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 granite coping. Rendered chimneystacks with clay pots. Brown brick, laid in Flemish bond, to walls, having cut granite plinth course, and channelled lined-and-ruled rendered wall to basement. Square-headed window openings with rendered reveals and granite sills, 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. Granite platform and steps having cast-iron railings with loop detail and alternating fleur-de-lis and honeysuckle finials. Matching gate and railings on granite plinth wall to front.


This house is enhanced by the retention of historic features such as a 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 a strong sense of its original character, with well-preserved classically-influenced brick houses, many with Greek revival details, creating a strong sense of rhythm and order.
