TQ3103NE MARINE PARADE 577-1/47/436 (North side) 13/10/52 Nos.41-45 (Consecutive) and attached railings (Formerly Listed as: MARINE PARADE No 41 (Melford Hall Hotel). Nos 42-45 (consec))


Terraced houses, converted into flats. c1825. Amon Wilds and Charles Augustin Busby. Stucco. Gambrel roofs of slate, those to Nos 41 and 45 turnerised. EXTERIOR: 4 storeys with dormers over basement. 3 windows each, with 2 window-range to left return and 5 window-range to right. All entries flat arched with overlights, those to Nos 41-42, and 43-44 are paired and set under prostyle porches of fluted Doric columns; entablature with meander pattern in frieze above Nos 41-42, while the cornice of other porch has been obscured by a backlit, C20 sign. Entry to No.45 set within shallow porch flanked by fluted Tuscan pilasters. The wall to the right of this entry has been pierced by a round-headed window. The basements and ground floors of Nos 41-45 have banded rustication. There are first floor balconies with cast-iron railings to each; those to Nos 41-43 and 45 are supported by cast-iron brackets. No.45 has a balcony with cast-iron railings and brackets to the second floor as well. All windows in the main elevation are flat arched. The facade of each is treated as a full-height and nearly full-width segmental bay. The elevation to No.41 is the most complex, and elements of it are repeated in Nos 42-45: the first and second floors of No.41 are united by a 2 storey arcade with piers of giant Tuscan pilasters and entablature. The attic is treated as single storey arcade with pilasters, entablature and blocking course. The motif arcade and giant order is repeated on Nos 42 and 43, but the plan of the attic storey is simpler, consisting only of a pilastrade and entablature. Although No.44 follows the same general pattern, only a trace of the Tuscan pilaster capitals remain, and instead of a continuous entablature there are 4 cornice blocks supported by modillion brackets marking each subdivision of the segmental bay. No.45 is entirely without the colossal order or arcade; its ground- and first-floor windows are the only ones in the row to have architraves; it has, in addition, a first floor cornice supported by console brackets. The left return elevation has a bay rising 2 storeys, with entablatures at the ground and first floors; the gambrel roof section is here treated as a gable with an end stack. To the left of the 2-storey bay is a lower wing with a canted bay to the ground floor. 2 entries on the right return, that near the corner is round arched and set under a Tuscan prostyle porch; the glazing bars of the door itself and the trapezoidal overlight form a diamond-shaped pattern which dates from the early C20. To the right of this porch there is a less formal entry set under a bracketed, semicircular canopy of late C19 or early C20 date. There are sill bands to the first and second floors, and the fragments of a cornice to the second floor. All the units have flat-arched dormers. Stacks to party walls. INTERIOR: not inspected. Railings to stairs and area.
