II*

Single house, now terraced. The front of the house of 1720, the back of 1750. Brown brick set in Flemish bond with red brick dressings, timber-framing to north-east corner, roof of tiles. In plan, the house has broadly one room to the front, of 1720 and one to the back of 1750, and the staircase in the middle. Three storeys, one-window range, with later buildings blocking the right-hand half of the street facade. Flat-arched entrance with moulded wooden doorcase, panelled door and overlight; a bracketed canopy with modillion cornice breaks back between the brackets and continues over the window, a 6/6 sash in a flush frame. Segmental-arched window with gauged red brick head to first floor, with flush frame and 6/6 sash; on the second floor a segmental-arched window under a gauged brick head, probably of late C19 or early C20 date; this part of the front rebuilt; red brick dressings to quoins at first-floor level; parapet. The rear elevation has a pair of sash windows to the ground floor divided by a broad mullion and having thick glazing bars, possibly reused in 1750; above these, a two-storey canted weatherboarded oriel having dentil and modillion cornices to both floors and replacement sashes; single-storey C20 addition to right. INTERIOR: . Entrance hall with dado rail, side passage to rear with panelled dado. Ground-floor front room has plank-and-muntin panelling which forms a partition to staircase passage; timber framing visible in the north-east corner of this room extends the full height of the house. Well probably of pre-C18 date in staircase passage. Ground-floor back room has unmoulded panelling, moulded plaster cornice, fireplace surround with beaded ornament and separate mantelshelf. The staircase, built round a conduit, has moulded risers; C18 turned newel and balusters removed for repair. First-floor principal front room has moulded panelling, moulded plaster cornice, and fireplace surround of C18 date with grooved ornament and a keystone of ogee profile. The smaller first-floor front room has panelling awaiting re-erection at time of inspection. The first-floor back room has a moulded dado rail, elaborate plaster dentil and modillion cornice, and a fine rococo chimneypiece of c.1750 with foliage consoles, scrolling foliage surrounding a bird on the lintel, and eared and shouldered overmantel frame presently removed for repair; original shutters to bay window. On the second floor a casement, presumably of pre-C18 date, is now blocked up in the present bathroom; there is plain panelling throughout, the two back rooms partitioned by panelling, that to the south having a moulded plaster cornice, that to the north an original fireplace surround and mantelshelf.
