GV II

Terrace of seven double-fronted houses stepped downhill from No.27 to the left. Mid C19. Painted stucco, slate roofs with stacks to the party walls and ends, mostly with dentil cornices. PLAN: double-depth. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; each house is a 3-bay symmetrical 4-window range. Each house has an eaves band, plain pilasters, a moulded first-floor sill string course with a similar course just below and banded rustication to the ground floor. Central bay projects with a shallow-pitched bracketed gable above the eaves; the pilasters flanking this bay meet as a semicircular arch above paired narrow 2/2-pane sash windows with horizontal glazing bars and moulded imposts and archivolts. A shallow balcony (Nos 27-30 cons. have cast-iron balustrades) below the sill, supported by elaborate consoles, forms a porch over a set-back semicircular-arched door with a fanlight. Nos 27, 28, 30, 31 and 32 have original doors with 2 vertical panels, No.29 has 4-panel door and No.33 has late C19 six-panel door with chamfered arrises. 6/6-pane sash windows to the first floor of outer ranges are flanked by pilasters between the eaves band and the sill string; brackets to the sills connect the two strings and flank panelled aprons. Ground-floor windows are 2/2-pane tripartite sashes with horizontal glazing bars. INTERIOR: not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: the terrace is fronted by a plinth to former railings connected to the houses by dividing walls terminating in pyramidal-capped piers. Devon Square was the centre of the development carried out for the Courtenays c1840-60 to the designs of JW Rowell. A remarkably well-preserved terrace.
