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. Three storeys plus basement. Painted stucco facades with artificial slate roofs. Mid19c and late 20c alterations and additions. Rusticated lower floors to rear elevation facing The Ropewalk plus sill band, eaves cornice and blocking course. Moulded surrounds to original glazing bar sash windows at first and second floor level. 4 storey canted window bay and 3 storey smaller square bay added. Rusticated ground floor to main front facing Park Terrace with sill band, cornices, eaves cornice and blocking course. Three storey canted window bay with later attic storey addition. 3no. glazing bar sashes at each level. To the right, single storey addition, mid 20c, with angled corner and French window. Side bay above has 20c French window and overlight with small glazing bar sash at first floor level. 20c railings to boundary with The Ropewalk.
