Description

Circa 1800. Near identical pair of 2-storey, 3-bay houses, sharing common roof line and similar skewputts. No 28; dry-dashed with pointed quoin s and margins, base course eaves course and cornice. Corniced, pilastede doorpiece. Ground floor windows enlarged with modern glazing, plate glass sashes at 1st floor. No 30; not as ornate; harled with pointed margins, eaves curse and cornice. Sash and case windows with 4-pane glazing. Grey slates, ashlar skews, scroll skewputts, corniced stacks.

INTERIOR: no 28 has fine beaded plasterwork to hall, turnpike stair, simple ceiling rosette with flower motif, fluted door architraves.

No 30; little plsterwork survives, simple classical chimneypieces.

OUTBUILDING: single storey outbuilding to rear of No 28, with lintel dated 1806, and gable with projecting corbels. Original purpose uncertain.

Statement of Interest

These houses were possibly single storey cottages, raised to 2-storey circa 1800; this is suggested by the thickness of the walls at ground floor level. Although similarly detailed, and close to one another in date, No 28 is more elaborate, with defined quoins, classical doorpiece (possibly re-used) and finer interior detailing.
