rainwater head. By T Taylor Scott. Red brick on chamfered
plinth (all dressings of calciferous sandstone) with string
course, sill band and dentilled cornice. Graduated greenslate
roof with hipped roof dormers and decorative ridge tiles;
ridge brick chimney stacks.
3 storeys, 2 bays each, in Gothic Revival style. Closely
similar houses with 2-storey and attic section to left bay,
gabled and 3-storey to right. The left doorway has a shallow
gabled porch containing a quatrefoil, panelled double doors
and a pilastered and finialled surround. Above is a 2-light
sash window with trefoil-headed lights and a central
colonnette. Above that is a large box dormer. 2-storey canted
bay to right. Central mullion and transom and trefoil heads, 4

windows with plate tracery, 2-lights with trefoils, quatrefoil
and drip mould. The gables are finished with beast finials.

Victorian town houses. The design for both houses appeared in
