Nos 37 and 39, in the centre, form a mirrored pair with one bay to each side of a paired doorcase and central 1st floor window. The parapet is swept upwards in the centre. Below it there is a large inscription: 'GROVE TERRACE 1824'. Nos 41, 43, 47 and 49 retain glazing bar sash windows with rusticated stone or painted stone lintels. Nos 27, 31 and 33 have sashed windows with rusticated lintels; the 1st floor windows of No 29 and the central window between Nos 37 and 39 are similar. The ground floor of No.29 has straight-sided timber bay windows on brick bases, with slated roofs and with fixed lights facing forwards. No.35 has C20 casement windows. Nos 37 and 39 each have a 2-storey straight-sided bay window, with tripartite sashes. No.45 has a wide early/mid C20 bow window with timber mullions and transom and leaded glazing.
