(Formerly Listed as:
ST PETER'S STREET
Nos.26 AND 28)
Pair of houses, now four flats. c1790s (information from the
owner). Smooth-plastered mass wall construction; asbestos
slate roof, hipped at ends; end stack with brick shafts. Rear
of No.28 slate-hung; No.26 reputed to have cob party wall with
PLAN: believed to have been built as one (No.26) for the
developer with a smaller, but matching house for rental;
flying freehold with entrance passage to No.28 under first
floor of No.26. 2 rooms wide and two rooms deep but the houses
do not have the same plan. Both had basement kitchens.
No.26 has a rear projection containing the stair, which is on
a more generous scale than No.28, which has a service room in
the rear projection and a more cramped turning stair within
the main block. Side passage to left of No.26.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and basement. Half-glazed door to passage
to left. 2:2-window front. Houses have front doors with
round-headed doorways with pilasters with sunk panels and
fluted capitals. 6-panel doors with fielded upper panels (top
panels glazed); blind fanlights with fielded panelled
quarter-circles; boot-scraper to No.28. Windows have boxed
frames and some old glass; bottle glass to basement windows.
16-pane sashes to ground floor, and first floors right;
12-pane sashes above front doors. 2 over 8-pane sashes to
second floor right; 3 over 6 to left.
INTERIOR: features of interest survive in both houses,
including original: 2-panel doors, stick baluster stairs of
different designs, plaster cornices, cupboards with original
hinges and later Victorian chimney-pieces.
HISTORY: this pair of houses is particularly interesting as a
development where both houses appear to be the same externally
but where, internally, one is far more modest in scale.
