TQ 8885 7/87
A terrace of yellow stock brick houses (Nos 1 and 3 are now plastered and No. 4
is painted) built by Brassey of the firm of Sir Morton Pete Brassey Lucas and Co.,
who also built the Southend Railway, circa 1860.
This terrace with Clifton Terrace and Royal Terrace provide almost the only examples
of the south end of Prittlewell as it was at first known.
Each house has 1 window range and 1 two-storeyed canted bay surmounted by ornamental
cast iron railings (12 bays in all). Raised brick bands extend between the storeys,
between the bays. The window are mainly double-hung sashes with single vertical
glazing bars, in rusticated brick surround (painted). The doorways are approached
by flights of steps and have raised brick surround and moulded brick cornices.
Roofs slate, hipped at the east end. No. 5 has a C20 tiled attic storey and is built
out above the bay. No 12 has a slate roofed C20 attic storey. At the rear the
terrace was designed to present a facade to Alexander Street. Later the street
frontage was built up. There are 12 storeyed wings which project at the north with
pediments. Some have C19 and C20 alterations and additions but many retain their
original features. The roadway at the rear, formerly a mews to the Terrace has a
surface of hard vitreous sells with lines of granite paving.
Nos 1 to 11 (consec), 11A and No 12 (Argyle Hotel) with
Nos 1 to 6 (consec), Clifton Terrace form a Group.
