139 with boundary wall

II

Detached house. Early to mid-C18 but much modified. Rendered
and scribed, small area of exposed large Portland stone block
to ground floor left, asbestos cement slate roof, some stone
slate. A free-standing property facing north along Chiswell.
Two storeys. Central 3-storey 'tower' porch to coped gable has
plain sashes over C20 door with very narrow transon light. To
right are paired 4-pane sashes at ground and first floors,
each with central rendered flush mullion. To left of porch
similar paired sashes at first floor, above a blocked former
shop-front - here some of the structural stonework exposed.
Stone gable stacks with cappings, left gable with raised
verge. Gable to road has attic light, and blocked door to
right; at the back, which has some stone slating, a plain sash
centrally at ground and first floors. Interior said to be
completely altered, but this still offers externally evidence
of its early provenance, and holds a key position visually at
the south end of Chiswell.
