GV II*

Terrace of 4 houses, now offices. c1826. Possibly by RS Pope. Limestone ashlar with party wall stacks, roof not visible. Double-depth plan. Neoclassical style. Each of 3 storeys and basement; 3-window range. A composed terrace of projecting end houses linked by a colonnade of Ionic columns, spaced 1:2:2:1 to each house, to an entablature and balustrade of square balusters and panels with wreaths. The upper floors have pilasters from a plat band, to a frieze, cornice and parapet. End doorways have pilasters to an entablature and cornice and semicircular arches, and paired central doorways have semicircular-arched architraves, to fanlights and 6-panel doors. Plain ground-floor windows behind the colonnade, architraves to the rest, ground-floor cornices, and console cornices to the first-floor windows behind the colonnade; 8/8-pane sashes, 4/8-panes on the second floor. INTERIOR: entrance hall with an elliptical arch to a central stair hall with a lateral dogleg winder stair with stick balusters and a banded rail, set in a bowed party wall, and top lit by an oval lantern; basement range in keyed fire surround; marble fireplaces; egg-and-dart mouldings, architraves with roundels to 6-panel doors. Probably Bristol's first Neoclassical terrace; attributed to Pope on the basis of the characteristically irregular colonnade, and use of wreath motif.
