Description

End-of-terrace three-bay two-storey house, built c.1800. To the rear there is a full-height flat-roofed return which took its present form in the mid 1900s. The fa├žade is finished in painted render with moulded voussoirs to the front ground floor openings. The gable-ended pitched roof is slated and has rendered chimneystacks. The entrance consists of a panelled timber door with semi-circular fanlight with spider's-web like tracery. The windows are flat-headed with those to the front filled with plain tripartite timber sash frames and those to the rear filled with one over one timber sash frames. Cast-iron rainwater goods. The property has a street frontage but has small areas at either side of the entrance enclosed by low rendered walls and cast-iron railings.

Appraisal

Well-preserved house of c.1800 which with its near neighbours to the north-west and the church to the north-east, forms part of an informal late Georgian 'square' which in itself is perhaps the highlight of the Rathdrum streetscape.
