Cast-iron railings and gates on stone plinth. EXTERIOR: basement and 3 storeys; 2-window front to each house. Short flights of steps, bridging the area, lead to doorcases of sunk-panel pilasters, friezes with paterae and cornice hoods on foliate consoles; 6-panel doors beneath radial fanlights recessed in round-arched architraves with moulded imposts and transoms, and panelled reveals. To left of each door, 3-light canted bay window rises from basement; No.8 has 1-pane sashes, No.10 has 8- and 12-pane sashes. On upper floors, all windows are 12-pane sashes, those on first floor taller, beneath cambered brick arches: both floors have sill band. Rear: 2 and half storey projecting wings with pent roofs, and 12-pane sashes with stone sills and cambered brick arches. INTERIOR: not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: railings and gates are turned, with flower-bud tips. Nos 8 and 10 are shown on Nathaniel Whittock's Bird's-eye View of the City of York in the 1850s, and probably formed part of GT Andrews' planned scheme for the newly opened-up Priory Gardens, formerly the grounds of the former Holy Trinity Priory.
