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 coping. Rendered chimneystacks with clay pots, and cast-iron rainwater goods. Brown brick, laid in Flemish bond, to walls, with masonry plinth course, and smooth rendered wall 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, doorcase comprising panelled pilasters, fluted console brackets with acanthus leaf detail, and stepped cornice. Fixed-pane fanlight and timber panelled door. Remains of cast-iron bootscrape to granite platform. Granite steps having rendered wall, cast-iron railings with loop detail and alternating fleur-de-lis and honeysuckle finials. Matching railings to front on carved granite plinth wall, matching gate to basement area.


This house is enhanced by the retention of historic features such as the classically influenced doorcase and well-maintained windows. 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.
