Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Semi detached pair of late 19th/early 20th century houses with rich terracotta and molded brick dressings and chimney stacks with recessed brick panels. No. 292 retains many original features, including sash windows with a top sash divided into ten panes over a plain bottom sash, and a ground floor rectangular bay on the left hand side surmounted by a timber cantilevered balcony. This runs over the original panelled and glazed entrance door, which has an elaborate semi-circular peacock fanlight and two terracotta pilasters to either side of the architrave. The fanlight and windows on No. 290 have been altered but a full width timber balcony over the rectangular and canted ground floor bays remains. The houses were built in 1888, possibly by Derby Alderman Boam. No. 290 now forms part of the adjacent hotel, while no. 292 is a private residence. (1)
