pilasters. Entrance to No.3 is inserted 6-panel door in left
end bay; entrance to No.5 in rear extension. In right of
centre bay, C19 cart arch beneath massive lintel, now closed
by wrought-iron gates. Left of arch is late C19 shopfront of
plain pilasters and frieze beneath moulded cornice between
scrolled, grooved consoles surmounted by gablets. Shop door
boarded over beneath fanlight, to right of 8-pane sash window.
To right of arch, 25-pane sash window with sunk-panel
shutters. First floor windows are 16-pane sashes. Raised first
floor band; coved boarded eaves.

fire-window arch, pilasters and raised first floor band are
visible. On first floor, three original segmental arches
survive over later windows.
INTERIOR: of No.3: exposed chamfer-stopped beams and joists on
both floors, supported on ground floor by dwarf Doric column.
Against left end wall, later fireplace survives to brick
chimney hood, visible on first floor. On first floor, two
rooms have early C19 fireplaces with cast-iron grates. RCHM
file records a blocked 2-light window in the gable wall of
No.3, with timber-frame and mullion.
Interior of No.5 not inspected.
This is an interesting example of a rural vernacular
house-type, unusual in an urban setting and unique in York.
