House, now offices. Probably 1690s, detached from rest of
house to left in 1712. Solid rendered front, almost certainly
of brick underneath. Slate roof.
Plan is 1-room wide, 2-rooms deep with stair compartment
between the front and back rooms; entrance-passage to left of
ground-floor front room with closet above it on first floor.
Judging from other contemporary houses in the street, this was

to left: 2 lights of 6 panes each. Prominent moulded
INTERIOR: original wooden dog-leg stair rising to first floor
has pulvinated closed strings, stout moulded balusters, square
newels with flat moulded caps (the caps at half-landing ar C20
replacements), broad moulded handrail. On first-floor landing
2 original doors, each with 2 bolection-moulded panels.
Winding stair to second floor has square newel and moulded
handrail; it probably led to an original garret.
First-floor front room has plain dado with moulded rail and
skirting; late C18 wooden chimneypiece with panelled pilasters
and frieze with urns and festoons, the interior with outer
part of a mid C19 iron grate. First-floor rear room has late
C18 wall-cupboard with panelled doors. On ground-floor
mid/late C19 half-glazed inner front door; upper part has
coloured glass and glazing-bars forming Gothic arches.
