(Formerly Listed as:
House now office. Late 1830s probably by John Hodgson of
Carlisle. Calciferous sandstone ashlar on moulded plinth, with
string course, cornice and central parapet panel ending in
scrolled brackets. Graduated slate roof with coped gables;
rebuilt end and ridge brick chimney stacks.
2 storeys, symmetrical 5 bays; double-depth plan. Central
panelled door and overlight, up steps, in prostyle Ionic
porch. Sash windows with glazing bars in plain stone reveals
over recessed aprons. Small cellar vent openings under
ground-floor windows. Window over entrance is larger in stone
architrave, with console-bracketed cornice.
INTERIOR has panelled doors in painted wooden architraves;
panelled internal shutters to each front window. Stone stairs
with patterned cast-iron balusters and moulded wooden
handrail. Principal rooms have moulded plaster ceiling
cornices and roundels; stone fireplaces.
The 1841 census shows that Robert Bendal, attorney, lived in
this house and that this and the house opposite, No.2 (qv),
were then the only houses in the street. As Robert Bendal
lived in Devonshire Street in 1837 (Carlisle Directory) and
was probably the first person to live in the new house, a date
between 1837-41 can be established for construction.
