No 27 and 27A
SP 0687 NW 24/11
C1830 former pair of town houses, subsequently altered to jewellry quarter
offices with shopping extending into rear ranges. An effective well proportioned
symmetrical Greek Revival design with 4 bay 3 storey main block flanked by
narrow 2 storey entrance bays, all stucco faced. The main block projects
slightly with an engaged Greek Doric colonnade of coupled fluted columns
and deep entablature across the ground floor and returned over entrance bays.
Second floor sill band in the form of entablature with guttae underpinning
to projecting sills. Quoin pilasters to this floor and string course broken
forward as cornice over the windows. Dentils to main cornice and crowning
parapet. Ground floor sash windows in plain reveals; architrave surrounds
to windows on upper floors, those on first floor with full entablatures.
Doorways in flanking bays, have splayed, eared architrave surrounds; the right
hand doorway is now a garage entrance. A consistently detailed unaltered
flank Doric elevation and as such a rare survival in the jewellry quarter and
indeed the city centre.
