Terraced two-bay single-storey over basement house, built c. 1850. M-profile pitched slate roof with clay ridge tiles, partly hidden behind brown brick parapet having cut granite coping, and rendered chimneystacks with clay pots. Brown brick, laid in Flemish bond, to walls, with masonry plinth course, and lined-and-ruled rendered wall to basement. Square-headed window openings having rendered reveals and masonry sills, and one-over-one pane timber sliding sash windows retaining folding timber panel and batten shutters to interior. Fixed-pane window to basement. Elliptical-headed door opening with moulded render surround, doorcase comprising panelled pilasters, fluted console brackets having acanthus leaf detail, and stepped cornice. Teardrop fanlight and timber panelled door. Square-headed door opening to basement. Cast-iron bootscrape to granite platform. Granite steps. Cast-iron railings with loop detail and alternating honeysuckle and fleur-de-lis finials, matching pedestrian gate to basement, those to front set on carved granite plinth wall.


This building is enhanced by the retention of salient details such as the classically influenced doorcase, well-maintained windows and teardrop fanlight. The cast-ironwork adds technical interest and attests to the skill and artisanship in mass-production in the mid-nineteenth century. Heytesbury Street, named after Baron Heytesbury, Viceroy 1844-6, was first laid out in 1846 and was nearing completion by 1861. The streetscape maintains much of its original character, with well-preserved classically-influenced brick houses, many with Greek revival details, creating a strong sense of rhythm and order.
