articulated by banded pilaster strips; ground-floor cill band,
modillion cornice and parapet with a central balustrade
section and 4 fine urns. Doorway has fluted Ionic pilasters to
a pulvinated frieze and modillion pediment, panelled reveals
and a radiating fanlight over a 6-panel door. Eared and keyed
stone architraves with first-floor cill blocks, round-arched
central window with Gibbsian blocked architrave, to 6/6-pane

INTERIOR: building altered in 1960s and converted to 2 units
in 1989. None of the features recorded in RCHME have survived.
HISTORICAL NOTE: probably built by the Weston family. One of
the earliest houses built with the C18 prosperity from the
Newfoundland trade. The emphasis on the middle bay is a
characteristic of provincial Baroque, and the facade has
strong similarities with No.2 St James's Close (qv).
