Plinth, sill band to each floor and moulded eaves. 3 double fronted houses, 9-windows range, with slightly projecting end pavilions, each with a pedimented second floor. Each house has a central doorway with glazed door and overlight in a plain ashlar surround reached up a short flight of steps. Above a single 2/2 sash, and either side a 2-storey canted bay window with 2/2 and plain sashes and lead hipped roofs. Each outer bay has a single round headed casement on the second floor, with 5 irregular dormers between. Right elevation has 2/2 sashes to ground and first floors and 3/3 sashes to the second floor.

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 development. Some are reputed to be designed in detail by his former pupil Edward Milner from 1871, and built by Saunders & Woolcott for the 7th Duke.
