A pair of houses, formerly a single dwelling, built in the mid-C19, possibly to a design by Henry Goodridge.
Reason for Listing
* Architectural interest: although divided into two houses, this is a good example of a restrained Italianate villa of the mid-C19 displaying good quality architectural detailing;
* Group value: it forms an interesting group with other mid-Victorian villas along Cleveland Walk that are listed, showing the later character of this notable suburban development
Lorraine House and Haisbro House, Nos. 26 and 28 Cleveland Walk, is one of a group of four detached villas that were constructed in the mid-C19, and were the first houses to be built on Cleveland Walk. They were possibly built to a design by the architect Henry Goodridge for the Factors of the Bathwick Estate.
The building was sub-divided into two separate dwellings in the C20.
MATERIALS: limestone ashlar with asbestos slate roofs.
PLAN: double depth plan with projecting rear wing. The house was sub-divided into two dwellings in the C20.
EXTERIOR: a two storey, three-bay front. Windows are two by two sashes, triple on the front with arched heads and stone mullions, and louvred shutters on the upper floor. Arched entrance porches. Triple gabled roofline with deep, projecting eaves. Six corniced ashlar stacks of differing heights. The rear elevation is largely blind and with smaller windows than those on the front.
INTERIOR: Not inspected.
