Early C19 red-brick house.
Reason for Listing
160 High Street, Stevenage is designated at Grade II for the following principal reason:
* Architectural interest: it is a good example of a polite, early C19 town house
The house was built in the early C19 on the High Street which is notable for the survival of many C17 houses after a great part of the town was burnt in a fire of 1807.
The two-storey house is constructed of red brick with a brick plinth. The pitched roof, clad in red, clay tiles has a moulded ridge stack on the right gable end. The centrally placed six-panelled door has a fanlight under a semi-circular cutter brick arch, and is flanked by two- over-two pane sash windows under cambered cutter arches. There is another window to the right, and three similar windows on the first floor.
