exposed; end stacks have rendered chimneyshafts with old pots;

EXTERIOR: 3 storeys with attics and cellars, latter now used
by No.9 Fairfax Place (qv); 2-window range. Ground floor has
C19 timber shop front, part-glazed 4-panel doors each end and
central 6-panel door, all recessed with stone steps and plain
overlights, with 2-light display windows between. Right-end
timber plain pilaster to plain fascia. 2-window front above of
horned 4-pane sashes including a pair to first-floor right.
Plain eaves. Hipped roof end onto street.

early, if not original, stair. Rest of house not inspected but
