Town house. Mid C18; altered. Colour-washed roughcast render
(rear of random rubble with quoins), slate roof with stone
chimneys. Double-depth double-fronted plan.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, now with 4 windows at 1st floor but
originally with 5. Offset right of centre is a doorway with
moulded stone surround and segmental pediment, panelled door
with glazed panels in the centre and top. Left of the doorway
is a 2-storey flat-roofed canted bay window with hornless 12-
and 8-pane sashes; all other windows are hornless 12-pane
sashes. Attached to the front wall each side of the doorway
are cast-iron bar railings with anthemion heads. Attached to
the left corner at 1st-floor level is a lantern on a bracket.
Rear: 3 storeys and 4 windows (including 2 vertically aligned
stair windows offset left), all except the lower of these
being 12-pane sashes with exposed boxes; back door now covered
by recently-built link to former single-storey wash-house
(which is not of special interest).
INTERIOR: right-hand front room has fielded panelling and fine
mid C18 stone fireplace with moulded surround and corbelled
lintel with fluted key, and above this an overmantel made of
ex situ C17 panelling dated 1686; rear hallway has fine
mid-C18 doglegged staircase with closed string, square newels,
turned balusters and broad moulded handrail; in the corner of
the half-landing between 1st and 2nd floors, an extremely
unusual shallow triangular lead-lined sink with a drain hole,
thought to have been provided as gentlemen's urinal.
HISTORICAL NOTE: built for Thomas Swettenham.
