Terraced two-bay single-storey house over basement, built c. 1850. M-profile pitched slate roof having clay ridge tiles, partly hidden behind brown brick parapet with granite coping. Rendered and brown brick chimneystacks having clay pots. Brown brick, laid in Flemish bond, to walls, with cut granite plinth course over smooth rendered wall to basement. Square-headed window openings having rendered reveals, granite sills and mixed one-over-one pane timber sliding sash and replacement windows. Elliptical-headed door opening with moulded render surround. Doorcase comprising panelled pilasters, fluted console brackets having acanthus leaf detail and stepped cornice. Plain fanlight and timber panelled door. Square-headed door opening to basement. Granite steps with cast-iron coal hole cover and bootscrape to platform, flanked by wrought-iron railings, those to front on rendered plinth wall having cut granite plinth coping, matching gate to basement.


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 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.
