SS5147 NORTHFIELD ROAD
853-1/6/105 (East side)
Nos.8 AND 9

GV II

Pair of houses with shops in ground storey, part of a much
altered terrace of similar date. Mid C19.
MATERIALS: rendered fronts. No.8 has roof with C20 tiles; No.9
has tarred slates. Red brick chimney on each right-hand side
wall, that of No.8 painted.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys with garrets. 2-window fronts. Ground
storeys divided into 2 bays flanked and separated by Doric
pilasters, except at the south end of No.8 where there is no
pilaster. Entablature above, the frieze breaking forward over
the pilasters. Doorways with ovolo-moulded surrounds in
narrower left-hand bays; 4-panelled doors, moulded at No.8
flush at No.9.
Shop windows in wider right-hand bays. That of No.8 is
probably original, divided into 4 lights by wooden mullions;
right-hand light canted, with glazed shop door adjoining. No.9
has slightly later shop window with recessed, glazed door in
centre.
Second-storey windows round-arched with moulded architraves,
each containing 2 recessed lights having round arches
springing from pilasters; centre pilaster is panelled and
arches have moulded archivolts.
Third-storey windows similar, except that all the arches are
segmental. Lights in both upper storeys have 2-pane sashes.
Box cornices at eaves-level. Each house has 2 gabled dormer
windows with eaves projecting on moulded brackets; window
openings round-arched with moulded architraves and plain
sashes.
INTERIORS not inspected.
The houses do not appear on the 1840 tithe map. They are among
the best surviving houses of their period in the shopping
centre.
