TL 0338 1/32 17.7.51.
Early C18 house of 5 storeys; formerly known as Foulislea. Brick, liberally
dressed with grey stone (skirting, cills, keystones, long-and- short quoins,
rich classical cornice and plain coping above brick parapet). 5 windows.
The regular flat facade is broken in the centre, where an elaborately carved
porch (4 modified Roman Corinthian columns, surmounted by a carved entablature
including a pulvinated frieze) gives rise to a square brick bay, which
runs up the whole height of the house. This bay has 2 narrow windows on
its flanks at each upper storey. Panelled door within the porch. Up to
the cornice all courses on the facade are of headers only; the parapet
of Flemish bond: the side of English bond. A wrought iron railing, set
in a stone footing, running from the steps of the porch, encloses the whole
building. Later additions at back. Richly carved wooden staircase inside.
Nos 1 to 39 (odd) and Court House form a group with No 127 Dunstable Street.
