Description

Terraced two-bay two-story house, built c.1870. One of a uniform terrace of three with the buildings adjacent to the east (15310179 and 15310180). Shared natural slate roof, hipped to the west end, having shared rendered chimneystacks. Ruled-and-line rendered walls over projecting plinth. Square-headed window openings with replacement windows. Segmental-headed doorway to the west end of the front fa├žade (north) having timber door with herringbone pattern, plain glass overlight and carved timber brackets supporting a carved timber lintel over. Set slightly back from road with small garden to the front (north) bounded by cast-iron posts and railings.

Appraisal

A plainly detailed mid-to-late nineteenth-century house, which retains its early character and form. This building forms part of a good quality terrace of three buildings, which together make a positive contribution to the streetscape. This building is enlivened by the retention of a good quality timber doorcase having an unusual herringbone pattern to the door. The loss of the original window fittings, although regrettable, fails to detract substantially from this otherwise intact house. The cast-iron railings and posts to the front add additional merit and add incident to the streetscape. This building makes a positive contribution to Bishop's Gate Street, forming part of a varied collection of mid-to-late nineteenth-century houses along the south side of this street.
