GV II*

House now office. Late 1830s probably by John Hodgson of Carlisle. Calciferous sandstone ashlar on moulded plinth, with string course, cornice and central parapet panel ending in scrolled brackets. Graduated slate roof with coped gables; rebuilt end and ridge brick chimney stacks. 2 storeys, symmetrical 5 bays; double-depth plan. Central panelled door and overlight, up steps, in prostyle Ionic porch. Sash windows with glazing bars in plain stone reveals over recessed aprons. Small cellar vent openings under ground-floor windows. Window over entrance is larger in stone architrave, with console-bracketed cornice. INTERIOR has panelled doors in painted wooden architraves; panelled internal shutters to each front window. Stone stairs with patterned cast-iron balusters and moulded wooden handrail. Principal rooms have moulded plaster ceiling cornices and roundels; stone fireplaces. The 1841 census shows that Robert Bendal, attorney, lived in this house and that this and the house opposite, No.2 (qv), were then the only houses in the street. As Robert Bendal lived in Devonshire Street in 1837 (Carlisle Directory) and was probably the first person to live in the new house, a date between 1837-41 can be established for construction.
