SY6873 MALLAMS, Fortuneswell
969-1/3/124 (South East side)
21/09/78 No.63
Fair Winds


Detached house at lower end of row. Early C19. Painted brick
front, in Flemish bond, rendered N gable, rubble elsewhere,
slate roof. A well-proportioned symmetrical two-storey, 3-bay
front. Blank window to centre at first floor, and C20
replacement casements remainder, all in moulded architraves to
plain stone cills; central pent porch over C20 glazed door.
Flush alternating stone quoins, bold cavetto eaves cornice
returning at ends. Raised coped gables to plain kneelers and
to flat central section with coping under brick stacks.
Returns have 2 small C20 lights at attic level, and back has a
raised centre section over the staircase under a raking roof,
and a full-width single-storey lean-to. Except for the
unfortunate loss of sash windows and original door, this is
rather more grand than most houses in the area, and is unusual
in having a brick frontage which the RCHM notes "the only use
of facing brick dating from before c.1850 on the Island".
