Full Description

Three houses. c1870, altered C20. Yellow brick with some painted stone or artificial stone dressings. Slate mansard roof. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys plus attic. No.37 is symmetrical and of 3 bays. Nos 35 and 36 form a mirrored pair of one bay each with their windows adjoining and with their doorways to the outside. The windows are sashed without glazing bars. On the ground floor there are canted bay windows of brick with painted sills and lintels and with cast-iron cresting. The first floor windows have segmental brick arches: each bay contains paired windows except for the 2nd bay of No.37, which has a single window. The attic is lit by dormers: 2 to No.37 and one each to Nos 35 and 36. They are of brick with painted lintels and gable copings and finials, except for No.35, which has a rebuilt flat coping. The doors have 4 raised fielded and bolection-moulded panels and have overlights. The surrounds have brick pilasters with painted caps with foliated decoration and carved heads, and cornices with cast-iron cresting, carried on paired brackets. The eaves have brick corbelling. Chimneys to left and between houses. INTERIORS: not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: the walls enclosing the front gardens of Nos 36 and 37, and the front garden wall of No.35, are of brick with chamfered stone copings. The walls to Nos 35 and 36 have railings of cast-iron imitating wrought-iron, with standards linked by an upper horizontal rail and with semi-circles springing from a lower rail which has cast rosettes at the intersection with shorter intermediate uprights. No.37 has no railings to its left-hand return wall. The front wall carries re-used cast-iron panels decorated with ellipses, rectangles and diagonals. The cast-iron gate piers are of square plan, chamfered to octagons, with ball finials. The gate repeats the pattern of the railings and appears to be C20 and of mild steel.
