Belongs to a group of 50-52 Castle Street and 2 Steeple Lane.
A short late-Georgian style terrace of three 3-storey houses on a corner site, which have pebble-dashed walls on a freestone plinth and with ashlar quoins, and slate roof with roughcast, brick and pebble-dashed stacks. Nos 50 and 52 Castle Street are 2-bay houses with the entrance in the L-hand bay, above which are blind windows. No 50 to the R has a moulded doorcase with a recessed door of 2 round-headed panels and an overlight. To its R is a 12-pane horned sash window beneath an entablature with dentilled cornice. In the middle storey is a 2-light oriel window. Other windows have smooth-rendered architraves and raised bands. The upper storey has a 9-pane sash window. No 52 has a painted freestone surround to a 6-panel door and plain overlight. Windows have moulded architraves and are 12-pane hornless sashes in the lower and middle storeys, with a shorter 9-pane sash in the upper storey.
No 2 Steeple Lane has a single bay facing Castle Street. It has a 12-pane hornless sash window in the lower storey, 2-light oriel in the middle storey and shorter 9-pane hornless sash window in the upper storey. The Steeple Lane elevation has a 4-panel door and 12-pane hornless sash window to its L. A replacement stair window is upper L.
The rear of No 2 Steeple Lane has small sash windows above a single-storey lean-to. 52 Castle Street has hornless small-pane and replacement sashes. No 50 Castle Street has an added rear wing.
Listed for its special architectural interest as part of a terrace of definite C19 quality and character, and for its contribution to the historical integrity of Castle Street.
