Raised quoins, chamfered plinth and first-floor sill band. Each a 3-window range. Double-fronted pair of houses each with a central doorway and part-glazed door and overlight in moulded pilaster surrounds with cornices, and above a segment headed 2/2 sash with keystone. Either side are single 2-storey canted bay windows with segment headed 2/2 and plain sashes and hipped slate roofs. Above again a single central 2/2 sash flanked by tripartite sashes. Left return, 2/2 sashes and a 2-storey wooden canted bay window to left with 2/2 and plain sashes. Right return, similar sashes. 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.
