639-1/8/168 (North side)
07/08/52 No.11


House, now used for a dental practice. Early C19 with a C16
core and C18 additions. White brick; slate roof with a
modillion eaves soffit and bedmould.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellar. 3 window range, arranged 1:1:1
with the centre breaking forward slightly: 12-paned sashes in
plain reveals with gauged brick arches to the 1st storey and
smaller 6-pane sashes to the top storey. The ground storey
windows have a single vertical glazing-bar. A raised stucco
band runs at 1st storey sill level. A central 6-panel door is
up 3 steps with a cast-iron handrail: rectangular fanlight and
a wood Greek Doric doorcase with fluted pilasters and a
cornice with a triglyph frieze. Complex rear with 2 large
extensions: an C18 extension of 2 storeys and attic has a
mansard roof, two 12-pane sashes in heavy flush cased frames
and a similar but much large stair window with a lunette above
it. An early C19 shallow-pitched 2-storey gabled wing has
walling in random flint and red brick with a brick band and
dressings. Original 3-window range to each storey, with a wide
central 16-pane sash and two 12-pane outer sashes, one on the
upper storey now blank and the corresponding window below
covered by a later single-storey range in similar materials.
INTERIOR: suggests that the C19 alterations involved making 2
houses into one. Cellar below the east half of the house has a
stone doorway, rebated, with a shallow segmental arch, similar
in style to that below No.12 adjoining (qv). The ceiling has a
massive main beam and joists. In the western half of the house
timbers exposed during repairs are now hidden, and the
interior has only C18 and early C19 features exposed, with the
exception of a large C16 fireplace in the former kitchen which
has moulded stone jambs and a shallow 'Tudor' arch. A fine C18
chimney-piece in one ground-storey room with foliated stucco
decoration. The early C19 stair in the mansard-roofed wing has
bracketed strings, stick balusters and a fine inlaid wreathed
handrail. A number of rooms have plaster cornices and the
entrance hall walls have a dado with raised fielded panels.
