A C18 red brick house. 2 storeys and cellars. Originally it had 3 storeys
but the upper storey has now been removed and the roof lowered. Before
this was done the house was a particularly complete and interesting example
of C18 work and was exactly copied from a design in Abraham Swan's "Designs
in Architecture' 1757 (vol I plate 15). 5 window range, double-hung sashes
with glazing bars (except ground storey windows lower sashes), in plain
reveals, with flat rubbed brick arches. The central window rises above
a balustraded panel and has a wood moulded and shouldered architrave with
projecting keystones. The central doorway is approached by a flight of
stone steps with one iron handrail remaining and has a wood doorcase and
plain Ionic columns, frieze and a modillion pediment. The doorcase and
window above form a fine central feature. The cellars have ornamental
iron gratings. The rear facade has been built out on the ground storey
in the C20. Roof tiled hipped.
High House forms a group with Nos 22 to 26 (even).
