District Dogs' Home)
(Formerly Listed as:
Crofters House (Manchester and
District Dogs Home))


House. c.1810; altered. Painted roughcast, slate roof.
Double-depth double-fronted plan. Two storeys, 3 windows,
symmetrical. The ground floor has a central doorway (up 2
steps) with rusticated surround and panelled and glazed door,
flanked by 2 large semicircular bow windows which have Tuscan
pilasters, sashes with glazing bars, plain friezes and
cornices linked by a straight section which protects the
doorway. The 1st floor has 4-pane sashed windows, all with
raised sills and lintels scored to resemble voussoirs, that in
the centre narrower and with a plain surround as for a former
doorway (and the sill of this window of brick), suggesting
that the roofs of the bows and doorway were formerly used as a
balcony. Moulded gutter cornice; rebuilt gable chimneys; small
skylight in roof. Interior much altered but said to retain
plain but good original staircase.
