All windows flat arched with projecting sills. Entablature band with projecting cornice below the blocking course. Nos 2, 3 and 6 have banded rustication to the ground floor. Floor-to-ceiling windows open onto a first-floor balcony enclosed by cast-iron railings and supported by cast-iron brackets. First- and second-floor windows to Nos 2, 3, and 6 have architraves; each first-floor window of No.2 has a floating cornice; first-floor windows of Nos 3 and 6 each have an entablature with a cornice supported by a pair of console brackets. The third-floor windows of No.2 have architraves. Elevation of No.1 has an extra window range to the right of the bay, in which is set a flat-arched entrance with sidelights to door and overlight; this is framed by Tuscan aedicule comparable to but wider than those found on Nos 2, 3, and 6; in addition centre window in bay to third floor is blocked, and there is a storey band between the second and third floors. All have 2 x 2 sashes of original design to second and third floors. Stacks to party walls. INTERIOR: not inspected. Railings to stairs and areas of all but Nos 4 and 5. The terrace has undergone so many alterations, particularly to Nos 4 & 5, that it is now hard to find a unit which has all the original features. The street was originally called Lyall Place.
