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 and smooth rendered chimneystacks, granite verge coping to south, uPVC gutters on painted timber fascia to overhanging eaves, uPVC downpipe. Squared coursed rubble stone walling to west, block-and-start tooled granite quoins to south-west corner, roughcast-rendered walling to south and east. Square-headed window openings, block-and-start bull-nosed yellow brick jambs, flat-arched bull-nosed brick lintels, granite sills, painted timber six-over-six (ground floor) and three-over-six (first floor) windows. Square-headed door opening, block-and-start bull-nosed yellow brick jambs, flat-arched bull-nosed brick lintel, painted timber panelled door with timber-spoked half-round glazed top panel. Fronts directly onto street, garden to east bounded by random rubble stone wall, 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.
