- II

House. c1760, with late C19 and C20 alteration. Red brick, laid to Flemish bond, with ashlar stone dressings, tall brick gable chimneys and a Welsh-slated roof.
FRONT ELEVATION: 3 storeys above cellars, 2 bays, with set-back doorway to right, set within pedimented surround, and approached by flight of 5 stone steps. To the left of the doorway, stacked window openings, now with C20 joinery, set below flat, rubbed brick heads, and with projecting cills. The windows diminish in height as they ascend. Shallow eaves cornice. Below ground floor window cills, a plain band course incorporating the heads of cellar openings with boarded shutters.
INTERIOR: Entrance hall with plaster cornice and half glazed interior door. Principal rooms to the front on all floors, mostly with fireplaces removed or replaced, but retaining some C19 panelled doors. Plain stair with boarded covering to balusters. Glazing bar window to first floor landing. Cellar entrance with flanking panelling below the stair, with 2-panel cellar door leading to side-by-side cellars with hearth to north-east side wall.
HISTORY: No 7 Union Street is shown on Perry's Map of Liverpool (1769), forming part of a fully-developed street frontage now almost wholly replaced by late C19 and early C20 redevelopment. Despite alteration, this building is one of the few buildings of this early period of development to survive in this part of central Liverpool.
