SW7834SE ST THOMAS STREET
580-1/6/151 (West side)
Town house, probably merchant's house. C17: probably for
Thomas Melhuish 1656 (lease), 1657 lease to Andrew Rider,
merchant. Render replacing stucco on timber-framed jettied
front between rendered rubble side walls corbelled out for
each floor; steep dry slate roof gable end on to the street;
rubble axial stack heightened with brick. Double-depth plan. 3
storeys including 2nd floor partly in roof space; 2-window
range (1st floor). C20 twelve-pane horned sashes and C20 pair
of 16-pane 2-light casements to gable. Ground floor has two
C17 ovolo-moulded oak doorframes with ogee stops on the left
with C20 six-panel door fronting through-passage far left, and
C20 top-glazed door adjoining early C19 eighteen-pane
projecting shop window plus sidelights. INTERIOR retains old
floor and roof structures and possible stair or garderobe
recess to right-hand wall. A notable survival for W Cornwall
of a C17 merchant's house of this type, gable-ended and with
right-angled plan to street.
