ST5445 ST ANDREW STREET
662-1/7/247 (North side)
House in row. Late C18, with mid C19 alterations. Rendered and
colourwashed, Welsh slate roof between coped gables, brick
chimney stacks, partly rendered. Symmetrical parallel range
plan, but the front range has been modified, with no rear
slope at its west end.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attics, 3 bays. Plinth, cornice with
timber box gutter on a coved cornice. Sash windows to outer
bays, plain below and 12-pane above, in centre a C20 panelled
door with square transom-light in plain surround, and above is
a blind panel with ovolo mould architrave, impost blocks and
keystone. The ground-floor windows have `floating' keystones,
and all sills are in stone. Three 2-light C20 casement windows
in gabled dormers, with slating to gables and cheeks.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
The site has been occupied since at least since the C13, when
the street was known as Byestewel. The present property was
probably rebuilt at the same time as Nos 4 & 6 (qqv), with
which it shares some detail; it is set back approx 300m from
these adjoining units.
