Terraced two-bay three-storey house, built c.1870, one of pair with garden to front Now in multiple occupancy.

Red brick walls laid in Flemish bond. Gauged brick flat-arched window openings with torus-moulded heads and reveals, granite sills and replacement two-over-two pane timber sliding sash windows. Gauged brick round-headed door opening with torus moulded surround, replacement flat-panelled timber door with torus moulded brick reveals, timber lintel cornice and plain fanlight. Door opens onto concrete steps and shared concrete path. Shared front lawn enclosed to street by replacement steel railing and pedestrian gate on red brick piers.


Built as one of an identical pair, this Victorian house forms part of a terrace distinguished by the generous front gardens laid out in a suburban fashion. This house retains its simple composition enhanced by correct replacement materials. The details to the brickwork add interest and decorative quality to the house. Gardiner Street Upper was laid out in 1790, but this terrace with gardens was not built until after 1876. The terrace and gardens reflect the rise in prosperity of the middle classes in the later nineteenth century, following a lull in development after the Act of Union, and add considerable variety to the predominantly Georgian streetscape.
