BARNSTAPLE

SS5633 BEAR STREET
684-1/3/10 (South side (off))
31/08/88 Nos.9-18 (Consecutive) Ebberly Lawn
(terrace)

GV II

Terrace of 10 houses. 1868. By RD Gould; minor additions at
rear. Pale yellow brick with dressings of limestone and
patterned tiles; semi-basements of squared granite rubble. Nos
9 & 18 have added rendering, probably of C20. Slated roofs,
hipped at each end of the terrace; crested red ridge-tiles.
Large brick chimneys on ridge between each pair of houses,
some with good decorated pots, most look rebuilt, except
possibly for the chimney between Nos 15 & 16, which is
rendered with a moulded cap.
Each 1 room wide and 2 rooms deep on ground floor, with
entrance passage leading to rear staircase along one side. 2
rooms at the front on upper floors. Most of the houses have a
small rear wing, although the irregularity of their design
suggests these may be slightly later additions. No.18 differs
in having its entrance from the side in Bear Street, leading
to entrance passage between front and back rooms.
2 storeys with semi-basement and garret. Nos 10-17 are
designed in pairs, each 2-window range. Adjacent doorways in
centre of each pair are round-arched and flanked by inset,
square columns with carved stone capitals. Moulded imposts,
from which spring a hoodmould; keystone with incised
decoration. At either side in ground storey a canted bay
window with bracketed stone cornice and frieze of patterned,
polychrome tiles; low, wrought-iron railing on top.
Upper-storey windows have shouldererd stone heads projecting
slightly on corbels; those above the canted bays differ in
being of 2 lights with a chamfered central mullion. Bracketed
eaves cornice. Each house has a large hipped dormer with 2
sash windows (each sash with one upright glazing bar) and a
modillioned cornice. Nos 9 & 18 differ in having a 3-light
mullioned window replacing the bay in ground storey, the
lights round-arched with moulded decoration in the heads.
No.9 has a plain doorway with slightly recessed surround and
plain keystone. Except in the dormers, all the houses have
plain sashes without glazing bars. The side wall of No.18 has
a doorway similar to those of the other houses. The 2 ground
storey windows flanking it, and the middle upper-storey window
have shouldered arches; outer windows in upper storey are
canted bays.
Rear walls (visible from Alexander Road), have been altered in
some cases, but much original work remains. Nos 9-13, 16 & 17
retain barred sashes, usually of 6 panes per sash, although
Nos 9-12 have triple-sashes with 4 panes per sash in the
centre and 2 panes in the outer lights. Nos 10-13 & 17 have
original hipped dormers with 2-pane sashes. No.9 has a gabled
projection with half its sashes intact.
INTERIORS: not inspected, except for No.17 and part of No.18.
No.17 has moulded cornices in most rooms, including entrance
passage and stair compartment. Ground-floor front room has
ornate chandelier boss and original chimneypiece with
scroll-brackets supporting mantelshelf. Round-headed wooden
archway in entrance passage incised with Grecian ornament.
Wooden open-well stair with thin, square-section balusters,
voluted at the foot.
An attractive Barnstaple terrace by Gould with more detail
than might be expected on houses of this size and
sympathetically designed to answer the late C18 terrace
opposite.
