SD5428NW GREAT AVENHAM STREET
941-1/14/146 (South West side)
Nos.8 AND 10
Two very small town houses (originally part of row of 6).
c.1820-25, altered. Red brick in 4+1 English garden wall bond,
with sandstone dressings and slate roof (part covered by
damaged felting). Double-depth plan, each house
single-fronted, with back extensions and through-lobby between
the 2 houses. Two low storeys over cellars, 4-window range.
The doorways, each to right and up one step, have round-headed
architraves with raised moulded rims, moulded imposts, and
semi-circular fanlights, No.10 with radiating glazing bars;
and the lobby doorway to the right of No.10 has a wedge lintel
and board door. One window at ground floor and 2 above, those
at No.10 all 4-pane sashes No.8 altered, all with raised sills
and those at ground floor with wedge lintels. Chimneys on
front and rear slopes of roof. Rear and INTERIOR not
inspected. The item is part of a formerly complete set of late
Georgian lower-middle class houses in this street (laid out in
Great Avenham Field, advertised for sale as building plots in
1825), and probably among the first.
