is an interesting pair of late nineteenth century,
designed to form a single visual unit. Each house is of
three bays one of whic is advanced by approximately six feet. Thus
the whole composition is of six bays with a two-bay breakfront.
The breakfront has three storeys, the remainder four storeys.
Over the porches are mezzanine floors which are visible from the
front and make the houses look rather unusual.
The ground floor of the advanced centre has
segmental-headed windows. The
houses are built of yellow brick with courses of red and blue
brick over the ground-floor windows and across the top floor.
The roof is hipped and
there is a complex eaves-cornice which is cut by the third-floor
windows. The porches
have brick cornices and balustrades.
The gate-piers are of rusticated granite.
