No.72

GV II

Terraced house, now with cafe to ground floor. Early C19.
Yellow brick set in Flemish bond, stucco, roof obscured by
parapet. Four storeys, two-window range. Ground floor has
flat-arched house entrance to left of early or mid-C19 bowed
shop front which retains its general outline though without
original glazing; inswept fascia and cornice overall. All
upper windows flat-arched with gauged brick heads (now
painted), those to first floor set in recessed round-arched
panels with stucco springing band; 6/6 sashes of original
design throughout, though the frames to the second and third
floors suggest replacement; cornice and parapet possibly of
composition stone. The interior has a standard dog-leg
staircase with stick balusters, but no other surviving
features of interest on the ground and first floors.
