32 The Ropewalk

One of a pair of houses c1831-34. Now converted into offices. Part of a group of houses on The Ropewalk which were amongst the first to be built in The Park c1828-34. Formerly gardens, the site had prominent views over Nottingham Terrace, (now named Park Terrace) and across The Park. The 4th Duke of Newcastle had grand aesthetic aspirations for a select ‘residential plan’ in The Park and by identifying these plots and commencing building work he aggravated local feelings concerned at impending loss of The Park as an area of common recreational use. Grade II Listed. Three storeys plus basement. Alterations and additions mid 19c and 20c. Stucco with concrete tile roofs, coped gables and central ridge stack. Rusticated ground floor on garden front with ground floor sill band, eaves cornice and blocking course. Windows mainly original glazing bar sashes with bracketed cornices to first floor and moulded surrounds above. Symmetrical garden front to Park Terrace with main block flanked by side entrance bay.
