WELLS

ST5445 ST ANDREW STREET
662-1/7/248 (North side)
No.6

GV II

House in row. Late C18, with mid C19 alterations. Rendered and
colourwashed, rubble in rear wing, slate roof, brick stacks.
Front range, with entry to right, has long rear wing, with
access by throughway under next property (not included).
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic, 2 bays; a 3-light casement
hipped dormer above 4-pane sashes in plain reveals. At ground
floor, right, a 9-panel C19 door under transom-light. At left
end is a panelled pilaster. The coved cornice runs full width
and returns to the plain gable end to the right.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
The site has been occupied 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 and 5 (qqv) with
which it shares some details, and is included for group value.
