GV II

Includes: No.16 (PART) THE PARAGON Clifton. Terrace of 5 attached pairs. c1796. By William Paty. Rendered with limestone dressings, brick party wall and lateral stacks, and pantile and slate mansard roofs. Double-depth plan. Late Georgian style. Each of 3 storeys, attic and basement; 3-window range. Originally paired 3-storey houses with outer doorways, linked by single-storey blocks, articulated by pilaster strips with a plat band, cornice and parapet; Nos 7 & 8 formed the centrepiece with a pediment across the party wall and a relief of the Black Prince and Prince of Wales' feathers. Doorcases have pilaster strips set forward to a cornice, semicircular-arched doorway with a fanlight, and 6-panel door, the top pair glazed. No.1 has a single-storey ashlar porch with a cornice, and the left-hand block is part of No.16 The Paragon (qv). 6/6-pane sashes, 3/3-panes to the second floor, single 8/8-pane basement sash, and single dormers with paired 2/2-pane sashes; No.1 has a shallow 2-storey bow with triple 6/6-pane sashes and fluted architraves, and slate to the lower section of the roof. No.3 has triple horned ground-floor windows to the side block. No.4 has a second storey added to the right-hand block, with a raking parapet, and an oculus to the second floor. No.5 has a second floor to the side block as No.4, and plate-glass sashes. No.6 has a single-storey banded porch with a moulded coping, recessed doorway with a rectangular fanlight of 3 circles and 8-panel door with roundels; right-hand block extended to the full height. Nos 7 & 8 have full-height side blocks; No.8 has an 1830 Grecian single-storey porch with paired pilasters, cornice and raised central panel with fan reliefs, rectangular overlight with batswing fanlight, and 8-panel door with roundels. Nos 9 & 10 have full-height side blocks, the inner pilaster removed from No.10, both with porches as No.8 and 2-leaf doors with single panels. INTERIOR: entrance halls with dogleg stairs to the front with stick balusters, ramped rail and curtail, stone fire surrounds, 6-panel doors and panelled shutters. Designed as a terrace of 7 pairs and known as Prince of Wales' Crescent. Although the link blocks have been altered, this terrace is a significant example of the so-called "quasi-semi-detached" form of terrace, first appearing on the 1794 map of the Eyre estate in St John's Wood, London: it achieved greater popularity in the Regency period, as at Lansdown Place in Cheltenham. Nos 3, 4 & 5 were listed on 4.3.77. (Ison W: The Georgian Buildings of Bristol: Bath: 1952-: 224; Gomme A, Jenner M and Little B: Bristol, An Architectural History: Bristol: 1979-: 224).
