House, including front railings and steps. Late C18 with some C19 internal
alterations to rear. Squared limestone rubble. Brick stacks. Pantile
roof. Cast-iron railings on ashlar dwarf wall. Central entrance hall plan.
2 storeys, 3 bays; symmetrical. Central pedimented bay breaks forward. Two
opposed flights of 4 stone steps to entrance, with railings and ornamental
iron grille to cellar window below. Doric doorcase with pilasters
supporting fluted entablature and dentilled open pediment; 6-panelled door
and radial fanlight in arched beaded-panel reveal. 12-pane sashes with
keyed stucco flat arches and cills. Stucco first floor band. Similar first
floor sashes with plain stucco flat arches. Hipped roof. Twin axial
stacks. Right return, facing Market Street, has 2 windows to each floor
similar to front. Railings extend approximately one metre from front, with
pair of gates flanking steps to entrance: chamfered ashlar plinth, fluted
column posts with pineapple finials and vertical bars with fleur-de-lys
finials linked by mid- and top-rails. Interior. Original details include:
open-well staircase with ramped and wreathed handrail and column-on-vase
balusters with square knops, moulded stairhall ceiling with cornice and
central fan design; moulded ceiling cornices, composition chimneypieces and
beaded-panel doors and window shutters in architraves to main rooms on
ground and first floors. A fine and largely intact example of a modest late
Georgian townhouse, probably one of those built for William Marris from his
£10,000 lottery winnings. W Andrews, The History of Winterton, 1836, 17.
