EXTERIOR: 3 storeys: chamfered plinth, first-floor band, first- and second-floor sill bands and bracketed eaves. Pair of double fronted houses, 6-window range in all. Each has central doorway with glazed door and overlight in painted stone pilaster surround with flat hood. Above a single 2/2 sash to No.22 with a carved keystone. Either side are single 2-storey canted bay windows with hipped lead roofs and segment headed 2/2 and plain sashes to No.22. Above again a central smaller 2/2 sash flanked by single tripartite sashes. Left return 2-window range with a 2-storey canted bay window to left. All windows to No.21 are C20 uPVC replacements. INTERIOR: not inspected. The Broad Walk comprises a series of Victorian villas and a walk overlooking the Pavilion Gardens originally laid out by Paxton c1850, though most of the surrounding houses were built by speculative developers.
