History

Built in 1828 and first shown on the 1834 town map.

Exterior

Belongs to a group of 11-19 Segontium Terrace.

A late Georgian terrace of nine 3-storey 2-bay houses with slate roofs and brick or roughcast stacks to the R. Entrances are in the L-hand bay, reached up steps. In front of the houses are original iron railings on dwarf walls, with pointed finials and cone finials to the stanchions. Gates are replaced. Nos 15-19 have a larger plan than Nos 11-14 and project forward in the rear elevation. They also retain original architraves in the front elevation while Nos 11-14 have late C19 detail to the front.

Late C19 rendered front with eared and lugged architraves and sill bands in smooth render. The doorway is within an added gabled half-lit porch and has a replaced half-lit panelled door. Windows are 4-pane sashes, except upper L which is blind.

Reasons for Listing

11-19 Segontium Terrace is listed as an ambitious urban development prominently sited above Slate Quay. Notwithstanding some loss of its original unified design, the terrace contributes to the strong Georgian tradition in Caernarfon and documents the growing prosperity of the town in the early C19 in the wake of the development of Caernarfon as a major N Wales port. No 12 retains some original detail.
