PRESTON

SD5428NW FRENCHWOOD STREET
941-1/14/122 (South West side)
Nos.36 AND 37

GV II

Pair of small town houses. c.1840, altered at the rear. Red
brick in Flemish bond, with sandstone dressings and slate
roof. Double-depth plan, No.36 double-fronted (and canted
slightly back at bend in street), No.37 single-fronted, both
with back extensions (that to No.36 recently rebuilt). Two
storeys over cellars, 3+ 2 bays; with a rendered plinth, 1st
floor sill-band, plain frieze and moulded gutter cornice; and
a downspout slot at the angled junction. No.36 is almost
symmetrical (the central openings offset slightly to the
right), No.37 to the right has the doorway in the 1st bay;
both doorways, up 2 altered steps, have moulded architraves
with dentilled cornices on consoles, and 4-panel doors (the
upper panels round-headed), with overlights; and No.36 has a
lobby doorway at the left end, with a convex surround. All the
windows are apparently unaltered unhorned 12-pane sashes with
square panes, raised sills and wedge lintels; and there are
cellar window gratings in the pavement beneath each
ground-floor window. Ridge chimneys to No 36; end-wall
chimneys on both slopes of No.37. INTERIORS not inspected.
Very similar to Nos.38 and 39 which continue to the right,
forming part of a formerly complete set of late Georgian
lower-middle class town houses in this street.
