KEYNSHAM

ST6568 HIGH STREET
739-1/4/40 (West side)
19/06/75 Nos.2 AND 4

GV II

Pair of attached houses, now shops and offices. Circa 1840
with mid C20 alterations. Render with stone dressings, pantile
and single-Roman tile roofs with end rendered stacks. STYLE:
Italianate.
PLAN: double-depth plan.
EXTERIOR: symmetrical pair, each 3-storey; 2-window ranges.
Plinth, chamfered quoins, modillion cornice and blocking
course to blind parapet. Ground floor to each has mid C20 shop
window and doorcase to central party wall with moulded
round-headed architrave, brackets and keystone; 6-panel door
to No.2, glazed door to No.4, both with plain fanlights. First
floor to each has canted 4-light oriel window above shopfront
with ribbed cornice, moulded sill and round-headed plate-glass
sashes, and round-headed opening above doorway with imposts,
keystone and plate-glass sash. Upper floors have plate-glass
sashes in plain round-headed surrounds.
INTERIOR: nothing survives on the ground floor of No.4 either
of the original room layout or any architectural features of
note. No.2 and upper floors of both houses not inspected.
The building is an interesting example of the local Italianate
idiom derived from Bath, is visually commanding in the
streetscape and has group value with adjacent Milward House,
Bristol Road (qv).
