Terraced house. c1720, refaced late C19 in Georgian style. Brown brick with red brick dressings. Stucco ground floor with plain 1st floor band. Slated mansard roof with dormers. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, attic and basement. 3 windows. Good architraved doorcase with pilaster jambs, enriched console-bracketed hood; radial patterned fanlight and panelled door. Gauged red brick segmental arches to slightly recessed sashes; ground and 1st floor, 2-paned. Stone and brick cornice to parapet. INTERIOR: comprises two rooms and rear closet to each principal floor, with later C19 closet set on half-landing of staircase compartment to rear of entrance. All doors panelled. Hallway fully panelled, with ovolo moulding, dado rails and box cornices. Flat pilaster strips denote opening into broader staircase hall, fully panelled at ground and first floor levels, but with panelling only to ramped dado height on flights; no panelling above second floor. Staircase from ground to second floor has an open string with two twisted balusters per stair and decorated tread ends. Paired newels on landings, flights below second half landing with arched handrail that may be later. Typical early C18 moulded handrail to upper flights. Staircase from second floor to attic closed string with turned balusters, square newels and neither ramping nor dado. Ground floor front room fully panelled with ovolo mouldings, dado rail and box cornice. Simple C18 marble fireplace with early C19 box grate and C18 mantle with dentil decoration, corner cupboard with round-arched top and curved shelves. Ground floor rear room fully panelled with ovolo mouldings, dado rail and box cornice; corner fireplace adjoins narrow unheated closet, similarly panelled. Closet on half landing set behind shutters. First floor front and rear now joined via folding doors, the rear room with closet. All fully panelled with ovolo mouldings, dado rails and moulded cornices. Front room retains original shutters with bars, C18 marble fireplace with C19 grate and original carved mantlepiece with fretwork decoration.



Second floor front room subdivided but retains unmoulded panelling with dado rail and cornice, C18 fireplace with early C19 grate and cupboard. Inserted wall with sympathetic panelling. Second floor rear room fully panelled with cornice, C18 fireplace with early C19 grate, gives on to closet now bathroom. Third floor landing with curious cupboard incorporating resited sash window, the front rooms divided by horizontal boarding. Basement with closed string stair having particularly fat turned balusters and square newel. Plank doors to both rooms and to front area. Front room retains dresser, fireplace with eared surround and bolection moulded frieze supporting mantle. Rear room with very large tiled opening in corner stack for former kitchen range. The house is a very complete and 'textbook' example of a relatively simple early C18 house, little altered. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached cast-iron railings with torch flambe finials to area, and brick walls to long rear garden. The early C18 houses in Church Row form a most important group.
