ST5445 ST ANDREW STREET 662-1/7/242 (North side) 12/11/53 No.1 (Formerly Listed as: VICAR'S CLOSE (East side) Nos.1-13 (Consecutive))

GV I

House at end of row, formerly part of No.1, Vicars' Close (qv). C14 and C15, some later additions. Rubble or coursed and squared rubble, Doulting ashlar dressings, pantile roofs. The street front has a central gable, flanked by wings set flush; that to the left has a parapet, and is shorter than the right wing, which has a plain eaves roof and return gable end. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, windows mainly double-chamfer stone-mullioned casements with stopped drip courses. The central gable has a fine canted oriel with crenellated parapet under a swept cresting with fleur-de-lys, flanked by small slit openings, and to the left is a small cusped light. At the ground floor is a 2-light casement, and a C19 door in a 4-centred opening, with stopped drip. Each wing has a 2-light casement at each floor, and the right wing has a small stair light immediately to the right of the main gable. The main gable has a raised coping, which continues as a parapet to the left, and an octagonal chimney shaft with crenellated capping. The return gable to the right is also coped, above plain rubble walling but with central flush brick flues, cut back below the ridge. INTERIOR: not inspected, but likely to retain early structure and detail, as the house was originally part of No.1, Vicars' Close, which has a blocked doorway to the party wall at ground floor level. Part of an outstanding planned terrace group of the medieval period.
