Listing Text


859-1/6/264 (East side)
04/03/52 Nos.138 AND 139


Pair of houses in row, one with shop under. Early C18. Flemish
bond brickwork with painted stone dressings, tile roof, brick
3 storeys, attic and basement, 2+2-windowed. One early C18
gabled 2-light dormer to 138, then all 12-pane sashes in
moulded face boxes, under brick voussoirs with plain keystones
(unusual in Tewkesbury) on stone cills. 138 has a large 4-pane
sash to the right, above a cellar grille, then to the left a
6-pane flush door under a margin-bar transom-light, in fluted
pilasters, and, far left, in fluted incised pilasters, a
glazed door under an elliptical fanlight with radial bars; all
this beneath a moulded cornice.
139 has a late C20 shop front. At each end and in the centre
are channelled pilasters through first and second floors, with
a plain band above the ground floor cornice and above the
first floor windows. The moulded stone eaves carries concealed
guttering. Central ridge stack.
At the back of 138 is a C20 dormer above two 12-pane and a
large 16-pane sash; there is also a very large stack. 139 has
a C19 brick wing in 3 storeys, with 2-light casements at
second floor and 16-pane sashes to V-joint lintels at first
floor, above a flat-roofed addition. INTERIOR not inspected.
This is a very handsome pair of houses, little changed
externally, except for the unfortunate shop front insertion to
No.139, and a relatively rare example in Tewkesbury of
complete rebuilding rather than a fashionable refacing to
older fabric.
