Listing Text


(East side)
No.1 Coburg Place (terrace)
(Formerly Listed as:
No.1 Coburg Place)
(Formerly Listed as:


Includes: No.108 ST MARY STREET.
House at end of row, with shop. c1815 (RCHME). Rendered, slate
PLAN: the property returns to St Mary Street (No.108), and
lies directly opposite the King's Statue (qv). Narrow
frontages to St Mary Street to the E and to St Thomas Street
(Coburg Place) to the E, with a bold rounded end between,
facing N along the Esplanade, and with Statue House (qv)
providing an important urban focus.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and attic, 1+3+1 windows. There are 4
flat-roofed dormers, 3 with sash, and a fourth enlarged to
take a 4-light casement. To the E 12-pane sashes at first and
second floors, and to the W a 9-pane above a casement with
transom. On the broad bowed end are central painted-in sashes
in plain reveals, flanked by bowed oriels, to the left with
8:12:8-pane sash above plain sash, and to the right a
6:9:6-pane sash above plain sash.
Ground floor has been completely replaced by a late C20 shop
front, under a continuous modillion cornice. The bowed end has
a mid band, and there is a thin main cornice at the head of
the oriels (dentilled to the right oriel, only), with
blocking-course and coped parapet. The rear wall has a dormer,
and there are 2 large stacks.
INTERIOR not inspected.
This makes splendid urban theatre externally, combining with
Statue House and the King's Statue to provide a fitting
setting to the south end of the promenade. It is unfortunate
that the earlier shop front has disappeared. A photograph of
the 1950s in 'Seaside Weymouth' (Attwooll and West) shows it
with small-pane glazing display windows.
(RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 354; Attwooll M &
West J: Seaside Weymouth: Weymouth: 1989-: 23).
