City Centre B3
Nos 85 and 87
SP 0687 SE 28/12 21.1.70
1899, by William Henman and Thomas Cooper for Dr J E Parrott. In an Arts and
Crafts style and as subtly asymmetrical as it is interesting. Brick and stone.
Three storeys plus attic; 3 bays beneath a big gable plus a fourth narrow bay
representing the plane of the street and with a narrow sash window in moulded
surround on each floor. Ground floor rectangular in plan with 2 arched windows
on the left, the entrance up steps within an arched porch and 3 narrow flat-headed
sash windows on the right. Above the rectangular ground floor 2 canted bay windows
rise through first and second floors divided by french windows above the entrance
that give on to the balconies formed by a balustraded arcade at first floor level
and by a range of Tuscan columns at second floor level. The fenestration of the 2
bay windows completely different and the left-hand one at first floor level even
seems to indicate 2 floors. In the gable a tripartite window beneath a semi-circular
pediment; either side of the gable a pedimented dormer window. Nothing inside. One
of an important group of houses.
