STYLE: Tudor Gothic. PLAN: each house is L-plan with paired projecting central wings and rear wings. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attic; symmetrical 6-window range with projecting central bays making 2:2:2 fenestration. Gables with elaborate fretted bargeboards to returns, projecting central wings and flanking 3-storey slightly projecting bays. Label moulds over one-light windows to attics and between gabled bays, and over sash windows designed as cross windows on upper floors; single-storey canted bays below front gables with hipped roofs and pendant friezes, probably cast-iron (the bay to No.6 to the left may be later as it is higher and deeper with French windows). No.6 has a 4-panel door and a 20th century porch in the angle. No.4 has a half-glazed lean-to porch in the angle with trefoil-headed vertical panes. The external stacks in the returns are offset at each floor with an inserted semicircular-arched window to the attic and paired chamfered shafts. INTERIOR: not inspected.
