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


This house is enhanced by the retention of historic features 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 of iron 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.
