This interesting row of three double storey terraces plus splayed corner shop. The corner shop has been altered at some stage. At the time the photo was taken the original render had been stripped back to expose bare bricks, however this has since been replaced and painted over. While the bare brick treatment that was common in fashionable 1960s renovations looked quaint it exposed porous brick and grout which made them susceptible to water ingress. The regency style corner shop is notable for the large decorative urns which grace its parapet as well as the fine brackets on its cornice, Georgian style door and window mouldings and corner balconette.
This iconic “Paddington style” row, “Castle Terrace” is a row of five double storey houses which features a prominent third storey mid terrace and castellated motif. The name is emblazoned between a medieval castle motif, including twin turrets and battlements and three keystoned windows. In addition to the different parapet, the mid terrace also features a cast iron column which splits the iron lacework of the row in two.
