Original Useworker's house
In Use Ashouse
Terraced two-bay two-storey former railway worker's house, built 1872, now in private domestic use. Pitched slate roof, clay ridge tiles, red brick chimneystack with yellow brick corbel course, cast-iron gutters on painted timber fascia to overhanging eaves. Squared coursed rubble limestone walling, unpainted smooth rendered walling to east. Square-headed window openings, block-and-start bull-nosed yellow brick jambs, flat-arched bull-nosed brick lintels, tooled granite sills, painted timber six-over-six sliding sash windows. Square-headed door opening, block-and-start bull-nosed yellow brick jambs, flat-arched bull-nosed brick lintel, painted vertically-sheeted timber door, tripartite overlight. Fronts directly onto street, garden to east with communal laneway giving access to gardens forming eastern boundary.


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.
