SS 5404
Nos. 2 and 4
Pair of houses, originally one but part was reputedly once a school. Circa late C18
heavily remodelled and extended in early to mid C19. Plastered walls, probably
stone rubble. Low pitched hipped slate roof. Brick stack at left-hand end and 4
brick stacks along rear wall of original range.
Plan: originally double depth with central stairhall which had 2 large rooms to
either side and subsidiary service rooms to the rear. Probably divided into 2
properties in early to mid C19 at the central hall when a large wing was added
behind the right-hand end and subsequent C19 outshuts were built at the rear
adjoining it.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 3-window front with central bay projecting
slightly. This has probably original 30-pane sash on first floor. Facsimile window
to its left. C20 12-pane sash to right with similar C19 window below. All these
have projecting keystones above. On ground floor to left is large C19 canted bay
with 2:4:2 pane sash windows to each light. Large Doric portico slightly
asymmetrically placed extending to right of centre, probably circa early C19. 2
doorways behind it - the right hand one inserted in circa early C19 is roundheaded
with a C19 part-glazed door. To its left is the original doorway with a C19 part-
glazed door which has a narrow glazed light to either side and a pentagonal fanlight
above with radial glazing bars. There is a flat band dividing the 2 floors and a
parapet which virtually conceals the roof from the front. Rear elevation has large
wing to left with C19 marginal glazed windows. Later outshut to its right.
Interior has staircase with turned newels and wrought iron decorative balusters.
Early C19 6-panel doors and simple moulded cornices. To include rubble garden wall
at front with iron railings and gates which have decorative finials.
