with rectangular traceried fanlights on first floor, with continuous line
of tented verandahs on iron brackets, all with trellised piers and simple
rails. All 22 houses with ground floor bows, with 3 glazing bar or
replacement sashes separated by Ionic pilasters, each with panelled doors
to left with semi-circular fanlight, those at the left end of the terrace
with flights of steps decreasing in number uphill (to right). Margin light

Ionic pilaster quoins supporting cornice and gabled roof. Regular fenestra-
tion of 3 glazing bar sashes to first and second floors, and 2 with keyed
heads to ground floor, central panelled door and semi-circular fanlight in

This whole return block is No. 7 St Augustine's Road and is not separately
listed. There is no such composition at right return of main terrace
elevation. The terrace was part of the redevelopment of a cavalry barracks
after 1820 by James Townley, the area becoming Spencer Square, of which this
terrace forms the western side. Vincent van Gogh lived and taught French at
a private school at No. 6, April-June 1876, and a blue plaque on the house
records this. (See Busson, Ramsgate, 109)
