(Formerly listed as: Nos.1, 2 AND 3 and attached railings, walls and gate piers GV

II

Houses - now houses and part of school. c1860, extended c1900. Possibly by Penty. Stucco, with no. 4 in mottled brick with stone and red brick dressings. Slate roof. EXTERIOR: Three storeys with attics and cellars. The north-west facade has three sill bands and a storey band which extend across the full width of the earlier stuccoed fronts. No. 1 is of two bays and has sashes divided into large square panes, with margin panes and with segmental rusticated heads. The surround of the left-hand ground-floor window projects forwards slightly under a cornice. The door, in the right-hand bay, has two recessed panels above two lozenge panels and has an architrave with keystone. The remainder of the stuccoed facade, to the right, forms a mirrored symmetrical composition of 2-2-2 windows, with the outer pairs of windows more closely spaced and with sashed windows with segmental heads, glazed in square panes. At ground and first-floor level the paired windows to the outer bays have surrounds which project forwards under a cornice. At ground-floor level the two central bays have adjacent windows, with doorways to each side. The right-hand doorway, formerly to no. 3, is now blocked and contains a window. The left-hand doorway, to no. 2, has a recessed door with two over three panels, and an overlight with segmental top. Above the deep modillioned eaves the earlier part of the building has four attic dormers with segmental tops and has chimneys to left and right and between houses. No. 4 has a wide casement window with a semicircular arch to the left of its doorway. Above, it has paired windows at 1st and 2nd-floor levels. The 1st-floor windows are casements, each with two lights, two transoms, and segmental brick arches with keystones. The 2nd-floor windows are glazing-bar sashes with segmental arches. To the right a bay projects slightly and has two stone storey bands, and alternating quoins of red brick to the upper storeys. On the ground floor there is a pair of sashes with glazing bars to their upper leaves and with segmental brick arches with keystones. The single 1st-floor window is similar, and the 2nd-floor window is a glazing-bar sash. The attic is lit by a tripartite glazing bar sash window with segmental arched head, within a shaped gable with coping and three ball finials. The doorway to no. 4 has an architrave with a semicircular arch with rusticated archivolt, mask keystone, Doric pilasters, and a cornice hood on brackets. The door has four panels above a single panel. The left-hand return wall of no. 1, facing north-east towards Dalton Terrace, includes a 2-storey porch with blocked doorway. On the south-east side no. 1 has a 2-storey canted bay window. No. 2 and no. 3 each have a 2-storey bow, with 3 windows to each floor. No. 4 has a 3-storey brick canted bay.

INTERIOR: not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: at the front the basement areas are enclosed by railings with steeple-shaped finials and are bridged by three sandstone landings. Railings, partly of a slightly different design, extend for approximately 25 metres along Driffield Terrace. At the north-east side the area railings return to abut the porch, and railings extend south-eastwards from the porch along Dalton Terrace to its junction with The Mount. They are set on a low wall of squared limestone with sandstone copings and contain a gate. The railings and wall extend south-westwards along The Mount and contain two pairs of gate piers and an end pier. The piers are cylindrical above octagonal bases and have an annular groove below a cap which is carved to resemble a section of fluted Greek Doric column. The gates are of cast iron. Nos. 1, 2, and 3 Driffield Terrace form, with nos. 5, 6 and 7 (qv) the two end blocks of an incomplete terrace development. No. 4 is a later addition.
