Listing: Locally listed in 2004. Large scale early Victorian
stucco terrace, with carriage drive, entrance gates and piers, stone boundary
wall to road.
Comment: One would guess that this imposing terrace was built on
a prime bit of land between the town centre and what is now West Park and was
then probably still the race course. It would have been high enough to be
unworried by the marshy state of the race course but handy for the town, the
countryside and the races. It would have been occupied by a very high
class of customer. But then Wolverhampton's Victorian new town, New
Hampton, was built just down the road and this may have done little for its
status. Certainly by the second half of the 20th century it was somewhat
run down and the stucco peeling. Various attempts at restoration provided
some rather startling colour schemes, but not much else. This latest
version seems much more effective in all respects and this fine building looks
as it ought to, dignified and imposing.
