GV II

House. Mid C18. Flemish bond brick with stone cornice and
cills, slate roof hipped to front and rear with brick stack to
right. Double-depth plan.
3 storeys with semi-basement; 3-window range. To top of the
moulded cornice above the parapet which is returned to left,
is row of upstanding cast-iron rounded dentil-type
embellishment. Slightly cambered gauged brick arches to
windows; 3/6-pane sashes to second floor, 6/9 panes to first
floor, 6/6 panes to ground floor and C20 frames to the 2
basement windows which are covered by bars. The wooden
doorcase to left has a moulded architrave with ornamental
consoles supporting a deeply moulded pediment over
semicircular fanlight; the spandrels have foliate ornament;
the 6 raised-and-fielded panels to door have the smaller panel
to centre.
The rear has flat gauged brick arches to 2 late C19 horned
2/2-pane sash windows to second floor. The first floor has a
mid C19 wide cantilevered semi-elliptical balcony which has
cast-iron trellised railings with stars at the joints and a
semi-domed roof of C20 roofing-felt tiles; the full-height bay
window follows shape of balcony and much of the glass is
curved; French windows to centre. The flat-arched wide mid C19
ground-floor window is an 8/8-pane tripartite sash and the
basement has a 4/8-pane sash window.
INTERIOR: entrance hall to left, originally through-passage,
has slate steps up to mid C19 inner door with margin panes and
2 semicircular arches. Room to front has triple-hung
counter-balanced sash shutters and a narrow mid C19 reeded
cornice. The staircase, to right, between the rooms, is mid
C19 with a swept mahogany handrail and stick balusters resting
on a closed string, probably to the former staircase. Behind,
against right wall are recesses and cupboards in former
service stairwell.
Room to ground floor rear has C19 pine floorboards, narrow
reeded cornice and panelled shutters, now fixed, to tripartite
window. Room above has late C19 white marble fireplace with
ornamented arch-plate register grate, a highly ornamented
cornice, with a stiff-leaf frieze, a foliate centre ceiling
rose and high skirting board. First-floor front room has
simple C18 painted stone fireplace. Rear basement room has C19
cast-iron front with raised lozenge panelling to former open
fireplace; room to rear has a segmental stone arch to open
fireplace.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: rear garden is enclosed by Flemish-bond
brick walls approx 40m long, 2m high at house stepping down to
1m at end; plinth of wall nearest to house on left, (east), of
limestone rubble, suggesting this was the site of a former
building.
