Row of 3 small town houses. c.1835-40, altered; rebuilding in
progress at No.57. Red brick in Flemish bond (No.57 painted
white at 1st floor, No.58 painted red, and No.59 tuck-pointed)
with sandstone dressings and slate roof. Double-depth plan,
each house single-fronted, with back extensions (those at
Nos.57 and 58 joined), and through-lobbies to the left of
No.57 and between Nos.58 and 59. Two storeys over cellars,
2+2+3 bays; with a plinth, 1st floor sill-band, plain frieze
and moulded gutter cornice. The doorways, coupled in the
centre of Nos.57 and 58, and to the right at No.59, have
moulded architraves with dentilled cornices on consoles, and
set-in steps to the doors; the lobby doorways, to the left at
No.57 and in the centre between Nos.58 and 59, have chamfered
surrounds and small cornices. Each house has one window at
ground floor and 2 above but No.59 also has a blind window
over the lobby doorway to the left, all (except this) with
altered glazing and those at ground floor with raised sills
and wedge lintels; cellar windows in the plinth. Large linear
multi-flue common chimney stacks. Rear: No.57 taken down at
rear for rebuilding and INTERIOR mostly stripped down to
brick, but front parlour retains window case with shutters;
otherwise not inspected. The item is part of a formerly
complete set of late Georgian lower-middle class town houses
in this street.
