TIVERTON

SS9512 LEAT STREET, Tiverton
848-1/6/211 (West side)
Nos.9 AND 10

GV II

Pair of terraced houses on the north side of the entrance to
Heathcoat Square. Probably built in the 1860s or 1870s,
similar in style to the St Paul Street houses of the late
1850s.
MATERIALS: No.9 is of pinkish-yellow brick (the front rounded
corner now painted); No.10 is rendered, with incised masonry
markings. Rear wall to Heathcoat Square covered with
roughcast. Cast-iron window sills on left return front of
No.9. Slated roof, hipped at the back. Pinkish-yellow brick
chimneys on part wall and at rear of No.9, with projecting
courses at the top forming an entablature: 4 cylindrical
spiked pots on each chimney. Old red brick chimney, heightened
in later red brick and with spiked pots, to rear on the right.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, No.10 with garret. No.9 has 3-window
front to the entrance to Heathcoat Square and single window to
Leat Street; both this corner and the one at the other end,
adjoining the square, are rounded and recessed. No.10 is 2
windows wide with slightly off-centre doorway.
No.9 has early (possibly original) wooden shop front on the
front corner; flanking pilasters supporting entablature,
display window on each side of corner shop, the left-hand
window with 3 upright glazing bars. Double-doors to shop, the
upper sections with 2-paned glazing. House door replaced in
late C20, but deep reveals and soffit have wooden boards with
incised Greek decoration; 3-paned fanlight. To left of door
and at either end of upper storey, a window with 8-paned
sashes; above the door a window with 6-paned sashes.
No.10 has 3-panelled door, the 2 upper panels now glazed.
6-paned sash window to right of it. To left, and in upper
storey both of this house and the Leat Street front of No.9,
triple sash windows, the middle sashes of 6 panes, the other
ones of 2 panes. Deeply-projecting moulded eaves cornice
around both fronts.
Rear wall of No.10 (facing Heathcoat Square) has some
small-paned casement windows and a 2-light gabled dormer with
moulded barge-boards, the lights of 2 panes each.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORY: these were Heathcoat-built houses, No.9 (along with
No.2 Church Street (qv)) deliberately designed to provide a
new entrance to Heathcoat Square at the rear. A pencilled
alteration to the Heathcoat estate atlas of 1844 shows that a
house was demolished for this purpose; the original entrance
to the square was a little way further north in Leat Street.
The small-paned wooden sash windows and casements of these
simple houses are an important part of their design as is the
door surround at No.9.
