Original Useworker's house
In Use Ashouse
End-of-terrace two-bay two-storey former railway worker's house, built 1872, now in private domestic use. Extension to east. Pitched slate roof, clay ridge tiles, red brick chimneystack, granite verge coping to south, red brick eaves course, cast-iron gutters on overhanging eaves. Squared coursed rubble limestone walling, block-and-start tooled granite quoins to south-west, unpainted roughcast-rendered walling to south and extension. Square-headed window openings, block-and-start bull-nosed yellow brick jambs, flat-arched bull-nosed brick lintels, tooled granite sills, painted timber top-hung casement windows; uPVC windows to extension. Square-headed door opening, block-and-start bull-nosed yellow brick jambs, flat-arched bull-nosed brick lintel, painted timber panelled door, plain-glazed overlight. Fronts directly onto street, communal lane to south giving access to rear site, random coursed stone wall with soldier coping forming southern boundary of east garden.


This modest terraced house is a fine example of late-nineteenth-century worker's housing. Built for the workers of the Great Northern Railway, which was completed in 1873, the terrace is an integral part of Greenore. Their simple forms are enhanced by the attractive yellow brick window dressings, a feature of Euston Street, and they stand as a reminder of the development of Greenore as an important transit point in the late-nineteenth century.
