Gauged brick round-headed door opening with masonry Doric doorcase comprising square-headed door opening flanked by fluted Doric columns supporting panelled lintel entablature with original painted spoked fanlight. Original timber panelled door with eleven raised-and-fielded panels and brass furniture opening onto shared granite platform with original iron boot scraper and granite steps to street. Platform and basement enclosed by original wrought- and cast-iron railings set on granite plinth wall with steel steps providing access to basement, with replacement timber door below platform.

Two-storey painted rubble stone former coach house lining west boundary on Pembroke Lane, with pitched slate roof and brick lined openings including former elliptical-headed carriage-arch with sheeted timber sliding vehicular door.


A handsome terraced early-nineteenth century former townhouse retaining its original façade composition and much historic external fabric, including well-executed ironwork. The granite dressings contrast with the mellow brick, adding colour and textural interest, while the fine Doric doorcase and fanlight forms the decorative focus. The former mews building adds to its setting and context. It forms part of a long terrace of former residences and contributes significantly to the coherent appearance of the streetscape in the heart of the south Georgian core.
