PORTLAND

SY6871 EASTON STREET, Easton
969-1/4/45 (East side)
Nos.42 AND 44

II

Two houses in row. Early C18; No 44 heightened late C19. Good
squared and dressed stone block, slate roof. Two-unit
central-entry plan to No 42 and smaller 2-unit plan with
left-hand entry to No 44. No 42 is lower than adjoining
houses, and with steeper roof pitch. Front is 2 storeys,
2-windowed. At first floor are two paired 4-pane sashes to
wood mullions, above one similar but larger, left, and a
4-pane, right, and all set towards right of facade, Near
centre is plank door in plain opening. Stone stack, left, and
remains of good stone stack with capping built in to adjoining
property to right. Wing to back with pent roof. The scale and
layout of this house suggests that it may be one of the
earliest structures in this street.
No 44 of 3 storeys, one-windowed. Gabled porch on right of mid
C20 windows, that on first floor with chamfered to former
mullioned window. Two plate-glass sashes to late C19 upper
storey. Rendered right end stack.
Interiors not inspected but probably of interest.
