House. Early C19. Stuccoed granite rubble. Double span slate hipped roof with
lead rolls to hips and ridge. Brick shafts to stacks on side walls.
Double-depth plan with principal front room on either side of central entrance hall
with slightly wider stair well at rear of hall. Behind the right-hand rooms is

unheated service roofs.

and paired brackets to eaves fascia board. Original 16-pane sashes with louvred
shutters. Central doorway with panelled reveals, rectangular overlight with
intersecting diamond pattern glazing bars and transom with zigzag decoration.
Large Doric porch with octagonal columns with reeding, pilasters with paterae and
entablature with dentilled cornice and triglyph frieze flanking walls left and

moulds, left-hand later boarded door.
Rear elevation has large round-headed stair window at centre with original 18-pane
sash, flanked by tripartite first floor sashes, 16-pane sash to ground floor left
and C20 door to right.
Interior: plan and features intact including open well stair in well at rear of
hall, with open string stick balusters, turned newels and moulded handrail. The
early C19 joinery, such as panelled doors, doorframes and internal window shutters,
is largely complete, except for chimneypieces in front rooms which have been taken
out. Simple moulded ceiling cornice in main front rooms and hall.
Including front garden area railings with spearheads to shafts and baluster
stanchions with own finials. The central gate is C20 wrought iron. Left-hand gate

complete. As an unconverted house in the town centre it makes a valuable
contribution to the townscape.
