This row of three Queen Anne style Edwardian terraces now has the same street address and have been divided into several units. It consists of two symmetrical terraces built right up to the street and a third set back concertina style with a variation in decoration. The main feature of each house, constructed of “blood and bone” red brick and render is the central half timbered gable projecting from the hipped terracotta tile capped roof.
This particular row of four double storey terraced homes has always interested me. It appears to be the result of several remodeling efforts and very difficult to date. The original terraces are now obscured but appear to be quite old and plain, perhaps even 1860s or 1870s. Their current form has elements of Queen Anne, bungalow and tudor revival. Possibly the result of an interwar makeover. Sadly, however they have also been significantly altered since.
