BARNSTAPLE

SS5533 PILTON STREET, Pilton
684-1/6/378 (East side)
Nos.112-121 (Consecutive)

GV II

Terrace of 10 houses. 1888 (datestone). Flemish bond yellow
brick; natural slate roof; stacks with yellow brick shafts
with cogged cornices and old pots. Symmetrical terrace, Nos
118 & 119 (in the centre), larger with paired doors towards
the centre; terrrace has concave curve at Nos 120 & 121. Nos
122 & 123 (qv) are probably part of the same design but are
detached and larger.
2 storeys. More architectural detail than might be expected
from a terrace of this size. 20-window range, 2 windows to
each house. Moulded brick eaves brackets; roughcast platband
interrupted by first-floor window cills. Each house has a
doorcase with a keyblock within a segmental-headed hoodmould;
front door with a fanlight with spoke glazing (most front
doors renewed but No.120 has a plank door which may be
original). Ground-floor windows have segmental-headed arches
and keyblocks held within square-headed hoodmoulds with carved
corbels. Windows glazed with 2-pane sashes with margin panes.
First-floor windows similarly glazed with moulded stone
lintels.
Nos 118 & 119, in the centre, are designed as a pair with a
coped gable in the centre with the date of 1888 above
nowy-headed louvred openings. Front doors together in the
centre have coped gables on shallow corbelled projections and
triangular overlights. Ground-floor windows match those of the
rest of the terrace, roughcast platband has grisaille
ornament. First floor has string course rising to meet
corbelled hoods over first-floor windows which are glazed with
2-pane sashes with margin panes.
INTERIOR: not inspected but may retain features of interest.
This is a characteristic late C19 Barnstaple terrace, in an
important conservation area with more external decoration than
might be expected and a symmetrical design with parallels to
several early C19 terraces in the town. Included for group
value.
