19 Old Steine

19 Old Steine on the corner of Steine St. acts as a 'bookend' to the terrace of regency houses on the right. These date from 1786 when they were known as South Parade. Most are listed, but no.19 in victorian Queen Anne style is not. The condition of its characteristic terracotta panelling is not good.

To the left of no.19 the view down Steine St. is attractively terminated by Steine Mansions 1899. This was designed  by the same architect, Clayton Botham, as the Seven Stars 1897 in Ship Street. And it shows. Steine Mansions is also unlisted.
