698-1/25/654 (North side)
7 and 9 The Grove


Pair of semi-detached houses. Probably c.1870; altered. Brown
brick in header bond, with sandstone dressings and some
applied black-and-white "half timbering", slate roof. Square
plan, each house single-fronted. North Germanic vernacular
style. Two storeys, 2+2 windows (plus a blind window in the
centre), with buttressed corners, ornamental geometrical
half-timbering in the gable, and projecting verges with
bargeboards and apex finial; doorways close to the outer
corners, with panelled and glazed doors and rectangular stone
lintels; 3-light windows at ground floor and 2-light windows
at 1st floor, all with raised sills and rectangular stone
lintels (continuous over the 3 centre windows at 1st floor but
with relieving arches of red brick above the lintel), all
(apparently) horizontal sliding sashes, with central
horizontal glazing bars, and those above the doors with small
stone balconies protected by cast-iron latticed railings. Rear
and interior not inspected. Part of small but distinctive
settlement, said to have been built for immigrant North German
community. Rare example of domestic architecture reflecting
cosmopolitan nature of C19 Manchester society. Forms group
with other items in The Grove, including Nos 803-5 and No.807
Wilmslow Road (q.v.).
