Harbour House

GV II

House in row. Late C18 front with later C19 modifications,
late C17 or early C18 back range. Flemish bond brickwork,
squared and coursed Portland stone, tile and slate roofs.
PLAN: a parallel-range building, with an early range behind a
rebuilt front block.
EXTERIOR: the front is in 3 storeys with attic, 3 windows;
2-light flat-roofed dormers above 9-pane sashes, above a large
square flat-roofed 1:3:1-light Victorian oriel with modillion
cornice, and a 12-pane sash. Ground floor has two 4-pane
sashes. The sashes are all to brick voussoirs in painted
reveals and to stone sills; the ground floor sashes also have
a stone keystone. To the right, in a pilaster doorcase with
open pediment is a 6-panel door under radial fanlight, on 4
nosed steps with simple iron handrail. The steps rise to the
height of an ashlar plinth. A plain string at the level of the
bottom of the oriel, and a thin sill band. The blocking and
parapet return at the ends, above a stone modillion cornice.
Large stacks at the gables.
The rear range, in stone with slate roof, is also in 3 storeys
with attic; the stone section with swept-down roof, is set
forward from one bay, left, in brickwork. There are 2
close-set early 8-pane sash dormers above two 12-pane sashes
to flush moulded boxes, brick voussoirs and stone sills, at 3
levels. The set-back section has 6- over 12-pane sashes in
reveals. Both parts have a brick saw-tooth dentil eaves.
INTERIOR not inspected, but likely to be of interest.
This is the grandest of the line of properties facing N across
the Quay, at the point where Trinity Road and Trinity Street
converge.
