Description

Early 19th century. 2 storeys, 3 bays with 2 late 19th century piended, canted dormers. 3 central pilastered doors (1 now blocked) with continuous entablature and scooped blocking course; flanking windows; 3 architraved windows to 1st floor; all windows with moulded cills. Painted ashlar. Base course; raised angle margins; eaves course, cornice and blocking course.

S (REAR) ELEVATION: late 20th century, non-traditional single storey brick extension; catslide dormer to attic of main building.

Plate glass to shop windows; uPVC glazing replacing 4-pane timber sash and case windows, probably originally 12-pane. Grey slates; stone ridge; end stack with circular clay cans.

INTERIOR: no original features surviving.

Statement of Interest

A photograph of 1979 shows this building and 13-17 Eglinton Street next door (separately listed) unified by the openings and margins picked out in matching paint. The photograph also shows the traditional glazing in all the windows including the dormers but excluding the shop windows. The building is clearly contemporary with that next door and the two together make a good group in Eglinton Street. The doorpieces are distinctive and both buildings have the potential to be restored.
