House. C18 front and early C19 roof-raising; earlier core.
Timber-framed, faced in white brick; plaintiled roof with a
moulded eaves cornice.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellar. 5 window range: 12-pane sashes
to the ground and 1st storeys, all in flush cased frames with
flat gauged arches. A raised stucco band runs below the
2nd-storey windows, which are 6-pane in flush cased frames. A
further stucco band between the ground and 1st storey windows.
The northern part of the front, beyond the central entrance
door, is set back slightly, suggesting that 2 houses may have
been made into one. A recessed door with 6 raised fielded
panels has a fine fanlight with decorative glazing and a
wooden doorcase with panelled reveals, pilasters and an open
pediment. 2 arched cellar openings within the plinth.
INTERIOR: no part of the timber frame is exposed inside, the
interior having been entirely Georgianised. Stair to 1st
storey with turned balusters, closed strings and wreathed
moulded handrail. Windows with internal panelled shutters;
6-panelled doors with eared architraves.
On the top storey the balustrade to the stair is in Chinese
style. In the northern ground storey room, a fine Greek
Revival plaster frieze and cornice with circular paterae
between the triglyphs. The top storey of the front range is an
addition with a C19 roof; a lower rear range at right-angles
has a C18 side-purlin roof.
