and attached railings and coach


Pair of large town houses, now barristers' chambers and
office. c.1830, for Peter Catterall (attorney), with very
early addition to make 2 houses; altered. Red brick in Flemish
bond, with sandstone dressings and slate roof. Deep
double-depth plan with back extensions and attached
outbuildings including former coach-house. Three storeys with
cellars and attics, 3+3 bays, but apparently designed
initially as 5 bays (vertical joints in the front and rear
walls, and an upstand over the 4th bay, showing that the 1st
bay was added to an otherwise symmetrical 5-bay composition);
ashlar basement, 1st-floor sill-band, plain frieze, moulded
cornice and blocking course with upstand over 4th bay. The
doorways, in the 1st and 4th bays resectively, both up 3 steps
with nosings (and boot-scrapers at No.14), have doorcases with
engaged columns, plain friezes and moulded cornices, but
differ in size and style: Tuscan at No.14 and Ionic at No.15
(the larger); No.14 has a modern door, No.15 has a panelled
door, both with overlights and that at No.15 with margin
panes. Attached at each side are cast-iron railings with
curvilinear balusters enclosing 2-bay basement areas (that to
the right with windows but the other now filled in). All the
windows are sashed without glazing bars, mostly unhorned, and
have raised sills and wedge lintels. Skylight and
segmental-headed dormer at No.14; coped gables, side-wall and
central chimneys. Right-hand return wall of No.15 (to Camden
Place) has various sashed windows on 3 levels; and a narrow
3-storey link to a 2-storey back extension which has sashes on
both floors. Attached to rear corner of this, and facing Back
Starkie Street, a cubic coach-house which has 2 elliptical
arches with triple keystones, the right-hand arch containing a
4-pane sash and the left formerly similar but now blind, a
stone band, 2 segmental-headed windows at 1st floor (the 1st
blind and the 2nd a 2-light casement), a stone gutter cornice
and pyramidal roof.
INTERIOR of No.15 has front room with egg-and-dart frieze and
elaborate plaster cornice; doglegged staircase with stick
balusters and wreathed mahogany handrail; full cellar suite,
with fireplace in front room (now blocked); otherwise,
