Semi-detached houses, now flats, c.1878 to the early patent concrete slab system pioneered by W H Lascelles, builder, with assistance in design by Norman Shaw. Coloured concrete, brick, and concrete tile-hanging stained to resemble clay. Tile roof with brick stacks. Deep plan, the two-storey houses a mirror image of each other, with projecting wings to front and sides. All windows casements, those to jettied first floor with lattice-pattern iron tracery. Entrances in side wings under elaborate projecting doorcases with console brackets, pilasters and original doors. Interiors not inspected. Also included in the listing is the original concrete front boundary wall to no. 237. Included as a remarkable survival of early concrete technology, designed with exceptional architectural skill. This semi-detached pair form a strong group with the listed nos. 226 and 228 opposite, also built to the Lascelles system.
