This pair of semi-detached houses was built in 1881 and immediately put to use as Westfield College. Number 6, to the left with the Westfield plaque, sometime between 2000 and 2013, was remodelled as a family home. The Sharp plaque is on number 4, which, in 2013, was undergoing similar building works.
