Description

Terraced two-bay two-storey over basement house, one of a largely identical row of twelve, built in 1859. To the front elevation there is a full-height hipped roof canted bay which was extended c.1990 at basement level, with large 'patio' doors to the extension itself. The façade is finished in painted render, whilst the slated pitched roof has a slight overhang and a shared rendered chimneystack with corbelling. The high level entrance consists of a panelled timber door, jambs with decorative brackets, and a rectangular fanlight; it is reached via a long flight of stone steps with decorative wrought-iron railings. The steps abut those of the neighbouring property. The windows are flat-headed and have replacement uPVC frames and painted stone sills. Cast-iron rainwater goods. The house faces out onto the seafront road, but is separated from it by a relatively large forecourt / garden.

Appraisal

Though somewhat altered in recent years with the extending of the bay at basement level and the inclusion of uPVC window frames, this residence is one of Bray's earliest and most complete seafront terraces. It is of considerable importance in terms of local heritage and also makes a positive contribution to the streetscape.
