Terrace of 17 houses. 1830s (Harvey) with later alterations. Rendered mass wall construction; slate roofs; stacks with brick shafts with bands. Italianate with Gothick detail to verandahs.
Plan: The houses are sited with small gardens in front onto a pedestrian lane. Each house one room wide, 2 rooms deep with entrance to left; service blocks to rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys and attic. The houses have deep boxed eaves and most have round-headed doorways and fanlights but other details vary. Some have 2 first floor sash windows, some one, and some have one first floor blind recess in place of the second window. There has been some reglazing, but many retain small-pane sashes. All have attic dormers. No 1 has a square-headed doorway and overlight with margin panes and a French window with small panes with margin lights. It also has a very pretty 3-bay timber verandah with cranked arches with Gothic spandrels with pierced quatrefoils in roundels and a slate and glazed roof. No 5 has 2-pane sashes with horns and a pretty gabled Gothic timber porch on posts with timber lattice in the gable and lattice sides. No 6 has 2-pane horned sashes and a pretty 3-bay verandah on timber posts with elaborate pierced carving to the spandrels and in panels above the outer bays; tiled roof to verandah.
INTERIORS: Not inspected but may retain features of interest.
This is an interesting example of a terrace of small houses with some superior detail.
