SY67NE OLD CASTLE ROAD
873-1/4/241 (West side)
14/06/74 No.2
with boundary wall and gate piers
(Formerly Listed as:
OLD CASTLE ROAD
No.2)

II

Detached villa. Early C19. Rendered, slate roofs. A tall but
narrow-fronted detached house facing the street, with a lower
service range attached to and set back to the left; all
enclosed by a boundary wall.
EXTERIOR: principal range in 3 storeys; at second floor are
two 16-pane sashes in deep reveals, above a 2-storey central
bow with 8:12:8-pane sashes and dentil cornice. Ground floor
is enclosed by a late C19 glazed verandah on a low brick
panelled wall, and incorporating a contemporary glazed door
with margin panes to the left; opposite this, in the original
wall plane, is a similar door, with margin panes, side-lights,
and transom light.
The glazed verandah roof continues above a rubble stone wall,
and returns, by a hipped end, to the left gable end, which has
a plain sash at first and second floors, plus a 2-light
small-pane casement at the first floor, and a glazed verandah
front.
The street front has a moulded stone cornice and blocking
course, and the parapet returns at each end to a central
gable. The right return is plain, with a large brick stack.
The rear wall has a 4-pane sash in deep reveals, to a slight
cambered head; this front also has parapet and coping. The
former service wing is hipped, in 2 storeys and with 3
windows, all plain sash, but at the right-hand end, near the
main range, is a 2-light small-pane casement at first floor
level, and a similar opening below. A large stack at the outer
end.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: the stone wall to the left of the
verandah continues a short distance to a square gate pier with
pyramidal capping, and beyond the opening with plank gateway a
further pier and length of wall approx 2.7m high, with
saddle-back coping, across the full width of the site. To the
right of the frontage the boundary wall continues in garden
wall bond brickwork incorporating a plank gateway, and
returning along the flanks and rear of the site.

An earlier survival in an area mostly developed in the later
C19 and early C20.
