TIVERTON

SS9512 ANGEL HILL, Tiverton
848-1/6/105 (South side)
14/12/72 Nos.12, 14 AND 16

GV II

Houses incorporating 3 shops. One house is divided into flats.
Originally one build, probably late C18 with late C19/early
C20 shop fronts. C20 alterations to the roof. Smooth-plastered
mass wall construction (the 1972 list description describes
No.16 as red brick, it has been rendered since); roof largely
concealed behind parapet; left end stack.
PLAN: the rectangular block occupies a corner site, with one
frontage onto Angel Hill and another (No.16) overlooking the
River Loman. It may have been 2 houses at the outset but has
been subdivided. The elevation rear of Angel Hill has 2-storey
projections.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys with C20 attic conversion. No.16 has a
half basement storey. Angel Hill frontage symmetrical above
ground-floor level with a 5-window elevation and rounded
corner at the right end. Platband at second-floor level and
below plain; coped parapet. The ground floor at the right end
is decorated with channelled rustication, which also survives
as a narrow pilaster at the left end. Disused doorway in
rusticated section at right end, the remainder of the ground
floor is occupied by shop fronts.
First floor has tall 2-light casements, 6 panes per light with
a low transom and margin panes and casements. Second-floor
windows as 12-pane horned sashes. Shop front to No.12, to the
left, has a recessed porch to the left containing a C20 door
to the accommodation and also a glazed door with a low panel
to the shop. Continuous fascia over the doorway and shop
window with brackets and cornice. Plate glass show window has
moulded mullions and frames. The shop front alongside to the
right has a fascia with left and right pilasters. Shop windows
canted in to glazed front door with a low panel and an
overlight. Large attic windows are visible in the altered
roof. Rear elevation has small-pane sashes and casement and a
tall 18-pane rear centre window.
No.16 has a symmetrical 3-bay front overlooking the river
Loman and platbands at first and second-floor level and below
the parapet which is decorated with sunk panels. Access to the
front door is off Angel Hill on an iron walkway on posts; the
walkway balustrade incorporates an oval motif and guilloche
frieze. Round-headed doorway has vermiculated rusticated
surround and bearded head as a keyblock, similar to the
Coadstone doorcases on the terraces in Southernhay, Exeter;
blind fanlight.
Ground-floor windows match first-floor windows on the Angel
Hill return. First-floor windows have been reglazed but
preserving the early embrasures and the central window opens
onto a pretty cast-iron balcony with lyre motif and Greek key
frieze. Outer second-floor windows are 16-pane hornless
sashes, the centre window has been reglazed as a 2-light
small-pane casement. Large C20 attic windows visible in raised
roof above parapet. The basement level has 12-pane sashes and
a C20 small-pane glazed door that opens on to the riverbank
walk.
INTERIOR: not inspected but might retain features of interest.
Nos 12 and 14 listed on 14/12/72. No.16 was listed on 12/2/52.
