St Mary's House


House. Late C18/early C19. Timber-framed and rendered; slate
roof with a moulded eaves cornice.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and cellars. 3 16-pane sash windows in
flush cased frames to the 1st storey and 2 tripartite sash
windows to the ground storey, the central window 12-pane, the
2 smaller side windows 8-pane. A central 6-panel entrance
door, up 4 steps with cast-iron wreathed handrails, is
recessed in a plain segmental-arched surround. The fanlight
has radiating glazing-bars and is supported by plain columns.
A C19 2-storey rear wing has been reduced in length.
INTERIOR: the house was used by several wine and spirit
merchants during the C19 and has very extensive cellars,
flint-walled and brick vaulted. Part of the brick is Tudor,
but most C19. On the ground storey, a very fine Adam style
fireplace surround in the room to the right of the entry and a
similar but simpler surround with fluted half-columns in the
room above.
At the rear of the entrance hall a good winder stair with
bracketed open strings, stick balusters and wreathed handrail.
Panelled reveals and internal shutters to the windows. Rate
book entries relating to this site are said to go back to 1759
but the present house seems to be a rebuilding of c1790.
