House in row, now hostel and commercial premises. Early C18,
back wing C17 or earlier. Flemish bond brickwork, square box
framing to rear wing, tiled roof, brick stacks.
PLAN: symmetrical central-entry plan with rear hall, and stair
off to left. Main compact front block absorbs older wing, to
rear left.
3 storeys and basement, 5-windowed. The central bay slightly
brought forward. 12-pane sashes in face boxes, splayed brick
voussoirs, stone cills. At ground floor, left, 2 later 16-pane
sashes. Grille openings to basement each side. Central
panelled C18 door on 3 steps in pilaster case with frieze and
slight hood. A moulded wood cornice with lead dressing runs
full-width at ground floor; 2-course brick string above first
floor and moulded wood eaves course to hipped roof.
The back of the main block has 2 bays with 4-pane over 12-pane
sashes to segmental brick heads, and a small stack at the
corner. The left gable wall has long arched 21-pane staircase
sash and a 12-pane sash. Right, back, is a deep wing in braced
square-panel framing with brick nogging and brick gable
containing 3-light casement above a 12-pane sash. The outer
flank wall is clad with horizontal boarding, and has a large
square C17 eaves stack.
INTERIOR partly inspected. Entrance hall leads to back lobby
with some panelling, 2 arched openings, and geometrical
staircase with open string, stick balusters and wreathed
handrail, through 2 storeys. Fluted pilaster at foot of stair.
Various panelled C19 doors with fluted pilaster and rosette
surrounds. Some simple moulded cornices. Basement under the
whole property includes heavy beams and joists, and thick
brick division walls with arched openings. Rear wing not
inspected, may have items of interest.
A fine town house facade and one of the finer formal buildings
in Church Street, the building inside has been sub-divided so
that the quality of the interiors is not easy to appreciate.
