The Grove


Pair of houses. Probably c.1870. Mostly brown brick in header bond,
with some red brick, sandstone dressings, and some applied
"half-timbering"; slate roofs. Irregular plan with tower to
left and projecting wing to right (probably an early C20
addition). North German vernacular style. Two storeys except
for 3-storey tower, 2:3:3 windows, with some red brick bands.
The centre has a doorway to the left, with a trefoil stone
head, a large 3-light casement to the right, and 3 windows at
1st floor (1, 2 and 1 lights) each under a gablet projected
from the roof, the centre larger. The tower to the left has a
canted bay window at ground floor, 2 single-light windows at
1st floor, another single-light window at 2nd floor under a
projected steeply-pitched half-dormer roof, corbelled corners,
and a tall steeply-pitched hipped roof (the return side has,
inter alia, 2 similar gableted windows at this level). The
wing to the right has (inter alia) a recessed canted bay
window at ground floor, the upper floor carried on stone
columns either side, a stone balcony with cast-iron railings
to the left 1st-floor window, and ornamental half-timbering in
the gable. Part of small but distinctive settlement (The
Grove) 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 items in The Grove (q.v.) and Nos 803-5 Wilmslow Road
