panels. Garden front is a symmetrical 2-window range between
end pilasters. Central doorway to the basement contains
another 6-panel door, similar to the main door. Flanking
12-pane sashes with margin glazing. Ground floor has tall
French windows onto a cast-iron balcony with ornamental

SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: The road embankment forms the street side
of the garden. It is revetted with stone and has ornamental
cast-iron railings.
This is one of a good group of houses dating from the second

which was built in 1825 to enable, for the first time,
horse-drawn carriages in and out of the town.
