Earlier 19th century; recast by Ian Lindsay & Partners, circa 1970. 2-storey, 2-bay rectangular-plan house forming part of terrace; a-symmetrical.

B Group with Nos 12-14 and 24-38 Main Street, Newhaven (see separate list entries). One of the many Newhaven properties refurbished by Ian Lindsay & Partners during the 1970s, this has features common to all - timber sash and case windows, concrete copes and a harled forestair to standard Lindsay detail. However, the decision to keep the existing stone front with minor repairs as required segregates this property from those around it (all of which are harled and limewashed). Note the retention of the fishing village vernacular with the exterior stair and inherent simplicity. Despite harsh detailing (note the painted surrounds and harled forestair), the practice?s Newhaven work should be acknowledged as a pioneering attempt to conserve and improve an entire fishing village. A substantial project with a clear philosophy, it contrasts with more recent restoration attempts and thus, illustrates the differing and developing attitudes towards conservation. Previously listed as Nos 35 & 36 Main Street, Newhaven.
