Corner of Toxteth Rd and Bell St, 40 Toxteth Road

This corner house is notable for the extensive use of iron lace on the large, two-storey verandahs.

Corner of Toxteth Rd and Bell St, 40 Toxteth Road

Turn right at Bell Street and on the corner of Toxteth Road (No 40) is an especially large Gothic-influenced asymmetrical villa with two storey bay and a gable peeping above the profusely-laced verandahs. The name of the house, Bowden, is etched in the glass above the front door. Next door is the sober and Italianate Lawn House (No 42, 1888), with round arch windows, and where the effect of a tower is created by an entrance porch and room above. Leadlights surround the door. In keeping with the general air of solidity there are heavy cowls on the chimney stacks.

Turn left into Toxteth Road and the theme of large terraces and villas continues.
