639-1/11/664 (South side)
House, later divided into flats, now offices. Circa 1819.
Possibly by William Wilkins. White brick front, red brick
sides and rear; slate roof.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and basement; the building has developed
in 3 stages. The main block has a 3-window range of 12-pane
sashes in plain reveals with flat gauged arches to the 1st and
2nd storeys. On the ground storey, a large segmental
flat-roofed bay with a triglyph frieze and cornice has 3
12-pane sash windows.
To the west of the main block is a slightly lower 3-storey
range with 2 12-pane sashes in plain reveals on the 2nd storey
and 2 similar windows on the 1st storey, one of which has been
lowered. A 16-pane sash window with segmental-arched surround
to the ground storey.
A raised brick band runs between the 1st and 2nd storey
windows of this part of the house and a change in the
brickwork indicates that the 2nd storey was added later. A 3rd
lower section at the west end is still 3-storey: a single
blank window to the 1st and 2nd storeys. On the ground storey
a single-storey addition, in matching materials with a hipped
roof, projects on the front.
The main range at the rear is in 3 storeys with a basement. 3
window range: 12-pane sashes with segmental heads in flush
cased frames to the 2nd storey; partly replaced by 2-light
casements on the 1st storey. The ground storey has a large
flat-roofed canted 3-light bay projecting above the basement.
At the west end various smaller extensions, mainly with
12-pane sash windows.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
