Listing Text


1685-1/7/104 (West side)
09/07/74 Nos.15 AND 16
(Formerly Listed as:
Nos.15-20 (Consecutive))


Pair of houses, now offices and a restaurant. Early C19,
altered C20. Sandstone ashlar with a slate roof and gable
stacks. Double-depth plan, with the doorways originally placed
together in the central bays, but with rear wings to the
3 storeys above cellars, and 2 bays in each house, with a
shallow plinth, a sill band on the first floor, and an eaves
cornice with a low blocking course. The ground floor of No.16
has been altered by the insertion of a recent shop front, but
the doorway of No.15 remains. It is approached by 2-sided
steps with nosings and has a plain surround under a cornice
and a recessed 6-panel door with an overlight. To the left of
this doorway, but offset to the right, to make space for a now
blocked doorway further to the left, is a window. Like all the
others it has plain reveals, but has a fixed window frame
divided to resemble sashes with margin lights. All the other
windows, except those on the second floor of No.15 which have
top-hung casements, are sashed without glazing bars.
INTERIOR: No.15 has a dogleg open-string staircase with
scrolled brackets, 2 stick balusters per tread, and a ramped
mahogany handrail.
