Description

Terraced two-bay four-storey commercial building, built c. 1865, as a pair with the adjoining building to the west. Projecting bow to ground floor, c. 1980. Pitched slate roof with rendered chimneystack, rendered parapet and dormer addition. Roughcast rendered walls to upper floors having corbelled eaves course, and decorative render surrounds to openings. Tripartite window opening to first floor with flanking render pilasters, having entablature and pediment above, and segmental-arched openings to upper floors. Timber sash windows. Fixed timber windows and pair of timber glazed doors with toplight to ground floor.

Appraisal

Built as a pair with the adjoining building to the west, this pair makes a positive contribution to the streetscape, due to the scale and form of the pair. Notable architectural features of the building include the tripartite windows and segmental-arched windows. The faƧade of the building is articulated by the decorative render detail, which was clearly executed by skilled craftsmen.
