House. Early C19. White brick; slate roof with a paired wood
modillion eaves cornice.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellars. 5 window range, arranged
2:1:2 with the centre breaking forward slightly. Moulded stone
string courses run between the storeys and the plinth is
topped by a stone moulding. The 1st and 2nd storey windows are
all 12-pane sashes and the 2nd storey are 6-pane sashes, all
in plain reveals with projecting stone sills and flat gauged
arches. One 1st-storey window is blank. The central door, up 2
stone steps, has 6 sunk panels with ornate applied mouldings.
The wood Doric doorcase has plain reveals, fluted pilasters
and a triglyph frieze and cornice. A high white brick wall
with 4 plain pilasters spaced along it and a plain stone
coping links No.71 on the south to No.70 (qv). Between the
centre pilasters is a plain boarded door in plain reveals with
a flat gauged arch.
At the rear are two 2-storey extensions, both with hipped
roofs: on the south in white brick and slates, the other,
possibly originally an outbuilding, with weatherboarding and
C20 concrete tiles. The back wall of the main range is in red
brick with a projecting stair wing.
INTERIOR: extensive cellars with C18 timber ceilings, many of
the timbers reused, and brick walling with arched recesses.
Mainly early C19 features inside with some early C20
alterations to the layout: 6-panel doors with sunk panels;
panelled and moulded internal window shutters; moulded
cornices in various styles, egg-and-dart, Greek key and
paterae. One upper fireplace has an eared architrave and 3
upper rooms have raised 'duck's nest' grates.
A winder stair which rises to the attic storey has stick
balusters, open bracketed strings and moulded handrails.
