Title
Houses in Spring Terrace
Description
This pair of late eighteenth-century town houses forming part of a row of similar pairs of houses are in the Sheen Road conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames and were Grade II listed in 1968, listing number 1065363. Number 6 has early Victorian additions including an Ionic porch, an eaves cornice, and is covered in creamwashed stucco, an appearance which it retains today following renovation and construction of a wall and gateway to the front boundary. Some clearance work appears to have been in progress at the time of this photograph, judging by the piles of soil and nearby rubbish skip. Number 5 has had its whitewash removed since this photograph was taken, and the balustraded wall to the front of the house has been truncated to the width of the property. The driveway to the left of view serves the telephone exchange that was built in the 1930s, requiring the demolition of number 7, which was paired with number 8 at the end of Spring Terrace, which survived. The driveway has since been remodelled resulting in the removal of the K6 telephone box and the gateway, including the Art Deco lanterns and ironwork shown here. Also in view is a London Transport bus stop with a group of waiting passengers, partly obscured by a passing saloon car. The full height of a substantial concrete lamp post can also been seen, since replaced by a modern steel one.
