House and shop in row. C16 with early C19 front. Set gable to
street, Flemish bond brickwork front on timber-framed body
including cross gable and deep back wing, which originally
formed a back block to the front range.
2 storeys and attic, 1-windowed. 2-light small-pane casement
to stone cill in gable, above C20 replacement, both these to
brick voussoirs. At ground floor, under full-width timber
fascia, an 8-pane fixed shop window, with to left part-glazed
door, all in rendered wall. Brick stack to right of ridge,
behind transverse ridge. In return to Chandlers Court at left
is a narrow gabled dormer unit with C18 lead-paned casement,
and a back wing with large panel timber-framing.
INTERIOR: 2 rooms to front, each with heavy transverse
chamfered beam with stepped run-out stops; that to front room
carried on later figure corbels. Winder stair. Central stack
rebuilt internally.
The back block, although not fully accessible, appears to be a
rare survival of post-medieval urban planning: it is not clear
how it was linked to the front range, although houses of the
"gallery and back-block" type have survived in Devon towns
such as Totnes and Barnstaple.
