Edwardian planned terrace. Timber panelled doors, carved door canopies and sash windows. All white painted. Highest quality craftsmanship. Unique to this area. Ornate detailing in sandstone or terracotta. Two storeys with attic dormers. Heavily decorated and remarkable in their grandiosity. Classical Baroque-style timberwork. Doors are framed by brick panels with curved fluted brackets above terracotta tiles and pedimented porches.
