Shop, house and business premises, originally built as seed
and wool stores for W & J Hutchings. Late C19. Cream-coloured
brick with stone dressings. Slated roofs with crested red
ridge-tiles and a finial. Chimney of matching brick on each
side wall on front range, both with decorated pots.
Plan consists of house at the front with cart entrance in
centre of ground storey, leading to long narrow courtyard at
the back with warehouses and offices on all 3 sides. Shop has
been inserted on right-hand side of frontage.
2 storeys with garret. 3-bay front with brick pilasters
flanking and separating the bays. Left-hand bay, with dormer
gable at the top, has 2-light window with curved stone lintel
in each of ground and 2nd storeys, the lights separated by a
stone column with carved capital. Narrower middle bay has cart
entrance with segmental brick arch and keystone carved with a
ram's head; double plank doors with open panels of
wrought-iron scrollwork at the top. Window with segmental
brick arch and keystone in upper storey. Right-hand bay has
doorway with segmental brick arch and keystone to left; C20
shop window to right. In upper storey 3 windows with segmental
brick arches and keystones. Above the middle and right-hand
bays a stone cornice and brick parapet, the former supported
by brackets reminiscent of machicolations.
The courtyard buildings are similar in character and
apparently in their original state. At the far end of the
left-hand side is a building with large, sliding wooden doors
in ground storey and an upper storey fronted with wooden
louvres. The building is a remarkably complete example of
combined dwelling and commercial premises in late C19.
