Description
Terraced two-bay four-storey gabled red brick townhouse, built c.1880, with recent shopfront to ground floor. Now in mixed commercial use. Pitched slate roof set with ridge set perpendicular to street behind front gable with interlocking machine-cut granite coping. Rendered chimneystacks to south party wall. Red brick walls laid in English garden wall bond, rebuilt to top floor. Gauged brick camber-headed window openings with masonry sills and replacement two-over-two pane timber sliding sash windows. Gable-fronted yellow brick two-storey structure to the rear of site fronting onto Jervis Lane Upper.

Appraisal

This building forms one of the few Victorian buildings on the long, narrow thoroughfare laid out from 1678 and dominated by eighteenth-century buildings with later alterations. Though of a later date, the building is in keeping with the scale and composition of neighbouring buildings and its gabled façade recalls the Dutch Billy structures that once dotted this street, contributing to the variety of building types that characterizes this early streetscape.
