History

In a block with Nos 2 and 3, and dated 1874 in an early photograph. It is first shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey.

Exterior

A house and shop of 3 storeys and attic, of renewed scribed roughcast front painted cream, under a slate roof with roughcast stack to the L and brick stack to the R. In the lower storey is a 3-light shop window on a glazed-tile stallboard. Recessed to the L are a glazed shop door (No 4a) and half-glazed fielded-panel house door (No 4) under overlights. In the 1st floor is a tripartite 4-pane sash window, under a bracketed cornice (although an early photograph shows an oriel window here). The 2nd floor has two 4-pane horned sash windows in moulded architraves with keystones, on a corbelled sill band continuous with Nos 2 and 3. The central attic window has a similar architrave to paired 2-pane sashes, under a gable with fretwork barge boards and finial.

The rear has altered windows and ground-floor extension.

Interior

Not inspected.

Reasons for Listing

Listed for its special architectural interest as a commercial and residential building of definite late C19 character, part of an imposing architectural group formed by Nos 1-6, and for its overall contribution to the historical townscape of Lancaster Square.
