Nos 6 and 8
SE 1532 45/852


Circa 1840, would appear to have been built as a large villa and later subdivided.
Two storeys, sandstone ashlar. Long 5 bay front with very shallow centre break of
3 windows. Hipped slate roof with corniced chimneys. Quoin pilasters, frieze,
moulded cornice and blocking course broken forward over the pilasters and over the
centre break, the blocking course being slightly heightened in each case. First
floor sill band dies into quoin pilasters. Revealed sashes, with quoins down to sill
band on first floor. The central first floor window blind with eared architrave
surround. On the ground floor the outer windows are tripartite with flanking
Tuscan pilasters and shallow leaf moulded consoles capping the dividers, deep
entablatures with projecting cornices. Central entrance with 4 panel door and
rectangular marginal glazed fanlight, flanked by Tuscan pilasters, entablature with
projecting cornice and blocking course. Later side entrances. Nos 6 and 8 probably
date from the late 1830s as one house.
