SY6779SE ST THOMAS STREET
873-1/20/361 (West side)
14/06/74 Nos.81 AND 82

GV II

Pair of houses, one time rectory. Late C18. Flemish bond
brickwork, slate double roof with transverse central valley.
3 storeys and attics, 3+3 windows, all sashes in plaster-lined
and painted reveals and with fine rubbed brick voussoirs. 4
hipped dormers with 6-pane in wide surrounds, above 6-pane to
stone sills at second floor and deep 12-pane to a moulded
Portland stone sill band at first floor; the first 3 of these,
in No.81, have been cut back from the sill, with smaller
bottom panes. Ground floor has a wide opening with steel
lintel, and a blocked wide arched doorway with elliptical head
to each house. A stone moulded cornice, blocking-course.
Double gable stacks to coped verges.
The rear has two 6-pane sash hipped dormers and 2 roof-lights
above 2+2 windows, but all temporarily blocked, and the
blocking-course is rendered. A deep but narrow later wing
projects between bays 1 and 2.
INTERIOR not inspected.
This was an unusually grand pair of houses, in the best
Georgian tradition. They are set back considerably, and until
c1990 had shops projecting forward to the street line. The
removal of these shops, and eventual reinstatement of the
original ground-floor detail, represent a considerable
enhancement for the building and the street. Empty, and in
process of restoration at the time of survey.
