the same building line as Nos 1 to 3 and 7 to 17 East Street, whereas
the present house is set well back. 5 window front set back, 2- storey and
attic. Usual brickwork. Closely set sash windows with keys. Brick strings.
Parapet has 3 stone vases and small moulded stone coping swept up to form gable
in centre, giving the effect of an open pediment. Round-headed windoi+i iti gable
with stone imposts and key. Rubble brick arch to central lst floor window has
shaped soffit and keystone. Fluted Ionic pilasters, dentil cornice and pedimen
t to doorcase. Iron balustrade fanlight, lion keystone, Iron balustrade to
entrance steps. Good contemporary plasterwork internally.

Nos 1 to 17 (odd) and Outbuildings behind Nos 1 and 3 form a group
being of particular interest because most of them date from the fire
of 1731. Also No 5 (Eastway House) forms a a group with Dwarf Wall,
