SP2089-218i (North side)
10/7 No.9 (Devereaux House)
House, now offices. Early C18 with alterations of the mid to late C19. Red
brick; hipped plain ti1e roof brick ridge stacks. 2 storeys and attic with
giant Ionic pilasters to the corners, and moulded bands to first floor and
former eaves level; the roof was apparently raised in the C19 and now has
bracketed oversailing eaves. 5 bays: 15-pane glazing bar sashes with gauged
brick heads and panelled keys breaking into the moulded bands; 3 gabled dormers
with glazing bar sashes. Late C19 canted bay window to ground floor right taking
up the space of 3 bays and containing plate glass sashes with raised keys. C20
glazed door to left of centre with moulded wooden doorcase, flanked by Ionic
pilasters. The door occupies the position of a former window of which the gauged
head and keystone survive and its Ionic surround may have been removed here from
its original, probably central, position when the aforementioned bay window was
introduced. Early to mid C19 wing to the left. 2 storeys with plain pilaster
strip to the left hand corner and plain coped parapet flush with the front wall.
2 bays: first floor glazing bar sashes with wedge-shaped lintels grooved as
voussoirs, and raised keys. Late C19 four-light canted bay window to the left
and a single-light window to the right. All are late C19 plate glass sashes with
gauged brick heads and raised keys. Interior not inspected.
