Billington House

Detached house. Late C17 and C18, some C19 windows. Smooth rendered, asbestos-
cement slate roof, large brick stack, right, smaller stack, left gable. Plain
block, part lower than street level at west end, stair projection, gabled,
back. Two storeys and attic; ground floor, mainly below street level, has part-
glazed door incorporating radial light, under light cantilevered hood. At first
floor two 12-pane replacement sashes and a smaller single light left. At night
a panelled inner door with C20 glazed porch; on the east side this has a curved
segment of raking wall at lead-in to lower door. 12-pane raking half-dormer
centred over ground floor door. Back has gabled stair extension, to right a
16-pane raking dormer above 16-pane sash, above C20 glazed extension. Both
gables plain. Interior: Dog-leg stair with splatt balusters. Feet of large
roof principals visible, but boxed or papered. A puzzling building which may
have lost some windows to the street front.
