached at the south end.
