Sydney Place is a relatively busy road. There is only one terrace of houses on either side before it becomes Onslow Square.
These are fully stuccoed terraces with porches. Most of the houses have a basement, three main storeys, and a garret within a mansard roof. These are slightly more ambitious than the Pelham terraces; they have an additional storey above the third storey, separated by a more elaborate and decorated cornice.
The houses all have casement windows at ground and first floor level, opening (in the case of the ground floor windows) on to balconettes with iron railings. The porches have half-sunk Ionic columns and are identical along the terrace. The first-floor balconies of the individual houses are connected.
The houses have mostly been converted into flats.
