842-1/7/255 (East side)


House. MId C19, probably masking an earlier structure. Solid
rendered walls. Slate roof, the front section gabled and with
crested ridge tiles, the rear section with ridge parallel to
the street and with a catslide behind. 2 rendered chimneys on
right side-wall. Double-depth right-angle plan with rear
lean-to. 2 storeys with garret; 1-window range, the ground and
second-storey windows set over slightly to the right; long
erratically-windowed return to Emberry's Drang on left. Front
has raised quoins. Windows have flat eared architraves with
slightly pointed tops; 2-paned, box-framed sashes with horns
and a single upright glazing-bar. Gable-window has a bracketed
sill. Shaped and pierced bargeboards. Below the base of each
bargeboard is a winged cherub-head and on the apex of the
gable a small lion; all these are probably later additions.
Return front has been altered, but it contains a doorway
surmounted by a cornice on consoles. 2 windows with 6-paned
sashes in the second storey, 1 of them in the rear lean-to.
INTERIOR not inspected.
