House. 1906. By E. Wood and J. H. Sellers. Brick with flat

addition to rear and garage to left. A central door with
glazed upper panels sits within a brick recess all below a
leaded fanlight with a dentilled transom. 2-storey canted
bay window in bay 1. Windows have timber mullions (and
transoms on the ground floor) and leaded lights. They are of

parapet is enriched by diamond motifs in raised brickwork
and rises to a higher level at each corner. Arched window to
