Listing Text

No 12A
(Pease's House)
(Formerly listed
as No 12)
NZ 2814 SE 8/174 28.4.52.


The back of this house is reached by an alley from Horsemarket but its main front
faces the opposite way on to a small square, and has a return to Bull Wynd. Late
C18 or early C19 front to house with probable mediaeval core. Some large random
rubble stonework on the return, the shape of the back as seen from the alley and
the extreme irregularity of the 3-storey, 5-window front support this theory.
(Internal inspection not possible; house empty at time of listing). Slated roof
of fairly low pitch in front with 2 ridge stacks and a modern imitation C17 right
end stack. Sash windows, many with bars, in slightly recessed wood box frames.
Later C19 Venetian windows and a cantedbay on ground floor. Victorian 4-panel
door in C18 surround of rusticated alternating blocks with heavy triple keystone.
Walls pebble-dashed or rendered.
At left a length of C17 red brick wall has an elliptical arch with key and impost
Plaque in front: Edward Pease, known as the father of the railways, lived here.
Rear elevation shows sash windows with glazing bars in box frames; and a 6-panel
door in stone surround with outer rusticated pilasters, cornice and pediment.
