Description

Detached three-bay two-storey house, built 1862. The house is finished in render. The panelled front door is framed with panelled pilasters; it has plain sidelights and a "spider's web" pattern leaded fanlight, all set within a semi-circular headed opening, which itself is framed with panelled pilasters. To either side is a canted two-storey bay with a hipped roof. The window openings are all flat-headed and rest on a sill course with one over one timber sash fames with margins. There is a decorative cast-iron balconette to the central first floor window to the front elevation. The pitched roof is finished with slate and cast-iron rainwater goods and serrated clay ridge tiles; chimneystacks have corbelled caps with clay chimney pots. The house is set within a large private garden. The wrought-iron gates with square gate pillars lead to a long driveway.

Appraisal

A fine and well preserved mid Victorian house which is in excellent condition. Although not visible from the road this house adds much to the architectural heritage of Bray.
