house & shop occupied by

House. Late Cl7 house with front of refined brickwork, with late C18/early C19
alterations and extensions, and minor C20 changes. Walls of brickwork in Flemish
bond with fine joints, moulded plinth, brick eared architraves with corner scrolls
and triangular ornaments below the cills remaining as fragments, later brickwork
in header bond filling the former openings, and still later brickwork surrounding
the present openings, cambered basement arch (to filled opening), small rubbed flat
arch to upper central window. The main feature of the facade is a full-height
central Ionic Order in fine cut brickwork, with dentilled entablature, two pilasters
with entasis and Ionic Caps on curved plan, and plain stepped bases: within this
framework is a pediment (of the same Order but smaller) above a doorway. Half-hipped
tile roof with catslide at rear. The original symmetrical south front elevation
of two storeys had two windows on each side of the centrepiece, but only the outer
architraves of the former pairs of windows remain, and later single windows have
replaced them without symmetry. Sashes, the ground-floor on the west side is a
wide late C20 splayed bay (replacing tba former shop front). The C19 doorway has
a plain frame, wood pediment on brackets and 6-panelled door. Within, there are
two Cl7 overmantels of plaster decoration and a small section of plaster ornamental
ceiling (with fully moulded cornice). The small window above the doorway has a
lead Sun fire insurance sign, no 105673. A design of some distinction, considerably
mutilated but retaining the centrepiece.
